Default Greetings and a question

Greetings! I'm from Oklahoma City, don't have any antique engines or generators. Have some antique machine tools though. I've been working on the history of the early airway beacons and CAA airfields and have identified Kohler 1.5kW light plants were used to power some airway beacons. I would be interested to know what other gen-set might have powered either beacons or airfield lighting. I have a "mystery" head gasket that I need to identify also - anyone have an old Victor catalog?

It's a Victor 1512. Two pistons. I am assuming that it is from a 4 cylinder light plant from the 1930's. Also a Victor 14042 Intake Manifold gasket? Same engine?

Oh, sorry, I didn't read the part about posting technical questions in another board. Will post in another board.
