 Hello all, to tell the truth i'm not a wind turbine fanatic, i'm a sailor. Well anyway this AM i picked up a CL posting that was advertised as a marine 12v wind generator. I'm not so sure it's marine as it may be a bit bulky. Anyway after search many images i observed that my turbine blades have a similarity to the wincharger turbines. I want to post the pics here and see if anybody can help with ID. I rec'd 3 parts in total, the gen body itself which looks like an old car generator, the dual turbine with brakes(?) and a plastic swinging vane. any help thanks
BTW-the wind turbines have an overall length of 5 ft and the vane is about 39 inches.
I tried posting pics was told too large attachment

Hi, I am the OP. I just read about posting pics, mine re too large. I am not that computer savvy, what needs to be done to reduce the size of my pics? They were taken with my phone

All was good with your description until you used the word plastic, doesn't sound like anything vintage but I'd be glad to take a look.  There are a number of pc programs that allow you to resize the pics.  I'm sure there are also phone apps that do the same but I've never used them.  Last resort I'd be glad to do it for you if you email them to me.

It's called a Four Winds II.  I don't know much about them but it is obvious that they liked the Wincharger air brake governor design.

Thanks a bunch. Did some follow-up and it is a marine genny. Missing some important parts though, the rotary contacts and part that attaches vane to genny motor and the little blue control box. Probably only find them by luck. But thanks for the help, the internet is great.
