Nice. I wonder if that would bolt up to an L600 engine. Oh well. I'm a long, long ways from Michigan...

I love these old plants but even though Iím in Michigan, Marquette is faaar away. Itís less driving time for me to get to Baltimore or DC.

There are probably a lot of nifty old gensets tucked away in old cabins up in the upper peninsula up there. There is a lot of untouched wilderness up there with very remote cabins.

I would bet that there's a good chance that after you've taken that generator off the engine, that neither will be of any value...

The engine's set up for single-speed operation, with droop governance for it's indicated shaft speed.... it will not want to operate at any other speed... and you might find that it's substantially re-tuned for that operating speed...

And others could tell for certain... the crankshaft and flywheel setup may be specific to the generator.

For what other application are you in need of a Whiskey V4? there's plenty of V4 power units around...
