    24VDC Generator Update

    I used xylene to soak the carb, pump, lines and tank which softened all the brown gasoline tar goop then blew everything out with air and now have it all reassembled and running smoothly. Didn't try MMO because I had none on hand but did have xylene and it worked well with no damage to...

    24VDC Generator Update

    I ordered a complete new control box from Army Surplus Warehouse and installed it as the price for new was about double what a reostat would have cost including shipping and I got all new control parts, wiring ect.

    24VDC Generator Update

    I was not able to see the numbers on the plate clearly( old glasses and eyes) but once I saw them after they were posted and enlarged on the monitor I searched and was not able to find any info.

    24VDC Generator Update

    Re: RE: 24VDC Generator Questions Yeah, burnishing usually does work but in this case it 's the reason I can't read the info, the plates are silk screened paint over unstamped aluminum and somebody has burnished the paint off so I'm kind of stuck. The only number I can see is the stamped...

    24VDC Generator Update

    My friend Ralph gave this set to me yesterday and I'd like to know what model it is, what TM goes with it and anything else you can tell me about it. The data plates are difficult to read and the fuel system is clogged with old crud from sitting for years with gas in the tank, pump and carb...
