I have recently obtained an R2 gen set comprising of the Stuart base plate,engine and dynamo but not the electric control(?) box that sits on top of the dynamo - does anyone know where I can get one from or if its possible to make one please?The engine number is 33619( 1940's?),300 watts,25/35 volts 12/8 amps.
This engine uses thermodynamics to cool it- can anyone let me know what size water tank I need?
Any help or guidance would be much appreciated.

Hi Kevin -
Stuart recommended a 14 gallon tank for use with the R2 generating plants (19 gallons for the R3). If you're not going to run it @ full load for extended periods then you can get away with much less...
The switchboards do occasionally crop-up for sale - there's quite a bit to them (a cut-out / field rheostat / fuses / ammeter / voltmeter / various switches / the electric start switch) - most of it could be fashioned from alternative components.
Have a gad @ the attached (poor!) wiring diagram for inspiration.
