Default Unusual Natural Gas Generator...Not Onan

check this oldie. Looks like a Hall Scott engine. Guy says it fired up last year....How does it run with the magneto apart?
Anyhow, it's cheap?

If you are interested, call the seller and tell him you are interested and want to look at it and see it run like it says in the ad. Sometimes the seller will admit it does not run and offer to reduce the price. Sometimes they will get defensive and start blustering about something or other. Then you know the seller is a "character" and you are just wasting your time looking at it.

Definitely not a Hall-Scott. That looks like a Continental Red Seal 572cubic inch engine about 150hp @ 2200rpm.
