Default Small Buda diesel with Kato-Light genset?

Has anyone got info on a setup like this? Two cylinder Buda, about 10-15hp and generator possibly 4.5KW? Thanks!

Default Re: Small Buda diesel with Kato-Light genset?

I had a 4 cylinder, 40 HP Buda that came out of a Navy whale boat and I put it in a 27 Ft cabin cruiser. Allis-Chalmers bought out Buda in about 1951. They made a low head version that was 25 HP and a high head that was 40 HP. It weighed about 1000 Lbs and burned 1.1 gallons an hour wide open. They came with Excello Injection pumps but I had an after market Bosch pump. It used an electric grid for a pre-heater. good engines, but heavy. I could only get surplus parts in 1970. lots of luck now.
