I was looking in a local thrift store and found this 5HP B&S pincor alternator .  I thought it was sort of cool so I was researching a bit - perhaps a 1968 model or so . I also found the service manual here on this site from a link in a search I did.

They do online bids and it ends in an hour or so . I am hoping no one else is too interested . I have it now for $16 .

I just want to play with it :D  . Would make a good 'basement' winter project . And would be nice to have around for emergencies .

Seems like a classic.

It is worth $42, but at 2000 watts, it is small electrically-wise.

Maybe 16 amps max.

Neat little genny. I think it would be great to have a small one for the just in case moments.

Ya - it says 20amps on it , it is small , but damn I am lucky when buying old stuff , I checked it out today when I got off work - everything looked good- oil - Air cleaner - gas tank dry but clean - tickle tested really good - ouch ! So I put gas in it and - 2nd pull it was running. :rocker2:  :big_hug: I love it ! It will run power tools so the alternator works good too! What a deal.

 

These Briggs motors are something else !  Oh and it came with the 350lb dolly under it .

Looks like a great dolly as well!  You did very good!  That gen will be very handy for smaller jobs as it's easy to toss in the back of a truck or on rack of a 4 wheeler/etc.

While searching around last night I saw a video of one of these - a guy in NY had it in a shed for 8 years . After hurricane Sandy he pulled it out gassed it up and it was a life saver. If we get a bad winter storm or ice knocks out power here it will sure be nice to have this thing around . You never know when a back up might be handy as well as portable power for those campouts or tractor shows.

Just don't run a computer off it, as older gensets have too many spikes and can hurt delicate equipment.  You can run such equipment off a 12V battery with an inverter, then keep the battery charged off the generator.  If you have a battery backup hooked to your computer, then you're ok.

Thanks - I better remember that- I do have an inverter set-up . but I had to put the battery in my jeep so I need to get another one . I was looking into doing some solar panels and a bank of 12s in the garage . That starts to get expensive though.
