It depends on how it was built. The more copper the more amps usually. Do you have a part number. I could try and look it up.

Like 43, not sure which " small " ginny " you are referring to.
We are talking maximum output ability. Most of the time, generators do not run at "Max.".
What I would call "small" would put out at least 30 amps maximum.
Goes up from there.
