Well I tried to post some more pics but they seem to have got lost in the ether. Let's try again and see what happens.

I have to admit that the Petter was rebuilt by an old boy in Staffordshire who does a lot of stationary engines. It did win a gold award last year though. I am currently restoring the B&S generator and the JAP 2A and then I will be building a tank system for the Lister pump and some novelty electrics for the Briggs genny. I am still not sure of the output of the generator yet as it is American and possibly 115v. I believe that it is a Pioneer generator from Climax Engineering but it has no markings on it, so if anyone knows about these please let me know. I will also be looking for some equipment to run the others under load. I have a couple of 12v dynamos for the smaller engines and may use these but need something bigger for the Petter and the ZZ's. Maybe another pump but I am always after interesting items. Wink

You need to have a word with Jay he's the forum member that is interested in generators.

The Briggs & Stratton ZZ (one of them) has now gone and the chap also bought the B&S generator whilst he was here. However, I now have another ZZ to play with, thanks to Kev who sourced it for me, and a Villiers Mk 15.
