Dude! You beat me to the draw again!If you are intending on doing a flush, I believe I have previously read here a post from Guyfang about running ATF in the machine instead of oil for a certain amount of hours. Really helps strip out any built up gunk, then flush, and replace with standard oil. Maybe he will wander by to correct me.
The rubber thing is a battery terminal cover. I kinda like them on the POS. terminal. The big socket? trailer Lunet nut? Cant see whats all the way in the back.
Do NOT use ATF fluid in your unit just yet. If your unit was reset, and does not have tons of hours on it. It probably is not junked up. I say change the oil because oil breaks down after years of sitting after it has been used, heated, cooled, and heated and cooled. You said it was reset in 2005. That's a long time for oil to break down. If later you find you have oil system issues, then you can think about running some ATF fluid in the crankcase for a run and then empty.
1 spin on oil filter
1 spin on water fuel filter
1 cartridge filter
That's the way they are. there is not changing. The 002 and 003 are units which folks have modded to spin-on filters.
Go back to the Filters thread, 2nd post and go through the quick links again. You will then be up to speed with the naming of accessories too.
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 laugh if I'm way off...lol
