 I have the diesel engine but no generator..:(

I have a old german hanomag diesel about 30 hp, I am looking for a generator I can hook up to it using a close couple, I want to run at 1800 rpm and be able to produce about 15KW continious. I have build a fly wheel adapter with a 1.25 shaft to accept a keyed close couple. but need a good source for the generator. I have looked at the Northern Catolog with no luck, can someone make a suggestion as to where I can look?Matt

Matt,
You may want to keep an eye on e-bay, here is a link to one PTO generator listed right now. It may not be what you're looking for, but the fellow listing it has others, apparently.

I searched for "generator" and then ordered them by price, highest price first.

There is a place in Wyoming -either Cheyenne or Laramie - that advertises in farm magazines as being a specialist in generators of all types and particularly PTO generators. I don't have anything with his adv. in it right now, does anyone else know about this shop?

I am in the critical power industry. Call the local reps for Caterpillar, Onan/Cummins, Generac, Square D, Siemens, Russelectric. They sell the really big stuff but might know who to call. They are usually in the phone book, or available via the manufacturer's website. Call the closest motor rewind shop, they will know who to call, or more likely will have something. When hooking a generator up as back up power there are tons of codes, refer to a code book or manual. Most importantly, be able to isolate the utility feed, so you don't backfeed the entire grid or parallel it when it returns, or kill the guy sent out to repair you downed line. Be able to isolate the generator too. Pay close attention to grounding, this is very important, remeber, less than 1/100th of one amp is enought get a conversation with St Peter. Pay attention to where the exhast goes, so you don't wake up dead one morning becase the exhaust was blowing into an environmental intake for the house. Be aware of prevailing wind direction. Mother nature is on a first name basis with Mr. Murphy, if it is stationary, construct a weather shelter. Since you never have to repair a backup generator in good weather make sure stucture is enough not to compromise your safety and make repairs/refueling easier. When the power goes out... get a good flashlite, isolate the utility feed first, turn EVERTHING in the house off, connect the generator and get it running, begin placing load on the generator by turning the essentials on first starting with the largest electrical load and progressing to the smallest and least important. A heavily loaded generator will drop in output frequency, you would be suprised at how much of today's equipment will sh*t the bed if faced with as little as a 2Hz drop in frquency. Keep plenty of air and fuel filters handy. Bad fuel is a residential back-up generator's biggest enemy. If you don't expect to need the unit shut off the gas and drain the tank. Run/cycle the generator unloaded once a week 10-15 minutes, place load on the generator for the same time once a month in the bad weather season. I am not trying to scare you, I just want to help,and I hope this has helped. Get a good book on hooking up generators from the web, or look to one of the self reliance/ back country living magazines also available on the web for additional resources. They have all kinds of great services and ads for all kinds of rural folk.
