Cleaning out the garage.

Postby Barnyard » Wed Mar 26, 2014 5:36 pm

As many of you know, I am getting ready to sell my rental property. The three car garage behind the house was never cleaned out since we moved ten years ago. Today I started working on that project. One of the things I grabbed today was this US Army power unit made by D.W. Onan & Sons. It actualyl sat covered with a tarp outside the building. It ran when I parked it but was hard to start then. I have a feeling it will be harder to start now. Just another "project" to sit around by the barn.

The generator never worked when I got it but I did get the panel board with all the controls and outlets. It is still in the garage.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

The kind of things I love to play with, but being that age, it may not be 60 hertz. I think some of the old military stuff was 120 hertz, or something on that order.

John, I believe the military nomenclature plate is with the control panel. I will try to remember to look tomorrow when I am over at the other house.

A lot of the radar I worked on in the Navy was set up for 440V 400Hz. That'll tickle your funnybone :D

Cool generator. Is that a Willys Jeep engine in it?

Yes, one of the reasons I bought it.
