Douglas FT35 generating set no 2
« on: 17 Nov 2018 at 22:42 »
Evening all, my name is Richard and I live in Calne Wiltshire and a few weeks ago got this Generating set which is almost complete, apart from the exhaust, I have had it running but requires new rings as burning oil and find it hard starting with the handle as compression is low.

hi , its good to see a GOOD photo of the gennie , have recently got hold of a part one , mine is the frame , motor with carb and magneto , gauges only, so iv been looking around for photos showing a complete unit , now know would be almost impossible to restore mine but still thinking of doing a hybrid as if get the motor running would be easy to attach a modern generator or pump to it , sorry don't have a photo at this time (one of the few that doesn't have a m/phone so photos arnt easy) you have done well to find one so complete , here in aust very, very rare
