Putting a stock 6V generator in place. Lower bracket holding the pulley aligned with the one from the pump so I think that is right. The top bracket is the non-adjustable type.

Where does it go from - Thermostat housing (there is blank hole on the back) or the top water pump bolt? In either case there seems to be no way the pump with a new belt (from Steiner)
would stretch enough to allow me to bolt it up that way and it would seem to put the generator too far out to fit under the hood. If it means loosening the pulley to try to allow it to
fit my second question is....

My set screw in the pulley is frozen in place and it is so small I can't find a way to force it out (screwdriver on the end just seems to tear it up).

Could someone post picks of a stock 6v generator installed?

This is the best I could find on the net. The generator bracket has to be installed with the mount ears to mount the bottom of the generator sloping down. And yes the top bracket inside end mounts to the thermostat housing.
Poke for image

So I was able to stretch the belt enough to get it all put together and hopefully that belt gives a little once it runs a bit. Now my concern is just how much the generator seems to hang out past the radiator. Is this going to work under the hood? These are all stock parts so I am not sure how else it would go.

I think I figured it out. Looking at other pictures I am not sure this is exactly the right generator. It seems to have slightly different bracket castings and the Arm. and Field connections are further away from the bracket. I got this one off of a parts tractor that didn't have a hood so maybe someone just made this one work. Trying a different one....

should not matter as it will still fit under the hood, check that bottom bracket. its only a one way thing. and yes that top arm is not
factory.

Thanks! Yep that's how my lower bracket is and since the top brace is the same it has to just be that the front piece is different on this generator. I will take a comparison shot when I take this one off.

the generator has to sit right up to the valve cover maybe 1/2 away. that top mount bracket you have is not original and maybe too long
leaving the gen. sticking out past the hood.

also if the belt is as tight as it looks it will wipe out the water pump's bearings in short order.

The front of that generator does not look right to me, and you really need that moveable sheave working. The "set screw" was a round head screw at some point in its life. Drill it out.

I am with you there. There really is just no way this generator is right.

So havent put the new one on yet(think its non-functional) but you can see the top bracket mount is much farther over on the replacement than whatever this generator is

meaning far less tension and a closer fit with the top at the same distance.
