Aramature is the rotating part. Field is the two coils attached to the generator frame.

And if this is a flathead, it's a 45 cu. in. engine, not a Panhead.

Check with Waugh HD in Orange, VA, they are very friendly folks, & They have one on display in the showroom. Should be able to help you with all sorts of info on your bike.

So how 'bout some pics?

Don't think they put the Panhead in the servicars (assuming it's a servicar). Had flatheads all the way up to 1973.
