Is that a generator connected to it?  What would it take to own it?

Yes.  Pretty sure it was a generator, didn’t really look at that end.    They had a v12 Cummins awhile back with a generator too.    Idk on a price.    He was leaving when I got there today and said have fun.   I will talk to him tomorrow

Thought I knew my Cummins but that is an odd one for me. Or maybe before my time anyway. Looks like it has been inside for its life, I'd say it probably runs.

Both intake and exhaust ports are on the same side. Is that a two valve head not a four valve? Small 672? or 743 Cu/In. What spec. is it?

Didn’t see much on the tag.     Plan on going out tomorrow again, I was on a different mission today.     He has a Amish guy that buys most of his generators so prob won’t end up scraped.

                       I could be way wrong but it looks like a old 300 to me.

I got a 300/320 and that ain't it. Plus I don't see piston cooler plugs that a 300/320 would have. Injection pump looks to be a disc not a PT so it is old, old. Intake and exhaust are on opposite sides on a four valve 743. The mystery continues...

What a cool place! Can you imagine working on old stuff like that for a living?

It is a H model delivered June 1951.   Got some more pics.  Will post soon.    Oil looks clean in it.     Said it would take $1800+or- to own it.

I’m trying to justify buying it.  Pretty sure I can get it for less then 1800.     Have no need whatsoever but hate to see it gone forever. They estimate there’s 200-300 pounds of copper in the generator.  If I don’t get it will prob be taken apart with an excavator.

Well, buy it take the copper off and sell that.  Then take that old engine and find the right truck to stick it in. That’s a win win right?

Thought of that.  But I’m not sure if an industrial engine will work right in a truck the way the governor is set up
