Question HELP WANTED - Sawafuji generator

I was given a SAWAFUJI generator to restore, on which I need some basic information. It has a Mitsubishi 4 stroke single cylinder gas engine and the stator is wound as six poles feeding a six diodes block for the + output. There are other windings which I am identifying.Can anybody out there please help me identify the alternator model so that I can restore it to working order.I attach a photo of the back end to help identification.I guess it is a 4-6 kW model.The engine runs sweetly after cleaning out the carb.

All your help is greatly appreciated.

That is going to be next to impossible. You need to look all over that unit for any type of markings or lettering or numbering.

In searching around I found their website which may be able to help you. If the link isn't helpful....try googling the generator model number for help.

thanks PJmax.

I've googled that site but not of any help without the model number.The only marking on the alternator is a small label with the company name. Model number is blank.
On the engine side I found a Mitsubishi logo on the starter flywheel .I am sending the pictures to the parent company in Japan perhaps they can come back with some info.

more information


it appears to be a welding generator . I conclude this as Elemax ( Ex-Sawafuji) do a welding generator using 6 pole star connected windings with a single diode on each leg. All positive outputs are combined in parallel from which I can get 60 volts DC which lights up 5 headlamps in series very brightly. It also has various output tappings like 24 volts AC , 8 volts DC (via single diode rectifier ) when excited with 12 volts , 4 amps from a small battery . It has a double coil magneto with only one of the coils driving the spark coil while at the other coil is unconnected so I suppose it could be used to charge the starter battery via a rectifier and regulator.

Does any of above ring a bell to someone ?

I would really apprecate if someone identifies this and provide a schematic.

Many thanks in advance.
