Default Tiny Tim battery charger

A friend of mine just acquired a Tiny Tim battery charger. It's a gasoline powered, electric start, 6 Volt battery charger. It's fairly old. Neat looking unit. Engine has exposed valve stems. Does anybody have any information on this unit? Owner's manual?
Thanks.

Sorry, I don't have a picture. It's not overhead valve. It has a Continental L65 engine. The generator is 6 volts and my understanding is that it acts as a low voltage magneto for the engine, keeps the starting battery charged, and provides power for 6 volt lights.

This is not the engine in question, but I have a picture of a very similar Tiny Tim posted at www.faculty.mcneese.edu/jbailey/tinytim.jpg

Interestingly that is my picture that I took of my Tiny Tim/Wards Charger. I must have posted it on here at one time.
