I have not tried it but I see no obvious reason why it wouldn't motor or generate. It has the original oil cups and wire terminals on it yet as can be seen. It looks to have had a name tag on it but I think reproductions are findable.It has some original black paint on it yet but I didn't clean it very much other than a light dusting. It would make a nice addition to your early toy or electrical collection. It would also be neat as a generator pulled by a model gas or steam engine! The pictures tell the story.
