Those Delco lighting plants have become collectible. Especially the appliance and glass case batteries made for them.
Buy it cheap and stack it deep

The Fairbanks Onan still isn't running just yet.

I'm getting spark like I should but only from one coil now.
Compression test started at 20 psi but got up to 90 psi and held there.

Got new spark plugs installed.

If you can spin it fast enough and the flywheel is heavy enough you should be able to run it on one cylinder.
It will only fire every 4 revolutions so it will bounce.
Take out the non firing plug for less resistance.
