Nice one. Looking forward to pictures, particularly interested in the Alco 'Lightweight' or Featherweight' engine.

heres the pics sorry for the slow delivery but anyway here goes

generator id plate

geny in a lovely slapped on dulux bright green shade Rolling Eyes this will have to go as just to modern looking for age and lack of love in the finish too

switch gear box all present and correct and  testing ok on my meter  

gauges are full of dirt and glass loose and diffecult to read so top repaired and bottom to be done next

after removal and a clean up and repairs were needed  starting to look the job again

wiring diagram

original colour is looking to be bronze green in colour ,so will be doing it back that colour as rust is just started under the red oxide and grey base coats
so as its tin and 77yrs old best save it before it goes all biblical "holey"Smile
