Default Continental F-163

I would like to know the horsepower or torque available from this engine at 1800 rpm. I havent been able to fine a page with this rating, or for a ford 300 ind. engine. I would like to replace my y-112 on a 20k generator with the f-163 and also dont know the SAE bellhousing size of it.

For the Ford 300 six industrial engine, MOTOR lists it as from 226 ft pounds torque to 272 ft pounds @ 1800 which calculates out to 58 to 70 kW. The lower value they call "light duty" 1 bbl carb and the higher value is "heavy duty" 1bbl. The years were 1973 and 1974. I have a pump with the 300 six on it and I will see what the SAE bellhousing is tomorrow. The SAE bellhousing will be a separate piece made to fit the Ford engines
http://wahiduddin.net/calc/cf.htm is a calculator for hp and 0.75 x hp =kW

Ford 240 and 300 industrial engines list bellhousing as SAE 3 or 4, maybe there is a break between the two or some overlap. My pump has a non standard bellhousing and an adapter plate, so that was no help

I have seen generator sets from 50kw on a 240 Ford industrial engine to a 30kw on the 300.
