6 Volt Generator/ Hyd. Pump ID

Well, im more than embarrassed. I thought this came out of a skyliner some years back but after some research today it turns out that they were all electric. Which means it has to be quite abit older. Ive built a dozen or so Carson tops over the years so it had to come from one of those projects. I need to find out this came out of so I
can find it a new home. Any ideas where to start my research? The tag reads Auto-lite, MBL4003
10A Toledo Ohio. Thanks

Doc here,

Does it have a US patent number on it?

You can do a google search by patent number to find out info on it.

No it dosnt. For the life of me I cant remember where it came from. The oldest car Ive had in here was a 22 buick, thats to old for this thing. Im sure this is a 30's or newer pump. stamped in the pump housing it says--- WITH WINDOWS OPEN AND SEAT BACK, FILL TO LINE WITH FACTORY SPECIFIED BRAKEFLUID, CAUTION DO NOT HILL WITH MINERAL OIL. below that ther is a diamond with the letters OURA in it. No other markings on it. It seems with the seat position and window position this might have operated all that stuff. what car used an autolite pump to controll all those things. was auto-lite Ford back in the day, or did Caddy and everybody else use Auto-lite also?

Just looking at the pic, I think that's a motor, not a generator. I would think that because of that flat strap is going to a big terminal??? ..like maybe the strap went to a soleniod?

Plus it's got a tin cover over the brushes, and "most" generators would be open? Plus there is no drive pulley!

Pretty sure all gm cars would use their Delco products.

So at risk of being totally wrong about everything, I'd guess it's a remote mounted pump. Late 40s to late 50s....most likely a Ford-Merc-etc. I don't recall what Mopars used for a brand.

Good thinking! I will start focusing in that direction Thanks. Bob
