The TM claims .63gph. I don’t know at what perfect of full load that number is taken from. I’ll have to do some research and real world testing once I get it all set and hooked up.Nice setup! If it were me I would leave the Aux fuel line where it is. If it ever starts weeping due to age you will notice it quickly.
So now with your 50 gal aux tank how much run time say at an avg ~50% load would that give you?
Check out the last pic in the very first post. I made a custom elbow to assist with draining the oil.Take the oil drain plug out, and visit the store. Go to the brass water fittings and get a brass threaded to barbed hose adapter. I want to say 3/4", but can't remember off hand. That gives you enough side clearance to drain the oil when its time. Take it off, and store it, put the plug back in.
a small 4-5" threaded pipe to extend the drain. Otherwise it will just dribble down the side.
I picked up yesterday ,and very fast, the battery is dead, I need found 2 newerI was in and out in less than 10 minutes. I called a day in advance and scheduled the pickup. When I arrived they had already moved the unit right up front by the gate. Soon as I pulled in a guy on a forklift came up and all I had to do was show him the release form I printed and brought with me, and he loaded the unit right up. Easy as pie.
Nice work @Abrant23!! Can you tell me if the access doors and panels are steel or aluminum? I'm considering buying one and have some extra magnetic sheets I'd like to use for posting info on the sides and doors.Oh, I guess I could also post the work I did on straightening out the panels. Our press brake did a number on em with the assistance of some foam.
My 1040 has gone up to 15kw and does not shut down. Just gives me a overload error. Loving it.Where you at? I'm close to Vidalia. I have a load bank that loads my MEP-803 to 97%. Personally I like the 1040s. Then again I work on two generators that output 920MWs each.
