Detroit Diesel Elec Power DDC25U with Diesel Perkins Engine Manuals?

I think I am going to pick up a 3 cylinder Perkins Powered Detroit Diesel Electric Power Generator. I pulled the reconnect panel cover to verify the gen head is definately a 12 wire. I want to reconfigure it for single phase instead of the 3 phase it is currently wired for. Does anyone have any information on these gensets? It was purchased by a local Fire Dept in 1988.
According to the information I can find if I have the genhead reconfigured for single phase it would have to be derated from 25kw to 16.5 kw.

The unit I'm looking at has about 500 hours on it. I am going to use it for residential power backup. After the last storm set that ran through Virginia and Maryland, 6 days without power can suck it...

It looks to have a Newage Genhead based on pulling open the reconnect panel.

Anyone have any more information about these units or manuals that would be awesome or a direction I should look?

I have a couple pictures if this helps anyone identify the unit.

Click the pictures for more resolution.

Thank you guys for any information you could provide in advance.

The only diagram I could find inside the reconnect panel seems to explain the AVR panel.

Says "made in the United Kingdom " on the tag.
The data plate is hard to see at the angle you took the photos from.
Looks like 208/120 with a 0.8 power factor in 3 phase.
Does it say 23.?? kw
RPM ????

25.04kw(31.3 kVA) is what it says in 3 phase at 1800 RPM. if you click the photo's it takes you to imgur and click on it again and it will give you the fullsize image to scroll on. I just didn't want to post a completely obnoxious sized image in the thread.
