'62 Unimog 404
After a very short wheeling trip last weekend, about 100 feet after I engaged four wheel drive, my generator died in a cloud of smoke. I took the generator out and apart last night. Most of what I see looks like damage from the smoke (and has that really nice acrid electrical smell) but maybe this bare wire has something to do with it? There are more pictures and details here. I am not concerned about repairing this generator since I have a 24v alternator and a spare generator that I can swap in. But I would like to figure out what caused this and if the culprit was external to the generator, fix that before I fry something else. Any thoughts?
