Help please!

Hi, my name is Margie and I live in Northern CA. I own a local Thrift Store and I received two Generators recently. One of the generators is huge, it has a Jeep Engine and looks like a military issue of some kind. I can't find a make or model on it but Reiner? The other generator is a lot smaller and is green, it says Onan on it. They both run great I was told, since they were used in a local motel here. Where would I go, look, read, ? Anything, to get some info on these generators? I would like to sell them quick. Any info on where or what, I would be very grateful. Thank you .

The Onan will have a plate on it with the Model & Serial numbers that will tell everything about it... Post a clear picture of the plate here or better yet on https://www.smokstak.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=1 and you'll learn ALL about it.

I think that 10KW Reiner is from the mid 1950s or maybe up to the early 1960s. I've seen those sell in the $500-750 range. There's some interesting case law re: the Reiner contract with the US Gov that you can read about here: https://casetext.com/case/john-reine...G_PAGE_GROUP=C

You can also read about the Reiner military gensets here: https://www.smokstak.com/forum/searc...archid=9122156
