"all the gas cars on the road have a 1kW+ alternator onboard, why can't we?"
This one was modified to generate at 10 MPH and put out 30 Amps , it is fitted to a Stanley condenser steam car.
Here are some photos of another conversion I did for a 30 HP 1910 Stanley rear-end, making the patterns for the casting was a little challenge, but it all worked out. I fitted it with O rings for the connections to the rear end hubs.
I used 18 gauge making my Stanley hood.
16 gauge is .0625
18 gauge is .0500
20 gauge is .0375

We have just been sent these Ottoway Burner Drawings, courtesy of John Liming. The Ottoway burner is a simple, yet effective replacement steam car burner, most commonly used in early tiller-steered steam cars.
Thanks so much for all the help with the hubcap. After enjoying an awesome day at Brent’s foundry, I took the suggestion to machine the thing rather than try and cast it.
Brent’s brother made the suggestion to turn the thread in reverse. That worked out great. Putting it on the buffer afterwards made it look a lot more like the casting as well.
