What is this?

Can someone tell me what I'm looking at here? Generator/watermaker combo is what I'm thinking, but I know I'm probably wrong....

Was the PO on dialysis?

oscar 11-01-2015 03:43 PM

Lol! OK, I don't have pictures of the mains (or is this one?) but it's a twin Lehman 120 tub. Is that what I'm looking at with who knows what mounted on top of it?

What you're looking at is a piece of crap.

As to what it does/did, looks like an engine driving an AC or DC armature.

hmason 11-01-2015 03:50 PM

Home made washing machine?

oscar 11-01-2015 03:50 PM

What, pray tell, is an AC or DC armature?

Ski in NC 11-01-2015 04:53 PM

That's a 7.5kW Onan twin cyl diesel AC genset, MDJ series. AKA "bucket of rocks".

No water maker in sight.

I don't see anything other than an engine for a possible generator. The output end is not shown. Space saving was not a priority. I do not see any watermaker equipment. The heat exchanger and bronze pump are for the engine coolant. There is a seawater pump with cover removed down on the left.

Greetings,
Mr. o. Not to dis Mr. Ski but was the PO a ...?

I don't own this, just shopping..... some sales guy thought it was a good idea to add this visual to the promotional materials.......

CPseudonym 11-01-2015 05:43 PM

Ski gave the correct answer of course but then again Bill in post #4 did too.

It's the part of a generator that makes the electricity.

Well at least it's an honest picture.

OK, I know what that looks like, and I guess that's the lower green part. So the top part is some type of combustion driven contraption?

Now, don't get me wrong, I am not poking and I'm not technically illiterate. I took my first 50cc apart when I was 15, and I've been wrenching ever since. It's just that this whole contraption looks kinda silly to me. I guess the photograph doesn't do it justice, or whomever cobbled it together was a Franken product.......:eek:

oscar 11-01-2015 08:01 PM

The biggest problem I have with it, I guess, is the +/- 4" diameter horizontal tube in the front of the white (engine?) part of it......

You mean the heat exchanger?

Marin 11-01-2015 08:07 PM

We have a 7.5 kw Onan MDJE in our boat and it doesn't look anything like that. Not saying the thing in the photo isn't an Onan generator, but it's not an MDJE.

oscar 11-01-2015 08:10 PM

And the plot thickens.....

Well there are some similarities.

oscar 11-01-2015 08:42 PM

Indeed there are. Seems some components may have been "relocated".
