This is an extremely hard to find original KW lighting generator or dynamo for an early tractor, car, or truck. These were pricey aftermarket items to add headlights to your early prairie tractor or car or truck. It might also be able to be used as an ignition dynamo for an early hit and miss gas engine. It is a belt driven dynamo or you could adapt some sort of friction pulley onto the shaft to be flywheel driven. It is in excellent condition with no cracks, breaks, or repairs of any kind except for some slight delamination of one magnet which is common on KW magnets. This won’t affect anything and is cosmetic only. It is a model SA with 3 magnets. There is almost no noticeable wear in the bearings. It turns smoothly with excellent magnetic pull. I checked it just before I took the pictures and it puts out excellent voltage. It is on the original brass or bronze base and mounts on a 2 x 4 inch bolt pattern. The mounting brackets are slotted to keep the correct belt tension. It will need a drive pulley but this should be a pretty straightforward project or you may have a spare on the parts shelf. These generators hardly ever turn up in the wild or even at swap meets so if you’ve been looking for one don’t miss your chance on this one. It is an extremely nice one that needs nothing other than a pulley or friction wheel. It will likely be a long time before another one turns up! It would also make a great spare on the shelf. Let the pictures be your guide. You won’t be disappointed in any way. I can be reached at 262 573 1931 if you’d like to talk about it.
