Model A Part

05/13/2012 2:43 PM

My friend who has an alternator shop asked me to help find a part for him. I couldn't find it by Googleing, so I'm posting it here. It's a 1928 Model A Powerhouse Generator 3 brush brushholder complete with brush clips. On the picture, the arrow is pointing to a crack in the holder. If you can direct me to where to find this part, I'll direct him.

Thanks,

PAPADOC

There are clubs for Model A Fords; have you tried them? AACA has a forum where you can ask, and probably a place to put ads although I haven't done that myself. Probably there is a Yahoo Group (I don't know for sure, because I stick to the fire service.) Another reply mentioned eBay. I'm sure there are electrical shops that deal with stuff for antique vehicles. I haven't seen Hemmings Motor News for years, but that is a place to look for the part and for ads for electrical shops.
