I got lucky, and found this old girl on the local cl for a really good price.. which doesn't happen often here..

Should say winpower generator

I have looked and looked and can not find anything that resembles it..

Any help or tips would be greatly appreciated as I would love to be able to find parts..

I got it running after changing all the fluids and filters

Has a Simms injection pump. No name at all on the engine, just a few numbers

Thanks, Billy. I was thinking it resembled 1/2 of a Fordson Major engine...

Another choice it could be a Perkins. Another rare chance it could be a Gardner but the starter looks wrong. I have only seen two Gardner engines in the states. I would guess Dorset or Perkins.:shrug:

The old house was in Granada hills in the San Fernando valley so very close to the fires but all we would of got was smoke..

I looked up dorset and cannot find any 2 cylinder versions just 4..
Will look up gardner.. I thought perkins because of the fuel filter but no luck finding one like it.

The motorcycle is a Honda 74 I think.. I made a electric box under the seat and the seat mount for a buddy

Any Perkins I have seen uses a CAV pump, I an trying to think what engines uses a Simms pump besides Ford.

Does the two cylinder fires evenly or does it fire both cylinders during the same revolution of the crank and none of them fires the next revolution like a two cylinder John Deere?

There was a generator like this listed in upstate NY last summer for around $800. I was tempted to drive the three hours to look at it, but I wasn't sure what the engine was. It did not look like anything I had seen before. Let us know how that Albin runs and works out.

Its runs great, but someone hooked some wires up wrong and I'm getting a.c voltage at the battery, need to dig around in the generator and fix it before running it for more than a minute
