    If it's on it's own trailer and starts and runs, haul it to a consignment auction. What size is that? those numbers don't mean anything to most of us. If it's 4 cylinders then Craigslist is as good as anywhere, the bigger/newer it is the more you have to lose by selling too cheap, and the fewer potential buyers on Craigslist.

    No doubt there will be a Ritchie brothers auction within a couple hundred miles?

    Yes we need more information, but I'll go out on a limb and guess this is a 3304 Genset. Just going by something in an older thread that mentioned the first number!(2p940)

    I'd be looking for a tag or the remains of one on either side, seems like right side is the most likely just a bit below bottom of head. If no tag look for two small rivets or holes for them. There should be the s/n stamped in that area. Also is there a tag of any kind on the generator itself?
