Pour a concrete footing at least 4 foot deep with a gravel base not forgetting a wood template with the bolt spacing using rated bolts with 5" washers set into the footing.<BR>A friend and I mounted a Fairbanks-Morse type Y heavy oil engine coupled to a Westinghouse 250 kva squirrel cage alternator with external DC field excitation that way. grin.gif" border="0

You see stuff that big when the carnivals come to town on a trailer with a big Cat diesel running at 2500 RPM all night long.<BR>The hospital has one setup when Edison drops out it kicks on autopilot using Propane for fuel. Stude8
