The Wisconsin VH4D is rated 17.2hp at 1400rpm, 22.5hp @1800rpm, 26.5hp @ 2200rpm, and 30hp @ 2800rpm. They are a real workhorse of an engine, and were very popular in their heyday.

Yeah, I was thinking it looks ideally suited to direct driving the generator at 1800 rpm. A little reserve HP so the throttle doesn't have to be wide open when welding at the maximum current setting.
