I am new to this group. New to this type of engine too.
I I have been playing with the idea of making a generator out of a 9hp Witte I bought last year.
I wonder if I am building some thing that will work or not? I have recently found and purchased an 8Kw 1800rpm generator head and I and hoping that I can make a usable power supply out of the combination.
Can any body give me a little insight on what I am doing?
I have been told that the Witte might not be big enough to pull the 8 kW under full load, but should supply good power until it stalls nobody is quite sure what load the would be.
My thinking is to have a toy I can play with that will serve a purpose to help the wife understand it more and the when the power is out it can serve a purpose.
I have yet to get the head home but hope to have it here in the coming week.
I have finished the cart I was building in the pictures. Can't seam to find the picutres I took of it finished.
Do you think I am building a project that will work?
