Default 1945 Onan PE-95G Signal corp genset

After over a year of plugging away, the 1945 PE-95 is pretty much done.
I made a video of it running in a completed form at 1800rpm today. It sounds good, and generates fine.
I did notice that I have the amp guage wired backwards. These are PE95K electric guages in the control panel, and I had to figure out how to adapt them. I did not want an oil hose going through the electrics like the original did.
The temp guage is working wrong too, as the sending unit is new and is supposed to be 12 volts. I removed the resistor so it sees 12V. THe oil guage works fine on 12V.
This unit got:
New rings
4 new exhaust valves
All new gaskets
NOS brushes and NOS brush springs
NOS start stop button switch
NOS ballast resistor
Fixed all the solenoids in control panel
New oil and temp sending units
New reproduction battery cables
New carb kit
New oil hoses
New belts
New rad hoses
Tin work fixed and painted in correct OD.

That is one great job!!! There was a lot of work that went into getting this unit up and running. Not just that, but cleaning and painting as well.
Just wondering, since it has a willys engine, does it have four wheel drive?
