I did some probing and found out the wards airline charger has a a circuit configuration and the tiny tim charger was another name for the wards charger. From my understanding Western Auto also sold the same charger under another name Wizzard Light Plant.

Hello:

I am in the same pickle. no tags or ID info. One way to see what voltage it puts out besides the smoke test is to find the cutout relay and see what voltage across its coil will cause it to close starting with the lowest possibility, 6 volts in this case. It is probably lurking under the metal cover on the side. The cutout relay coil is connected across the output of the generator and pulls in when the generator voltages equals approacjes and exceeds the battery voltage. I did not know that they made a 24 volt plant. They also made a 32 volt device. I need to machine a part for the pesky pushbutton switch on top. Contact us if any questions. Cheers!

You could try starting it on 6 volts and disconnect the battery and see what it puts out fromm the battery terminal on the voltage regulator.
