Dayton generator barn find

Recommended Posts

MDB

Friend of mine gave me this 3500 watt Dayton generator. I spent most of the day cleaning it up and putting several things back to original.... It runs and generates power. This also has a starter built into the generator itself. The only thing I am missing is a resistor for the charging system. There is no tag on this unit so I am asking for any info that you fellows might have. The engine is a Briggs 23D so that dats the generator to around 1962-65.

Thanks

Mike, I was guessing you have a model 1W832.  A bit later for the 3500 9 hp was Model numbers are Dayton 1W832A and Briggs 233431.

There is a wiring diagram on SmokStak but I can't get it because I'm not a member (or can't remember my name and password)

Looking at your pics again, what is the Cat no. between the outlets ? That might be your model number too.

Dayton is the Grainger brand isn't it?  I seem to recall Dayton brand garden tractors sold by Grainger, and made by MTD. There was a big heavy duty 16 HP one with a 3 pt hitch.

Dayton is most known for electric motors. But like every other company, I think they got into other things too.

Others may have just used the same name too, Dayton electric motors are (or were) built in Dayton Ohio

Kinda like Allis and Simplicity in the 20 and 30's ;)

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul
