That looks like a golf cart starter generator, I have used the generator coils in a standard GM generator. The ones I had were 1.6 ohms. There 2 different sizes of generator coils for those. The smaller ones wont put out that much. If I remember right about 35 volts per coil. The larger ones will put out 120 volts.They just about light 3-100 watt bulbs to full brightness.

This motors are fun to work with. The brush end cap has its disadvantages.
