Default Re: Replacing generator field windings

I recently replaced the field coils on two starters (converted them to 12v) and had to drill out the screws (same screws as generator) and install new screws. The bevel on the screw is at a different angle than the bevel in the starter or generator case (~1) so they are basically an interference fit and just about impossible to remove without destroying the screw anyway. Once you drill the head off you can remove the threaded part by hand.

I broke two Snap-On bits using an Impact Driver with no joy. Much cheaper to replace the screws.

'55 Ford Ranchwagon
And once again that is just my 1 worth.
