Hi chaps.
That motor that I was asking about, whether or not it'd be suitable to use as a generator, has been put to good use on my Lister Domestic Pump project: I serviced the pump which was in good condition and is great except for the non original top cover plate. Here it all is. I'm just wondering whether or not I should paint the motor or keep it looking ratty: It'll be fun to have this running from my generator powered by the Lister B engine.

You can see here, on the back side of the motor there is a conical pulley unit with different diameter grooves. These will be handy in using this motor to drive other equipment:

Because of this brass plate I am assuming this pump is quiet old. Some of the later ones have a sliver/ black plate. Correct? Any ideas?

I have since painted the electric motor and am pleased with the results.
I also got some new wheels that are stronger and more industrial. They also match the black solid cast iron wheels on my Lister's trolley a bit better.:

Yes you are correct, the newer ones do have the pressed aluminium type spec plates. I'm not sure when they changed from brass though.
My pump has a brass spec plate. But i've only managed to test mine by turning a bike upside down and turning the pedals with my hand with the rear wheel braced against the pulley!  Very Happy
