Thanks to you , ( I suddenly started thinking on scooter ,motorcycle engines , particularly having a cooling fan of its own ) I have almost reached conclusion about engine choice.

This will be a Kinetic Honda scooter engine
Features .
1) single cyl. two stroke .( less maintenance as lesser parts )
2) 100 cc ( 1 hp approx ), some 7 bhp @ 5000 rpm.
3) most importantly it has forced air cooling of its own ( a fan on crank ),unlike the motorcycle engine ( they are cooled when on move, by oncoming wind )
4) transmission can be separated easily. to use only crank pully.
5) added advantage, has a self starter . ( uses a much less current ,even a downed Jeep battery can start it )

most importantly ,it will be lot cheaper .( for such experiments )

will be posting developements

BHPians, in & close to Pune , please tell me about any old kinetic honda for sale around you .

Sudarshan

P.S. @ Gray Berry, dont use motorcycle engine, as cooling will be a major issue if kept stationary . Also you cant separate the Gearbox ,its kind of Monoblock assembly .

Sudarshan,

You may find this interesting.
A battery charger which is actually a hand operated generator.

It is packed in a 12"X8"X6" container.
The inspection year on it is 1944. In perfectly working condition.
Charges a 6 volts battery which originally came on WW jeeps.
It has its original operating manual (not in pic) with it.

It is with me since about 9 years, tested it but never used.
I am willing to give it to someone who values it like I do, who has a 6 volt powered Jeep, has other WW accessories to complete the set up.

You got to earn it! As for the little US army container, I will give it for free as I got it free.

Regards,

This thing seems to me as one used in communications, may be field telephoney kind of thing , at that time . I even remember seen something like this in our own Indian telephpne system ( It was used in intercom system ) .But that was too a long long time ago .

I dont think it will be sufficient to charge a battery for auto purpose .

But a very interesting piece of machinary though.

Thanks Fazal Ali Adil for sharing this

A very interesting thread. I did this installation of an air compressor on a 550 run by pto. It inflates tyres in less than a minute. If someone is interested i will post pics. My compressor is an old twin cylinder 250 cc truck compressor. Its mounted under left rear bench and is is belt driven.
