Default Power Products Model 150 Engine

Hi,
I recently picked up this little engine at an auction and I was wondering if anyone had any info on this Power Products Model 150 engine. I am working on gathering parts to build an old motorized bike and I already own 2 AH-47 engines, but I'd like so find out the specs on this engine before I choose what engine to use. If this one has more power I'd like to use this, plus I like the looks of the cooling fins on the head more then the AH-47's.

Thanks!

Probably only puts out 1 to 11/2 HP. Looks like a neat little set up as is! What is the output of the generater? It looks like someone, at one time, mounted a Fairbanks recoil starter on the engine. It originally had a wrap a rope starter on it, as evidensed by the arrow on the housing. The fairbanks starter had a sharp pawl that dug into the interior of the aluminum starter cup that you have on your engine. it was sorta crude, but made starting the engine less of a chore, as it was with the wrap a rope type.

Ya, that was my other thought, This motor would be kind of fun to restore and leave as-is on its own stand. I think its a 24volt Generator, probably used to charge tractor batteries or something.

Speaking of the stand..... Is that an oil filter boss clearly evident in one of the photos? It looks like a place for an automotive type oil filter to spin on. Obviously not for this engine but whatever used that stand before.

That 'oil filter mount' is connected to the engine muffler. It may be what's left of a can type muffler, similar to those used by Coldwell and Jacobsen. They were very quiet. The stock muffler on the power products engine, is loud.
