That big sheave has me thinkin' that mebbie someone made this into some sort of APU... or was slinging a big DC generator for either welding or engine-starting... or something like that... mebbie they converted it to a power unit for a rock crusher?

Story goes that the engine was "Used to drive a generator to power lights on a construction site". Of course that could have been when it still had it's original generator. Or, based on everything else in the ad vs what I have found, it may not be true at all lol.

Either way, if it runs again, it should be a useful thing to have around.
