I have an AGM 2572 that I got at a thrift store a while back, its by no means perfect but its a good runner. The needle on the cleaning rod is broke off and I am wondering if it would be worth it to try and find a new generator, run it as is, or if I should retire it to the shelf since the founts on these have a habit of cracking. What I want to do with it is make it my main user and take it on vacation with me for a week or two, I'm wondering if that is a good idea or not because of the fount issues. I'm running it with a good 200A cap because the seal in its cap is bad, I already have a new seal on the way. It also is using an old Coleman globe that is similar to another globe I have from the 40s, unfortunately it has a crack in it. Also how do you date these AGMs?

There are so many of those with stress cracked founts that you should be able to find spare upper parts easily. Post a WTB ad in the classifieds.

I had it in my head a Coleman 220 generator could be made to work? Maybe a pricker rod modification? Might be worth a search on here..I may be thinking of something else...

I wish a 220 generator would work, here is a spare 220 size generator I have, it is a different length and the cleaning rod has a different end on it. Click image for larger version - Name: 20200710_153727 edited (wecompress.com).jpg, Views: 22, Size: 270.39 KB

Maybe with some fabri-cobbleing I could make something that would work but I wouldn't know where to start

If the 220 gen will go in far enough to seal up to the air tube I would think it would work. Again I believe you will have to trim or shorten the way the pricker attaches to the eccentric block also
