Does it say how many watts it is rated at? There i a single cylinder genset called a "chore-horse" that goes on the M3A1 Scout Car with some radio sets. Can you post any pictures? I have a drawing with it living under the radio cabinet and a drawing that shows it stowed on the out side of the back armor panel.

Don't remember any Watt rating.
And does not look like the one in your picture.
The original tags are in place. One on the generator. 32VDC and 17.2 amps, with a lot of other intel and one on the Briggs & Stratton engine air shroud.
The engine looks like something that would be right at home on an antique reel type lawn mower. Horizontal shaft.
The generator is bolted directly to the accessory side of the crankcase.
Sorry. Never got into posting pictures.
I don't even own a cellphone.
I know. I'm weird but I like the peace & quiet and I don't have a stiff neck! 8)
