washers missing!
« on: July 12, 2020, 10:53:50 AM »
Does anyone know why there arn't any washers on the eight bolts that keep the coils into the  main case of a brush 8.25kva generater?
I stripped out the coils to clean the surface rust from the inside of the case, as I didn't want any flaking off once the generator warms up causing problems in the windings and noticed that none of the bolts have washers on them. Just wondering if there's a specific reason for this or has it been an omission from the build. Your thoughts would be welcome
many thanks
Barry

I can't speak to the washers, but perhaps use some reusable  loc-tite on the threads to keep things from backing off
