Sirens ?........

Uncle Franz, I have a great big ol' Federal that I have mounted in my flower planter out front.....(out of sight, of course).

I light that baby up on New Years Eve, right at Midnight.....and you should see the lights come on in the neighborhood !

Any really smart helper knew what a 6 volt battery and set of jumper wires were for, so the magneto could be colder than a welldigger's a$$ and you'd still have a spark that was hotter than hell.

I'm not the final judge but that submission is too forced. It has to seem as though it just flowed onto your screen without thinking.

* I WONDER *........

Does anyone know when Lincoln stopped using the Continental engines, and started using the General Motors engines (on their gasoline SA200's) ?

I know they used to use Perkins diesels up until a year or two ago, until they thought it was "politically correct" to Ba$tardize them with "Jap-Crap" Kabooties.......

I can see the writing on the wall......"In my lifetime, Lincoln will no longer offer a D.C. generator machine" !

If you look at the manuals on the Lincoln site the first one for the Continental TM-27 engine is dated November 1992. Didn't find anything on the GM

Marko, strictly from my memory, Lincoln switched from Continental to GM at least 10 years back, and the propoganda when they made the switch was that Continental could no longer meet emission standards. Around the same time, Continental was going thru a shakeup of their own. Damned if I remember an exact date though.

The switch from Perkins to Kubota was because Perkins couldn't meet import emission requirements. Don't underestimate those Kubotas, they are a very good engine, just not as good as a US made Yanmar.

Now Uncle Franz, I KNOW Yanmar is a reliable engine (from personal experience).......but they, too, are "Yapaneese"

Those magneto's are about as simple as it gets, points, condenser, cap and rotor. If it's turning, and not under water, it's making fire.
