A fellow at work gave this to me.He said it was on his grandfather's farm . Has compression , no spark  ,I had a tingle with my fingers but now nothing after cleaning the points . I'll get a new set of points and condenser . There was some parts of lettering on the generator ,,,, until I cleaned it :wallbanging: :wallbanging:  Motor is a B&S 8FB Type 108557 Serial 680461

Not  sure who made it any ideas ?

Looks too short to be a Pincor.

I thought that it does look like a Pincor. One time, I saw one that was tiny . It was only about 1000 watts. You do need to do something about the rain catcher muffler. Good Luck, Rick

I was at the Jacktown show over the weekend and there was a generator there like mine ( I will  load pictures of his tonight ) if you look at mine where the electric box is there are 2 wires hanging out ,,on his  there are studs with wing nuts . I asked if it was for 12 volts , he replied if you had a battery hook to them there was a HD push button on his box to start ! He had a battery there , turned it over by hand until it went past compression pushed the button and it fires right off !!!

Awesome, that answers 2 questions.

Now, does it require the battery or run or is it just start assist?

Pretty sure  his uses a battery to start or just use a rope .BUT  without a name tag I'm not even sure the one I have is set to crank with a battery now that I'm thinking.  I have an old Homelite that does 1500w a/c and has terminals for 40 amp dc . I'll have to go online with the numbers from his ID plate and maybe find a wiring diagram to compare with mine . Or just hook a battery to those leads and cross my fingers lol

I got the engine running the other day , the point were worn so bad that my flexable point files and steel point files wouldn't get them shinny , had to use a regular metal file then dress with the point file , I'll get a new set if things start working but right now it doesn't charge , I tried applying 12v to those connection to excite the dc part of the generator but not much , there is a trace of voltage   .02 . I'm going to try taking the covers off to see if any of the brushes  are worn , sticking ect . Still can't find anything for this but did find some on Windco generator so maybe they wire them the same ?  The one wire sticking out of the metal box id marked " FLD "  so am I correct in thinking this is the " Field " wire ?  And what would it be doing loose like that ?

 

The worse part is now have a engine that starts on the first pull and seems to run good ,and I'm guessing it has a tapered crankshaft on the generator end ? :wallbanging:

"Comes complete with winding to charge 6 volt battery" :rolling:

Man, that is from back in the day, isn't it?

Hope you get it charging, congrats on getting it running.

I took the generator to Jacktown last weekend to see if anyone would know what I needed to get the generator to work . The older fellow was there again who had the one like it at the last show came up to me and asked if I wanted to sell it . So it was his for $10 bucks , took it over to his display . I asked him how many he had , it was hard to understand him  I think he had a stroke because of his speech ,,but it sounded like 200 !!!!  Now he has 201 lol
