Military 3000W Onan Generator –WW II?

I got this generator years ago, and have used it at my cabin as back up power for a long time. It is a 2 cylinder, water cooled Onan, 3000W, 115V, crank start, with a magneto. In it’s prime, it would even start well in cold weather. A while back, it quit running, and I got a Honda gen with electric start.   I think it has low compression on one cylinder.

Neat resto project for the military buff or old-motor equipment guys.

I’ll listen to offers. It’s too neat to scrap.

An additional benefit: it goes pooka-pooka when running and calls in grouse very well!
