Just a little video I put together to show her off a bit. This a military verson of the rugged little CH1 genset made by Johnson Motors (OMC) in Peterborough Ontario. 30 volt @ 10 amps which makes it good for 300 watts. I believe they use to bolt these to the fenders of jeeps to keep the batteries on the field radios of the day charged up. Kinda neet is the generator can be used to start the engine as showned in the video. Odd is the fact is was painted olive drab gloss??? It received the full treatment including new rings, valve job complete teardown and rebuild.



In the video you can see the adjustable current output from 0 to about 10 amps charging 2 12 volt car batteries hooked in series.
