This might belong in the "other power equipment" forum but since I HOPE to put this engine on a small tractor I'm posting it up here. I did some trading around with some GT's and parts and ended up with this this Yanmar diesel generator and have nothing in it. I got it and the tanks bottom was rotted out, the fuel filter and pump was NASTY. I cleaned the pump, injector and lines, threw some fuel in a spare tank and here she is:

From what I have found it's something like 6hp. It is the engine that the Chinese clones are based on. Like this: http://www.ebay.com/...=item27bcdc0f2f

 

PS: I realize just how country I sound when I say "Yayenmaar".

Those are the real deal and are what the clones were made from. The Chinese "borrowed" the design from Yanmar. It should be a good engine. I wonder what type of crank shaft it has. If that's a 1 bearing gen. head then it's likely a tapered shaft.

I checked and yes, the tag says 3600 RPM... I haven't researched how to convert it from constant speed to a throttle cable control.

 

Those are the real deal and are what the clones were made from. The Chinese "borrowed" the design from Yanmar. It should be a good engine. I wonder what type of crank shaft it has. If that's a 1 bearing gen. head then it's likely a tapered shaft. 

The last picture above shows the shaft between the engine and the gen head. It appears to be a straight shaft on both the engine and the generator with a collar between them. One of these days when I get my other projects out of the way I split these two apart and check it out....

 

Until then, I've got a backup generator. One that should be really easy on fuel!

You got it, may be in mass but i am from southern Ohio.

You would be looking for a variable speed set up, contacting Yanmar or looking on ebay should yeild something, my Yanmar i converted to variable speed for use on mower.

As a gen set they are long run and durable. Run it wide open and use multi grade crank case oil, i use Kabota oil.

Buried in shed, winterized, in Williamsburg, would have to dig it out, still very sick right now.

Here are some shots of two kinds, the older one with the lever and the newer sliding one.

The half moon siding one had a throttle cable holder and lock on the back of the hinged slider set up, perfet for the mower, it works like any throttle set up using a spring to the governor rod.

Looking for more photos of the convertion and parts no kit.

Forgive me, still feeling bad.

 

Forgot the photos , bottom two are the older hand throttle one:

Nice find on the engine. 

The link below is for the owners and parts manual. Looks to be down loadable. 

http://www.masterpar.../100851-01B.pdf

 

Graingers should have been the distributor of Dayton products. Parts for the gen. set are 

probably still available. 

 

Have fun with your diesel. :thumbs:
