Bought this at Portland today. It's green and has odd items, wondered if it was army? Here's some pix. Note the odd oil fill cap, the points and plug wire not connected, thinking maybe a coil was on it? Two holes in upper shrould, maybe coil mount? The air cleaner is weird shaped aluminum thing. Did find one mount leg cut-off, not neat! The start/gen did run with battery on it, and junk blew out of the exhaust, but no real compression as it sets. Think wrong gas tank added. For $20, might be good parts machine, OR, maybe fix and run? Also big cap by cylinder under gas tank, Oil? or breather? Note HP is only 7.9 and 2800 rpm, not 3600. Why? Could this be a gen engine as noted by someone here?
