Was able to pickup a used 12/2 that sat in the back of a garage for the last 10 years. Used a engine hoist and a tailer to load it onto. Yes these are heavy engines. It turns but is a little stiff from sitting. Thanks to 38ac, dieselgman and cobbadog for the rigging tips. It has some rust under the rocker covers and valve springs. Will probably take the heads of first and open up the front cover and see what is going on in there after sitting so long.

I have been on and off the fence about getting one of these engines for the last few years.  If I am going to build a decent generator set, I wanted one that was good on fuel, made the horsepower I needed and most of all I wanted slow speed. That is the main selling point for me.

I do not want a diesel engine like a kubota and others that have to run in there sweet spot of 2800 rpm. That is to fast for me to want to listen to. For me 2200-3000 rpm is a high speed engine esp for diesel, and dont want to listen to that racket.

Came across this 12/2 and the lady who was getting rid of it just wanted it gone. Guess it was her ex boyfriend who owned it. but he left the engine and took off a while ago.. Also got 60 gallons of diesel that was stored properly. seems good ,we will see. If it runs it maybe the best $$ i have spent. It will be a project for sure.
