Interesting stuff. I have a Kubota genny that this is based on in the garage and now a bunch of ideas. As for regulators, any single phase regulator of a jap bike would probably work.

I know it was a few years ago,but,I would sure like to know if jonjuan 76 got his problem solved without huge problems in his cam chest,it sounds like...I can come to no other conclusion...the nut came off the shaft and the gear disengaged / came off too,since he mentioned no inadvertent noise,I hoped for his sake the parts found some niche or nook to settle in and he removed the cam over and retrieved them before great calamity occurred,in effect "dodging the bullet" that or a broken shaft as in some Chinese gennys is the only reasonable scenario .Is the Veetwin unit TRULY made in US ? Surprise me! I would probably go for the more costly CE conversion or the pwerraythor before a Chinese unit.Right now I am awaiting my new CE 2569 to arrive via FedEx,but someday I might consider the conversion.i am trying to stay original which was CE and trouble free for many years but I want a ride down Route 66 and reliability of machine is really important but that is still a dream in the future.
