All these elements combine to produce the 24 horsepower (18 kWm) at 1800 RPM. Oil service intervals are 500 hours as standard.

The flywheel on this engine rotates anti clockwise, as viewed from the flywheel end.
Using this engine coupled with an alternator to make a generator would make for a very all round lower powered generator, or paralleled with more units would increase the output so it can suit the bigger jobs.
