Just a note, if you're going to load the engine be sure to put the screen back on the shroud as this is needed to get air flow past the vanes. Free running it is no problem without it.

Thx
Will do, I grabbed a screen from m the scrapyard.
I am missing one piece of tin on the back and the yard didnít have a spare. Shouldnít be hard to make something suitable. Iím not sure why Iím bothering but maybe it will make someone happy

I rebuilt one of those, years ago. Put new rods in it that used inserts, and new rings, etc. Put it on an air compressor tank that had a quincy on it. I used it for several years as I was racing and spent all money on the car.. Finally put an electric motor on the compressor. and sold the engine. It sure ran good, and was overkill for what the compressor needed but it was what I had. Mine was just a straight output shaft. That clutch assembly is probably worth as much as the engine.

yep, tried to save myself by selling the darn thing. I got issues. maybe it will be worth something to someone in the end. I have searched high and low around the home for something that needs a donor but I got nothing (unless I buy more rusty stuff=likely)

agree about the clutch/pto
not sure what they go for, I still plan to mount it on the motor and will hold off on cutting the shaft down. I will just make up an adapter plate.

Ok got the charging circuit up and running after a flywheel change and putting in the stator and various rectifiers, etc.
I am getting 34v AC off one wire and 22vDC off another, by the time it filters down it is 7-8vDC to the ammeter (2000 rpm.) Maybe this is a 6v system? Or bad rectifiers etc. this is the 3 unit system and it is hard to find anything about what I should see/read/test.
