300 amps @24 volts is 7200 watts, or ~9.6 horsepower. That is just the electrical load, and does not include any mechanical or system losses such as belt drives, gears, starting loads, etc. To select an engine, reasonable design practice would to be to at least double the raw electrical HP requirements. That would mean the engine required would be around 20HP. I"ll bet that Wisconsin V-4 was at least that HP or likely more.

Thanks Jerry, and yes I believe it was from an old 2 row Moline combine. Yellow and hand crank it. Hated the fact that they would start right up in a couple cranks cold. We would blow the chaft and dust off as much as we could and fuel them hot while running or otherwise u could crank until you couldn't crank anymore an it might or might not start. Anyway I don't remember the V# or letter but most of the old pull type 2 rows were 18 to 20 hp. Thanks for the in put, was much appreciated. Oh ya, forgot to mention there was a few combine fires around back then.

Most of the adds for generators show 2 hp per 1000 watts.
