Re: {Chrysler 300}



Don Verity is correct. There is nothing inherently wrong with generators. Don't forget, WWII was won on points, condensers and generators. If you keep the generator clean, with good brushes and bearings, they work great for cars of their era. I have lots of cars with generators and have no problems keeping batteries charged.

The main reason for switching from generators to alternators was the increasing amount of power accessories being added to cars. Generators couldn't keep up, especially at idle. Alternators are simpler and put out more power at lower revs. This doesn't mean generators are bad, they just have their limitations.

Hi Rick,

I don’t know about the electrical superiority of alternators relative to generators, but I have also heard that alternators are better for some reason.  But if switching to an alternator becomes more difficult than rebuilding the generator, I just wanted to give some encouragement that the generators are fairly easily rebuilt, as I understand it.

Dave,

The existing generator would need to be rebuilt or replaced and I have an alternator. I know there are differing opinions but I believe an alternator is preferred. Why would all manufacturers discontinue generators for alternators in the early 60's if they were superior?
