To me it looks like the PH1 Models have cooling grooves on the water jacket and AV1's do not, so then wouldn't this have to be an AV1?

What is parts availability like on the JP type engines?

It  looks like a Petter PH1 water cooled. Or also a AV1.

It could be either, and the easiest way to tell from pictures only is the injector, but as the fuel injector and pump are not original, there is no way to be certain from pictures alone.

So I found some additional info and it looks like it's defiantly a petter AV1, is this a model that is copied by the Indians and has a decent parts availability?

If it is, it will not be 10HP as per the auction description, plenty of spares available from India, from all the usual suppliers.

Looks to have many non original additions.

So if it is 10hp then it would be for sure a PH1? Also here is an additional picture.

Found this on craigslist, seems like a decent deal if it works. I'm not looking for another engine right now but thought another member might enjoy it.

Yes it has an auxiliary oil filter and an oil drain line. I don't have it installed yet but have it. It also had a pretty robust fuel filter setup, but I probably won't be running a fuel pump so will probably just setup a gravity feed and inline filter.

Well I'm a little torn because my transfer switch for my house has a 240v input socket; however, we are thinking about moving soon and I think this generator will be used as part of a backup power system that would include a battery bank and charge controller. So I need to figure out if the AC input for the charge controller (for the battery bank) takes 110v or 220v. I believe its 110, in which case the head you suggested should work well.

And yes it came with a 2 belt centrifugal clutch pulley.

Thanks Henry, I didn't think anybody still used these but I was wrong. They will have a ton of knowledge on that platform.

I'll probably spring for the slightly bigger one then, sometimes they have a sale on them. I'm also picking up a flux welder this week and plan to put together a frame for the engine and head. I recall seeing a picture on the forum somewhere of some Changfa type generator frames that people had built, one had the alternator either directly above the engine or at a 45 degree angle above. I remember a few different examples, does anyone know where those pics might be hiding?
