Default Stuart Turner P4 generator

Just picked this up, it's a 1hp at 1000rpm, 500 watt 50-70 volt.
from about 1937, The engine is a 3 port 2 stroke and the set is made be Stuart Turner of Henley-on-Thames England.

Some pictures:-





After a quick wipe down.



I look forward to getting this one running!

Cheers Steve

I like it Steve, I must dig my P55 out and give it a run , mine has a starting handle like yours, I tend to lean back when using it after having a near miss when it flew off !
