I bought this recently. It is just a dynamo, but the engine info plate had
ignition timing details on the plate, so it might well be that it was part
of a "proper" generating set
The vendor indicated that it had come as part of a Lister D driven outfit
but that the engine was knackered.
Can anyone identify it for me? It appears to have a starting button next to
the ammeter, so I'd guess that it is shunt wound or possibly the bulge you
can just see on the far end from the ammeter is a separate starter motor.
The pulley is of a curious plasticy composition materiel.
There is no separate plate to indicate output, but I'd guess it is 24 Volts.
As to size, I can just about pick it up & put it in the back of the car, so
between 80-90lbs I'd guess.
