Do they make a genernator for the Ovals?
This is where they put an alternator inside an original generator housing.
I didn't know if it was possible to put an alternator in a generator so small.

The new alternators will not fit in the older 36 HP generator stand. If you want a 12 volt generator there is a Porsche one that fits but they are much more expensive.

Look for ads from Rickc. He converts 36hp generators into 12 volts.

The Gener-Nator looks and mounts the same as the original generator because it is the original generator but converted internally to an alternator.

You can ask here :

You need the 90mm small case generator 12v Porsche. it came on 914 models. as previously said, these are extremely expensive. Or, have yours converted to 12 volts. There is an old Bosch technician in Los Angeles where I picked mine up from. He is old school, very knowledgeable. Ill see if I can find his # for you. He made my 12 volt generator for me that fits the 36hp stand.

This is my 90mm 12v converted generator, I got it off of EBay from BNR parts, I believe they are in Van Nuys.

Is this the same 90mm (small case) measurement for the 36hp generator stand that's integrated into the case?
