OK, I don't know what a '3-cornered one" is but sounds like you don't have an 8N generator or you do and are asking about a 2N or 9N-C genny belt tensioning device. The 9N-10000-C and the 2N-10000 generators are 1-wire/3-brush type units, A circuit deign and both use the round can cutout. They are virtually the same inside and out except the belt tensioner on the 2N was a standard item bolted on and the 9N-C generator had a dealer available kit that used the steel band around the barrel to fasten with. The 8N-10000 A and B, 3-wire/3-brush A circuit type, with a voltage regulator, used on front mount tractors, used a belt tensioning arm, p/n 8N-10145 see MPC, and fastened to the timing cover and genny mount bracket. SEE pictures below. If you have an8N genny and need the belt tensioning arm, I have about a dozen. $15 includes shipping. Email is open.
