Got the last QD hub and sheave today and am finishing up the charge controller wiring. With luck it will charging batteries this weekend. Pretty quiet and runs really smooth with the dual balance shafts. Hope to have the bux this week to buy another.

Might painter 'er pink call 'er Miss Piggy. Cute as a bug's ear methinks!

Doug,
This is the same engine I had on the boat.  Put a 125A alternator on in and it wouldnt carry the load(1.5kw).  I had to de tune the alternator to 100W and it ran fine for about 3000 hours.  Still worked when I sold it.  Output was more like 2.5hp than the claimed 4hp.
