  1. Hello All I hope you had a Merry Christmas and looking forward to a pleasant New Year. I have been a member of HMVF for 4 years and during that time never posted any articles, so this is my first post and I am looking forward to your replies. Some 35 years ago I aquired a small generator unit, very similar to the Chorehorse ones on the site now. The gen set came from a friend who unfortunately left the set outside to gather rust at an alarming rate + at some stage it had been dropped on the control box causing quite a bit of damage, fortunately the tin parts were easily straightend, but much of the wiring was damaged. I am at the stage where I would like to get the set reassembled and running, that is where I hope you can help me out. This set is different to all the others I have seen on various web sites, mine has the control box on top of the generator, all others I have found have the box on the side. I made a number of wiring diagrams at the time the set was dismantled to help with rebuilding but I have hit several problems. These are the details from the various plates on the fuel tank and the fan casing. Power Unit DC/AC 250w (American) No3 BMB 1941 WD Serial No B1079 Cat No ZB A1101 1. Should there be a variable resistance on the control box to set the output voltage. 2. Does anyone out there have a wiring diagram for this particular set, I found one for a BSA set which has been very helpful. 3. Through testing I have found the pick-up coil in the cut-out is open circuit, I have dismantled the cut-out and weighed the wire removed to give a clue as to the qty required to rewind it. 4. I have an assortment of wires and copper links but I cannot see where they belong. Any help would be much appreciated. Attached a couple of photos to give an idea as to where I am in rebuilding the set. Regards Roger
