Had a nice run up to Andy Greening's place this morning, collected the two
Coventry Climax gennies that we did a deal on back at the beginning of the
year... got there in the end!
Interesting beasties, one has the alternator alongside the engine (4-Cyl 'SM'
Climax) and the other has it on top of the engine, making it very top-heavy.
Loads of metalwork and brackets etc., almost a van load without the two
generators, but it all travelled OK on the way back. We missed breakfast this
morning so we stopped and had a meal on the way home.
I have a book for the 2.75kVA version of this set, but nothing on the 3-1/2kVA
set. I know Andy asked before, but if anyone has anything relevant, please
The engine is almost as small as the little Kohler, but being a bit more modern
has more features and probably more HP.
Got to unload it all tomorrow and see what we are going to do with evetuthing,
but initial thoughts are to make up a pair of chassis for them both and build as
the one type.
They are 240V 50Hz, so could be useful.
