My max load is 11kw, what are you going to turn on that requires 45?

I will point out that a detroit is the worst choice for running under light load conditions. 45 kw is enough to run 5 or more normal homes at the same time.

While I agree, 45kw is a LOT of power, good luck keeping it from "wet-stacking", the Detriot can use almost ANY hydrocarbon as fuel. I know I've run my share of "alternate fuel" in my military rigs.

Could keep the fuel costs down.

I too want to know what were lighting up.

I have recently got my hands on Nikola Tesla's death beam plans.
I plan on building one. Liberals will be my targets!

Then maybe a transporter, like in Star Trek, or a flux capacitor.

I've got a 3 and a 4-71 working on the farm. So far, 30 years and counting and only filters and the occasional torque pack and coupling shaft for the blowers over that time.

Noise can be an issue without a few walls between it and you.

Well it was a 100 mile round trip to go view it and discuss the purchase price.

A few pictures first...

The hour meter reads 886 hours, on a 99,999 hour meter.
