Looks like a charging set for a 32v home lighting plant. Do you have the switchboard panel that came with it? Probably has a couple of knife switches, fuses, volt and amp meters, a reverse current relay and a charge control rheostat. If so, the terminals will be identified on gen and board, and it's a matter of connecting like with like, plus line and battery connections.
You will need some sort of a control board with at least a reverse current relay (cutout) and a rheostat to operate it, but a board from another 32v plant could be adapted. A heavy diode can replace a reverse current relay if needed. Someone else here may have info to identify connections on your genny. Do the terminals have any markings? Quite a tidy looking unit you have.
32v gear is a bit thin on the ground now, but bulbs I think are still available at a price. You can charge three 12v batts in series (36v) OK, and run groups of 12v lamps, halogen downlights etc, in series, or any other incandescent 12v lamps of equal wattage. Sounds like a nice project. Combustor.

Unfortunatly no control panel came with it, if anyone has a pick of a control panel would be a good start. For the money i paid im more then happy with what i got.
as for the terminals they are marked 1 thru 6, as for 32volt stuff i am keeping an eye on a Pope washingmachine to start with but will be keeping an eye out.

Cheers

from left to right across the FRONT of the panel the terminals are 3 6 5 direct load batt common common common 2 4 1

Hope that helps some what I haven't had the set generating power but, I assume that because it sat for so long i may need the fields flashing to remagnitise them but as i dont know which terminals they are I haven't touched her for a while.
