RE: generator noise

<x-flowed>>Is that all the shims that were in it?? If so, that was the problems.
there are supposed to be about 6 shims in there. I would have to do some
checking on the exact number. It looks as if it were not completely
tight. The nut was tight against the hub, and not against the 2 halves.

Only two were inside one was outside.  I thought the whole point of
the shims was to remove them as the belt wears/stretches.

Yes but you remove them from the middle and put them on the outside of the pulley..
Thats basic pulley meltdown thats common with the aftermarket bug pulleys, for a t3
one it was probably just too loose from not enough shims and driven long enough to disintigrtde everything. The good news is you probably just need a new pulley and some more shims. I cant tell you how many pulley eaters ive had when it comes to bugs, but so far the t3 has been very good.
I have a generator question as well. What if, after a few brews 'someone' were to hook up 12 volts to the field connection of the generator. After I, i mean someone turned the key and realized the light didnt go out (and car didnt start), i fixed the wires but had blown up the generator + reg by driving it home that way. I had a spare of each and off I went. What damage did i cause to that gen, should a basic rebuilder be able to fix it, is it worthwhile or just save and get a new one for a spare? What should it cost to fix the damaged one? Noone i know has t3 parts so Im trying to accumulate spares for everything to get the car back on the road as fast as I can, should it break.
