If I'm not mistaken, didn't GM offer a high output generator in at least
the late 50's? I think the mining company trucks around here had them so
that they would keep up with the 2 way tube style radios in the winter.
These trucks idled a lot to keep the heat and lights going. It may have
been something as simple as a smaller drive pulley so the thing would turn
