Hey Mike, it looks very interesting. What lies under the metal cabinet? That might help.

Based on general dimensions and position of the radiator, one could START by guessing an Onan W2/W3, or a Kohler... typically the high-mounted radiator would be necessary for a thermosyphon cooled generator, but that doesn't mean it wouldn't be force-flow cooled.

The second item is most likely a water pump...

Yes that is Canadian Smart Turner pump I contacted the factory still in business and this 1939 pump went back to them. The generator was in a salvage yard and I could not get a clear picture of the engine it was a very old unit was once owned by the town .The engine was a single cylinder water cooled unit not sure if it is even still there .Thanks everyone for taking a look .Cheers Mike
