Jordan;

What type information are you looking for and for what model of Delco-Light Generator. Delco-Light made in excess of 80 different models from 1916 to 1947.

I have a limited supply of manuals and information I can copy for you at a modest cost. I also have 18 years experience "fighting" the electric "monsters".

I have some of that information stored in my cranial computer, but I was born with just 90 gigs of memory and I have now "stuffed" 90.5 gigs in there. If you will contact me I'll try to access it.

The link Peter gave you is a bit obsolete. Dr. Delco is no longer in business, he sold every thing he had to some one or a group, or so I'm told. Dr. Delco (Wayne Spahr) never had a computer. A friend of his posted that information on the web for him. I do know he was in the process of selling the whole works to some one or a group in Kettering Ohio. I'm pretty sure he sold every thing, but I don't know where it went.

I would sure like to get in touch with the folks that bought his museum. If any one has any information on this, would you please contact me.

Hi Don,

We don't exactly know the model # of the unit. But it is 850 watt 32 volt D.C. A meter that we pulled off of the unit says dominion Light Battery gauge on it.

Hope this helps

Jordan
