Home made diesel generator. My generator I made, using a Kubota 4hp diesel engine that was used in a highways flashing arrow sign, a car battery, alternator, inverter, and a 1500w generator head that was originally from a late 60's 2 cyl military generator. It's not a high output generator, but it's good on fuel, and can be used to jump a car/truck, and charge it's battery, while running a block heater or battery warmer. Built more as a yard power source, than a home generator. I built a light pole that slides in a holder on the unit, and is about 7' high, with 2 12v flood lights on it, for working in the dark.
