I picked this up as a free, take it if you want it thing, and know nothing about it. Any help appreciated!! Hope these links work.

Lets see if this works, if not I will get some pics and get them posted. Sorry, me and computers sometimes don't get along to well.

It is 2 stroke and the engine is made by Jacobson if any of that helps.

The appearance, voltage ratings and vintage suggest that it may have been designed to power a military radio set.

So I guess the next question is, are they worth anything? I really don't mean a dollar figure but any uses for it?

It is probably about as useful as my 2 cylinder, 2 stroke Clinton. I keep it around to look at- its original application was ground power for aircraft radar, etc.

Okay, I guess it will go on the back burner for now. I have several Onans and a Witte to finish first.

If anyone needs a part that I have for this generator, please let my know. I have decided to not repair it as I have may others to work on. The part would be free just pay actual postage. If it helps you out then cool by me.
I know we are not allowed to post for sale items here but these are FREE!
