    That is a good looking restoration.
    Hopefully mine can look as good one of these days.

    How does it weld?

    I'm looking for manufacturing date, manuals, wiring diagrams, in general, anything that is available.
    Well our friend Bill has tell you the first info you are looking for. About manuals I can send to you via e-mail the parts catalog of the engine ( I guess is like mine T F ) Wiring diagrams I haven't. All restoration of the generator was made for myself because I have other generator, but it is three pases motor. The components of two gens are the same. I have to tell you The restoration process has been so large ( 5 years ) because all pieces has desassembled one by one, screw by screw and I'm proud for the results. Of course it welds so terriffic. Soon I will upload a video clip showing how welds. By now there are a video showing the engine run and stop only www.youtube.com/watch?v=5xtwQ83LNro By the way the gas tank of mine was came in a cart, but I don't put in it because my workshop are so snmall and I decide put this gas tank from a wisconsin engine THD was find it in scrap yard

    Thanks Bill!

    I live in the Kansas City area, so it looks like it didn't travel too far from home.

    My uncle after getting out the Navy during WWII, started and ran an ornamental iron business. He may have purchased it new.

    Now on to getting it to run and weld. I pulled the head off last night as it didn't have any compression. Both exhaust valves were stuck open. A little penetrating oil and they freed right up. The cylinder bores look excellent. I put the head back on for now, I'll try to get a new head gasket.

    It has plenty of compression now, but no spark. I cleaned the points in the mag, but still nothing. Hopefully I don't have to have it re-magnetized.

    Next I'll tackle changing the oil and cleaning the carb, fuel filter and gas tank.

    I recently inherited the welder from my uncle who passed away.
    I finally went and picked it up today. It has been sitting in a shed for about 20 years.

    I'm looking for any info I can find on it. I read a post by someone on this board with a contact that may be able to provide some info.

    The information is as below.
