Does it look anything like this? You're probably missing the instruction sheet. 8^) Jack E/NJ

Glen, Glad it went to a V 8er.. My son & I Lookedat it but my son decided to pass on it. I would have put it on a trailer and set it up. Had the fenders etc. but my health does not allow me to weld . Kerk N.E & CT. V 8 clubs

I saw one of those powering a siren on the roof of an old hotel--tried to buy it but the owners said it would be too expensive to get down/ too much liability for me to do it--they just knocked the building down and destroyed it.

I got one that powered a water pump in the old S D Warren paper mill in Westbrook ME. I got it started. No pump on it now and mine unfortunately isn’t K R Wilson... Mark

Glenn, i have a 1940 KRW catalog and that was called an Enclosed type industrial unit. They originally came with louvered side panels, and was for outdoors operation. They also could be ordered with a ford or mercury engine, to run on gasoline, natural gas, or butane.
