Default Milwaukee/Continental Generator - 1950's Era

Any info available for this old Milwaukee generator with Continental AU 8.5 engine? My dad purchased this in the early 1950's along with two Mall electric chainsaws for a construction job. It was never used again after that job when the generator governor cap was broken and he had difficulty finding repair parts. I rediscovered it a couple of years ago when cleaning out a storage building after his passing. As seen in the pictures some pieces were lost or cannibalized over the years. I have recently retired and now hope to restore it to operating condition. I have searched the web for parts, history, and related info with no success. I will appreciate any information or guidance.
