Default Gray throttler with Dean Homelight System

Looking to see if anyone had seen or has information on this set up. It's a early 1hp Gray with a Dean electric Dyno and board set up. The engine is set up to be throttler not hit miss, which is the first one I've seen. Let me know on thoughts and info....

Nice set up. Can you post some pictures of the mixer and gov set up? Don't forget about Coolspring this year! Lightplants there this June you know. Thanks for sharing!

Nice to see it all together and driving a dynamo. I'm glad no one tried to put it back hit and miss. Thanks for sharing.

Well it's in the shop now working on giving it a new paint job. Have to figure out what color green the engine needs to be and get the Dyno putting out power.

Very cool outfit! I was so close to making a move on it when Jon had it posted for sale. Dean Electric was in Elyria, Ohio, which is just a couple minutes from me, so would have been a cool local piece to have. Be sure to post photos when you have it all spruced up.

Will do for sure, need to get the correct rod in the engine but otherwise hopefully things will go easy and should make a nice display

I'm still looking for information and literature on this set up... Here's a link to a short YouTube clip before going to the first show with it.
