    Generator Question M 58 and M 61

    Difference please between the Model 58 and Model 61 generator?

    Can a Model 58 be run with dual point 62 Pan timer/distributor?

    They both use the same regulator.

    The generator has nothing to do with what ignition system you use.

    The end cap and armature are different. The 58 uses an armature where the cap end diameter fits a bushing in the cover which has an oil cup for lubrication. The 61 uses an armature where the end cap diameter fits the needle bearings in the cover. The armatures can be interchanged by altering the end diameters, turning one or sleeving the other.
