Congrats (again). I see a JC in the pictures. Not a welder or a 3600 rpm generator. Did you attach the correct pictures?

I think by the end of the year you will have almost every antique generator in your state safely stored in your garage(s).

Story with the welder is the last owner tuned it up and could not get any spark.. im going to clean it up remove the aftermarket propain adapter and put it all back together stock and sell it as is.. absolutely no interest in it as I have a Miller d400 diesel on a service truck that's retired

An interesting lot of gensets. I am curious about the Tecumseh-powered one. I am wondering what that reservoir-like container is near the gas regulator and also the purpose of the extended box around the muffler. I can understand that the box could be a type of heat shield but I noticed it extends around the top front of the engine.

Regarding those Beam gas regulators on the Tecumseh and on the welder, Beam is now part of Impco, so if they need a rebuild kit, an Impco dealer should be able to help you.

It needs an oil reservoir because it is a Tecumseh!

The side door (access to the carb and oil filter side). Any chance that's going to be the same as mine from the 80's?

Wonder how much it would cost to ship?
