    I'm not seeing where I am wrong...Info Please!

    Didn't find anything wrong that I didn't cause...I got the gen mounted back to the engine. I wondering if I have it setting square to the mounting plates of the skid vs the engine. Cleaning everything now and rebuilt the fuel rail with new fuel line. Gonna replace a few connector ends here and...

    The insulation still pliable and not hard any. There is two spots...about six inches from where they come out and about six inches after that. It's on most but not all the way around... Thinking about it...it might be from the p-clamps that secure it to the air intake boxes on the side of the...

    When I purchased my unit I replaced the water pump and thermostat had the radiator redone and multiple gaskets that were leaking, before I even started it. I since had learned a few things...I just wanted to do things in what I thought was the right thing. It was my first one... everything...

    I understand that there will be a loss of pressure due to the heating of the oil. My thing is around 18psi is the shut off on these units. I dont feel comfortable running something at the minimal amount when it comes to lubrication much less with a load and the potential to need to be ran for...

    I will...got off work this morning and got the gen set removed from the engine...I will say the crank is turning some serious mass between the rotor and flywheel...I got some reading to do as to test and check everything out on the gen. Then some clean up and touch on a few things here and...

    No lies...that is the reason why...my unit was doing the exact same thing. The thought of 18psi when I am depending on it and a failure to happen would only frustrate me. The unit I am swapping with has had a 3hr test run with no loss of pressure...all 3hrs were unloaded hrs...but maintained a...

    Very much so...thank you for the time you took to clarify this for me. Just seems like alot of manuals to be looking through for this genset. I use parts books in conjunction with the service manuals when working on motorcycles. Same concept just alot more applications I guess with these units

    I can't lie...I do struggle with them...but to be honest I haven't opened them up for a while, least until I started this swap...I will say my skills understanding how it works could definitely improve. It's all on the front of them. I just need to familiarize myself with them again.

    Your right...I should had checked more into it. I did fail to mention the pressure drops over an hour of run time.it starts out at good pressure but gradually drops. I agree the swap may be excessive for a simple fix but really it isn't that bad of a job and I get to be more expirenced with my...

    I did almost that...lol... but the engine and gen head is still attached. As for the flywheel I need to confirm both are the same. It appears to be different. My donor engine is from a 400hz unit with only 53hrs. My original engine says 590hrs and I thought low pressure don't seem right. Won't...

    I have that one but didn't see it in there...I will go back and look again...I have 5 different TM's for this thing for different aspects. I figured I overlooked it in 1 of them...thank you

    I'm not seeing where I am wrong...Info Please!

    Ya...it works fine...doing the swap cause the engine drops oil pressure after about an hour of run time to about 20lbs.

    I'm not seeing where I am wrong...Info Please!

    I have an 803a and doing a motor swap. For the life of me I can't find in the manuals anywhere on how to remove the gen set from the engine adapter plate. I have through studs from the rear of the gen set to the adapter plate and fastens securely there and have bolts on the flywheel but not...
