    I have two test subjects.
    A dryer and oven. (maybe 60 amps total. Haven't checked the tags)
    Had to get my tractor running this weekend to move everything under roof.
    Will be connecting the three phase to single phase trans to the gen.
    Then the dryer and oven to the trans.
    Then I will be able for the load test.

    This was finished today.
    Connected a breaker box to transformer.
    Connected a dryer to breaker box.
    Lastly one of my pet deer's. (you have to zoom in)
    I believe I am ready to load test.
    L0 is not connected to anything

    Why did you run it in the door? Run the cable in the sock hole there, and yes, the ground wire should have been connected to LO. as you have a wire from the back side of LO to the back side of the ground stud. Or am I wrong here? That way you can close the door if you want, but LO and the ground stud are connected, as far as I remember. Wire X13B if my old rummy eyes are seeing half way right. The gen set ground is suposed to be hooked to a ground for the set.

    Kris, the load terminals are to be tightened up, with "gefühl". With feeling. Do not over tighten them. They strip easy.

    Otherwise, looks good.

    That's what I was thinking but I was told not to connect L0 to anything. Just connect the transformer ground to the frame and the frame to the ground rod.
    The wires are just connected for the load test. Will wire it correctly after the test. I will have to move the gen in a different location after the load test.

    Started the gen and ran the dryer for over a hour.
    Had to adjust the hz twice and volts once. (not very much)
    After I shut down the dryer the hz jumped to 61 hz.
    So far the gen has run total two hours since bought it.
    The fuel gage still shows full after the two hours.
    The load meter showed 30% while running the dryer.
    The transformer seemed to consume 2% without the dryer running.

    I think you are looking at a solid gen set. 59, 60, 61 hertz? Its all the same. Close enough. The set is after all, not a Precise Gen set.

    Don't refill the tank. Run it a few more times under load, to see if the fuel level sending unit is working. They sometimes get hung up, or gummed up, or come apart. So give it a work out.

    Under long term running conditions, like I said before, we did 6 or 8 hour checks. Don't even have to turn it off. You can check the oil level while running. Correct me if I am wrong, but I seem to remember that the oil dip stick reads on both sides. Running and stopped. Do not confuse them!

    At the same time, you check the gauges. We wrote the gauge reading down, and followed them if they started to change.

    Then fuel it up. Diesel is not real flammable. I never worried about hot re fueling on a gen set. Herman Nelson heater? Different story there. But a gen set? Nope. Or better yet, use the Aux fuel system. We always used it when we could. You just aint ever lived until you refuel 8 gen sets at night, in the rain, without a light, with 5 Galleon fuel cans.

    Have you checked the shutter assy?

    Ok,
    I will make a 2 hour run.
    The dryer shuts off after an hour. So I will run the dryer twice.
    Then I will make another two hour run.
    The shutter stays open. It does not open freely.
    The IP leak is fixed.
    Will recheck the oil
