I just went and got this. Very nice guy who understands the hobby. He collects outboard motors from pre 1960. We had a good visit.

 

I hope this will match with my 725. Good Luck, Rick

Not even the manual for this one. It is mounted to a steel dolley where it was direct connected to an engine. I will try to find what the missing pieces look like.

 

I have a different shaped 2kw that goes to my choretrak 2 wheeler. Good Luck, Rick

Dang....thats dirt cheap! Ive been watching for any old genhead to paint up and make a blue genny for my Homelite and NOTHIN has been that inexpensive.

The Pincors never had a factory Simplicity application that I am aware of, but the Generacs that did have an awful simple mounting setup.

You may be best suited making a base and tension rod like that of the early style (1500w) generator setup vs the late style which would require much more fabrication.

Any pics of the Choretrak/generator?

I agree with Josh, the early version mounting bracket is simpler. Josh, if you could, you should upload the diagram of the set up, I do not have any pictures or anything scanned that could help.

 

Rick, I had several pictures of homebuilt set ups for the early Landlords but the comp virus forced me to delete everything. Most everything was found on the open net so it is searchable. If you are thinking of building a electrical enclosure with gauges I would like to guild you through it, I have built several for gensets and testing applications.

Nice looking generator at a great price. With a 2Kw rating you may be able to lower the speed of your engine and adjust the pulley ratio to get the correct generator speed/frequency. By doing that you will reduce noise, fuel consumption and wear and tear on your tractor engine and still be able to get the full 2kw of power, which only requires about 4hp maximum. You do need some way to measure and set the speed though. Some of the high efficiency generator setups I've seen run the engine at around 2500rpms to get maximum fuel economy.

Attached are the early Generac parts diagram for Simp/AC, and here is a pic of it mounted up.

I'd suggest running it off the more standard, LH side of the BGB.  Front mount would probably be really simple too.  Seems to be what all the other GT makers did.

Its buried in the back of the basement. I'll try to dig it out in the future and post some pics. I even have the legs that attach to the front of the two wheeler to hold it, somewhere. Good Luck, Rick

I thought that this was a Simplicity attachment. I know that I have seen one of these as an attachment for an old GT.

Thanks for the pics guys. I think a gen head could be mounted to most brands of tractors with a belt drive PTO front or rear. It would be a real handy thing to have for backup power or for a portable generator that you could take to remote locations.

just make sure you mount it to the front pto so it works when your bgb fails :poke:
