Default Wisconsin THD 1962 Rescue from Scrap yard

I recently purchased a 1962 Wisconsin THD engine with a 3" Gorman Rupp water pump from a scrap yard for $200.00. Took it home removed the pump, connected it to an 18000 watt pto generator. Had to convert it from propane to gas. Found a used carburetor on ebay and got it for a bid of $2.99. I am not joking! It was an original. Just bolted it on no cleaning and it fired right up, rust, dirt and blue smoke everywhere for the first 5 seconds and then it smoothed right out. The 17 Hp does not give the full 18,000 watts but around 10,000. Enought to run my lincoln 225 amp welder. Replaced all wiring, plugs, new battery and attached a 6 gallon marine fuel tank with a vacuum driven fuel pump of the intake manifold. Generator is an AG Tronic from the late 1970's early 1980's. Any info on the generator would be greatly appreciated.
