Wisconsin powered Maudsley Generator - information appreciated.

We have just rescued this little unit from a local garage. The former owner 90 said it was a searchlight generator he 'rescued' from a local airfield and then used to power a welding set. The generator is dated 1941. Can anyone spread any light on the subject or share any wartime photos? Many thanks. James.

It appears that Wisconsin had a tie-up with Lister throughout the period of WW2 - I discovered this during a search for Wisconsin AP-4 info. There is some info somewhere on http://www.internalfire.com but I can't find it at the moment!


The following is from an Australian stationary engine forum:


In the UK Wisconsin had an agreement with Lister from approx. 1936-1947. Initially engines were imported in CKD form and the Lister-made content gradually rose. The early imports had the US Wico C mag though this was soon replaced by the UK made Wico A.

A good many Wisconsin engines were supplied during WW2 as genny or pump sets.
