10-4 ---didn't read thru it all the way. So, yes, he has the 8N generator and would need the VR with it. The trick is where to mount the VR as no provision on 9N & 2N's. His original post stated, “…[I have] a generator 2 brush with the 2 set screws tapped into it and the spring bolt adjustment.” If he has the two screws for the tension arm, I surmised it was the 2N unit. The fact it has two terminal studs on the barrel and one on the back end plate was an important piece of the puzzle he should have first stated. His gen also has a 3rd Brush adjustment screw. How did he determine it had 2 Brushes? It’s possible, many 3-Brush Units were changed to 2; there’s even a service bulletin on how to do so. Seems somebody sold or he got a hold of the wrong generator. Me? I’d get the correct 2N gen and use the cutout and not muck around with a VR. He’d have to also get a new wiring harness if was to do that.
