I got a wild hair one day and decided to fabricate a poor mans generator from a lawn mower engine and a single wire alternator. I use it to power a battery bank consisting of three deep cell marine batteries. I connected an inverter to the battery bank to change the DC to AC and use it for power outages, camping, charging batteries, etc. Hope you like it!
- 5 HP Honda lawn mower engine Vertical Shaft
- Pulleys and Belt from Tractor Supply
- Aluminum Frame from Scrap Yard
- Positive & Negative Clamps, Voltage Meter, & Alternator from Advance Auto

The alternator was about $40.00 and was a tractor replacement. The kind that requires no wiring harness. It charges as soon as it starts turning. The system charges at 14.5 volts.
