Default need help identifying?

I just recently came accross an old ONAN 2 cylinder liquid cooled generator,the fellow i got it from got it out of a boat but there was no paper work with it.I'm not even sure its an ONAN,its what he said it was,its heavier than a V-8 motor.The lad that owned the boat said it had power to run the electric water heater,the electric stove,4 burners and oven and anything else they had all at the same time.there are no numbers or anything to identify what it is or how big it is.It has 2 cylinders accross from each other with 2 water pumps athached,one went through the water heater in a coil to cool the engine and heat the water whitch was a neat ideal.the motor is not stuck so it would be repairable with a carb kit i'm hoping,i'm new here so soon as i figurer out how to post pictures i"ll post some,RAY

What you have is a MCCK with a closed cooling system.One pump runs the cooling for the block and the other runs the cooling for the heat exchanger.
