A fellow electrical rebuilder is having problems getting reliable information about the charging system on a 1936 Hendrickson. Is anyone here acquainted with someone or a group that would be well versed in Hendrickson?
Thanks,
Alan

Hendrickson is a component truck builder much like Brockway was, meaning they purchased various components and assembled them into a truck (with some exceptions of course). That being said, We would need to know what components are in the charging system, for example Delco Remy generator and regulator, 6V or 12V, positive or negative ground. We would be glad to help, we just need more information.

Those OEM specs are exactly what we are trying to find. At present the truck is equipped with a 6v Delco generator with an obviously non-original regulator. There is no telling to what extent the charging system has been changed or modified since manufacture, but the goal is to restore to original, not just get it operational.
Thanks,
Alan

Alan - thanks for clarifying what information is needed. You might try the discussion board on the ATHS website. http://www.aths.org/

I wasn't aware of the ATHS discussion board. Thanks so much for the tip!
