    Light...i never thought about noco...i jave a jump box of theirs...i ised the heck out of that thing...i used/abused it alone to start my dozer...but it is also rated to start big diesel trucks. I wanted something kinda overkill for the automotive side of things cause you never know. Anyhow...i...

    Chain...i think im over thinking things.im sure with a few vents along the bottom meshed over for the air intake holes of the gen to breathe and maybe duct the hot air up and out will be fine. I imagine simplicity will be the key.

    Zed...I planned on running the exhaust out. Just didn't know how much air flow provisions I need to operate the gen at a operating level of air flow. Like I mentioned, I live in the woods and have all kinds of critters that get into everything. Just want to make the gen house tight as possible...

    So the transporter misunderstood when i mentioned the date and appointment time and said if he wasn't there it wouldn't be till next week to pick the unit up. Not to mention when he missed the appointment he never called to let me know till delivery day and actually around delivery time he had...

    2 days and counting. Got the pulsetech in the mail today. For the money i hope it keeps the life of the batteries. It says up to 5x's longer but didn't see anywhere about the conditions it needs to have for it to happen. The paper I got had a link for "correct installation" on TQG's but the link...

    Good to know. Never thought about that aspect of it. So i guess the plan will be to disconnect the lines. blow them out, replace all rubber. Drain tank, wash tank, rinse, alcohol wipe, refuel and purge system to ensure everything is out and reconnect and bleed system. What about additives and/or...

    That was gonna be the plan was to flush the fuel lines. Im gonna have to replace all the rubber lines anyhow so i dont think there will be much flushing until i get them all replaced but should be pretty clean afterwards. What should I use to clean the tank. Just some Purple Power and call it...

    Zed...thats kinda crappy to deal with. Im hoping i dont run across anything like that with this unit. It has 587 on it. Didn't see any sign/evidence at the muffler-exhaust manifold flange, but who knows till you fire it up. There is nothing but hoping for the best. Also Thank you for the mention...

    Light...the whole concept for this generator was because being without power for a week during a hurricane. So I need to make sure i have all i need on the shelf. i can see why a parts generator would be a good thing. Filters and such is a good thing but what about other components of the gen...

I have one left over from my bulldozer that got stolen so i really just need one but will probably replace that one as well and also have...

    If that's the case. Lets hope it runs as good as it looks...of course without spending a ton of money on it With that being said does anyone care to share how much they spent getting the're generator up and running to a reliable state. Im budgeting 500.00...now am i in a dream? And please don't...

    I figured I would post some pics of the unit...Guyfang in some of the pics you can see some build up of dust/dirt along with some cob webs. So im sure a good cleaning will be in order. The hr meter reads 587 which isn't much in 14yrs since the reset. I guess it can be a bad thing or good. Time...

    True, I have done it with gas engines but not experienced with diesel engines and if it would affect it. Trans fluid has a great detergent properties just not sure about the lubricating properties. Surely there is some kind of detergents in diesel oil...im no oil expert though...lol. If...
