    M38A1 cam gear -no timing marks!

    Help! In my haste to disassemble the engine on my '67 CDN2 M38A1 I didn't check to see if both gears had marks on them. Crank does but the fiber cam gear does not. Is there a way to determine the proper alignment by counting teeth from the centerline of the keyway, or some other little trick...

    WWII Backpack Generator

    I picked up a world war two backpack generator over the weekend, GN-51-A, 300 watt A/C 120-240v powered by a 2 cycle Jacobsen engine, I know that this type is relatively common, so why can't I find any info on it? If anyone knows more about them, please let me know, manuals would be great, also...

    solid state vibrator replacement

    I was wondering if anyone knows of a simple circuit that would replace the 24 volt vibrator in the GRC family of radios. I tried finding a schematic through a google search and got really discouraged. You'd think something as simple as a transformer driver would be easy to find the plans for...

    Cold Start Aid

    I picked up a unit at an auction two weeks ago and was hoping someone has info on it. The only tag on it says Cold Start Aid made by the perfection stove company. It contains a 28 volt Homelite generator, gas fired heater and space for 4 , I presume 6 volt batteries. Also knife switches to...

    older generator magneto

    I picked up a generator today at an auction. It's a 5KW with a continental Y69 water cooled 4cyl engine. Unfortunately I can't find a tag with an M- number on it, only FSN-6115-628-1243. The engine is missing the Mag, and I was hoping someone might know what model and make of magneto it...

    10 KW genset regulator

    I'm in the process of getting my generator back among the living and among other things cannot get it to generate. If I press the field flash switch I can hear the engine bog down, but as soon as I let off, the engine bounces right back ,and no voltage. Would this be likely caused by a bad...
