I think the 37 rheostat is the same as 38. If so, then the dash rheostat can be removable by pulling the knob off (straight) and then unscrewing the escutcheon from the front. You will see two indents running towards the center hole. Put a needle nose or similar tool in these indents and carefully t...

I have some photos of a generator rebuild here. They are very simple machines, as long as you don't need to mess with the field or armature windings.
Dave C pointed out that not all stainless steel is non-magnetic. There are stainless steels (ferretic or martensitic(?)) alloys that are magnetic, but they tend to be for specialized uses. A magnet is not a perfect test for SS, but it will work for trim pieces, boat pieces, etc. I hope I have not le...
