Does anyone recognize this generator setup for Radio Jeep?

Does anyone recognize this generator setup for Radio Jeep?
I have been searching for a 12v 55amp MZ Radio Jeep generator and mount for between front seats, but I have had SO MANY scams that I am leery about every e-mail I get. If this is pictures of somebody else's generator please let me know.
I will be VERY grateful!

That is a generator for between the seats but without the data plate at the top or a look at the generator/regulator you cannot tell if it is 12v or 24 volt.

It also has a wire showing so we do not know if it is all there.

Here is mine with a 24 volt generator with an off white tag. Below that is Steve's 12 volts with a green tag.

None of mine either.

I haven't had anyone try to scam me but I had people crawfish on deals looking for more money.

Well is looks like I have found most of mine. It is missing the regulator and a suppressor, so I will still have quite a search on my hands but I'm getting there.

Would some one have an Idea on the weight and possibly overall dimensions L X W X H. For shipping reasons. This has been quite a search and I wont feel completely positive that I really have one until it is in my grubby little fists.

THANK YOU EVERYONE for all your help,

Daryl

Hi Daryl,

Congratulations on locating a radio Jeep generator! Hopefully you'll be sharing more photos once it arrives at your place! The regulators are relatively easy to source and some of the other parts can be found or reproduced. I spent around $400 to ship my TCS radio set on a pallet and all together weighed nearly as much. Though your shipping will vary depending on your location. I recommend palletising and using a freight company.

For some reason your photos are not showing on my end. I'd love to see your new generator.

I get the impression it is from a later CJV-35 or a field and-on kit. We will see when I can get it here.

There try these pictures....

I just shipped one not to long ago. Fastenal had the best price for shipping. If you and the seller have one close by it is a good way to ship one. I crated it and the time before that I shipped one it weighed a few pounds to much for FedEx supposedly.

My "new" Aux. Gen. Kit finally arrived over the weekend. It was just as pictured. Here is a couple close-ups of the data plates.

From Lloyd White's books Vol. 2, the table on page 550; It appears to be from Navy contract NObsr-29091 field kit maybe used with deep water fording kits on any of the Willys models.

Thanks to everyone for your help finding this one for me.

Why was the serial number photoshopped out?

Photo shopped just for me. All of the scams that I was getting was using photos from this forum. That was the easy to tell it was a scam, they were using your and others photo saying they had this for sale. When I would ask for more information and additional photos they came directly here for more pictures. Kind of stupid on my part, but whatever.

I'd be interested in finding out who these characters are that used mine and others photos to try and sell you a generator. I take pleasure in outing dirt bags.
