Default Pincor Genny SS2856 1942 Manufacture - Pioneer Gen-E-Motor

Just picked up a couple of these on ebay, and got them home last week after a friend collected them from Wales for me.

Initially we thought that these would be BSA generators like we already have (5 of them!) but after finding a label on the side, we can advise as follows:

"Pincor BD-12A"
"Power Unit DC/AC 250Watts No1 (American) 1A"
"Pincor Specification SS2856 1942"

These are indeed dual-voltage 240V AC and 12V battery starting/charging.

A previous thread here:

http://www.smokstak.com/forum/showthread.php?t=15847

is another owner that found one of these units, but no responses at that time.

One of our two is complete, the other is missing some parts. The unusual feature of these is the additional external flywheel which is bolted to the existing cooling fan/flywheel.

Pictures below.

More information turned up today, in the form of an operating manual and spares list, courtesy of a good engine friend.

This is for the Pioneer gen-E-Motor BD-12-A, which is the same designation as our unit.

The generator was originally made to run Wireless set No 12.

I'll get the manual scanned and up on the website once I have confirmed it is OK with our friends.

Peter
