VITA, a government agency, put out a booklet on making a wind generator with car parts. They used the rear axle with one brake bolted locked and a large v-belt on the shaft where it came out of the differential. They made a fan wheel that was like 10 ft. diameter on the other brake drum and a large tail vane on the locked end to steer it into the wind.
