Build Your Own 12 VDC Engine/Generator

How to build your own 12 VDC engine/generator from a "lawnmower engine (or any other small horizontal shaft engine)" and an automotive alternator for use in concert with a renewable energy source (solar panels, wind turbine, etc.).  The idea is to use this homemade genset to help keep your off-grid battery bank charged when the renewable energy source(s) don't quite get the job done alone.

All comments on this blog are moderated, meaning they don't appear until approved by me. So, when your comment doesn't appear immediately, *DO NOT* throw a hissy-fit and assume I'm refusing negative comments (yes, it really happened). I approve pretty much everything that isn't obvious SPAM, negative or not, and I promise you that will include your hissy-fit comments, accusing me of a grand conspiracy to squash dissenting ideas (also really happened). The result, of course, being that you will look like a fool, and the rest of us will laugh heartily at your stupidity.
