Fred, this is the muffler/feedwater heater I built for an early steam carriage I'm restoring.

This is my set up:

Good for 15 amps in theory, and so far has had more than enough power for anything I have needed!

It directly drives an unmodified 24VDC permanent magnet motor, so I don't have to spin it too fast to get 12V.

Of course it helps that the rated power/speed of the engine is 1/3 bhp @ 2,800rpm on 80psi

Nice Sirius.

I always wondered how close a Stuart Sirius is to the gensets Stuart made for WW2.

I used a Stuart 4a and could get 100Watts out without much trouble with a WindBlue permanent magnet alternator. Load: 12V 100Watt incandescent light bulb.
