Anyone know of a source for PE-162 generator brushes?  I sent an inquiry to fair radio, so far no luck connecting.
My 162 is a garage sale score.  It started right up but the governor wasn't governing. It seems like one of the noise supression caps is acting like a 200 ohm resistor and it may have caused an HV brush to overheat and jam itself in the holder. Bottom line, the brushes are messed and the wire is detached. .
Any ideas?  GRC-9 portable season is right around the corner.

Will these work Tom? It says they are for the GRC-9?

Not quite Terry. Those are for the mobile dyno power supply thats in my Jeep. The brushes I'm looking for are for the 1hp 2-stroke generator.  Its a cool little gas generator that runs 16:1 gas/oil mix so it doubles as a mosquito control smoke generator.
I managed to clean up the bad brush and reattach the copper wire - lets see if it lasts.
The generator governor still needs some adjustment to get the voltages right.

Ok Tom, I know this won't help you over there but as a suggestion for new brushes, I would call a electric motor repair facility. I went to a motor repair place a long time ago in Plattsburg, NY and they actually had at least a thousand different types of brushes in stock. Plattsburg is not that big but there is one paper company in town that uses motors and it is also a farm hub so maybe that's the draw for their business?

I guess you would need to take a sample with you.
