Provision for second generator
    This is a type 1 dual port engine as installed in an early '70s German Type 181 radio car. The ignition is water and shock proof, and the brackets for the extra generator can be seen to the left of the distributor. The pulley for the extra generator is behind the regular pulley and plainly visible. Also note the absence of fresh air ducts, the *Thing's* exhaust does not have provisions for heater boxes and an Eberspacher gas heater was located in the front cargo area.
