When I have started it since WOG, a lot more whitish gray smoke. Doesn't normally smoke that much and on startup IRC, it was more black. It was in the 40's and 50's here tempwise. The Racor has a...

Do you have a picture Crit?

Turbo blankets? Yes or no?

So doing some work on the bus, new hinges for the doghouse. Old aluminum brackets were seized to the pivot pins.
Anyway... lots of info about turbo blankets online. Do you have them?

1988 Onan/Kubota air filter

So I’m servicing my generator and can’t find a new air filter like the one that’s on it.

Battery connections

Time for some new batteries on my 88 FC35. Pics of the old Interstate batts show how a PO had them connected. Is this the norm for these connections? Or should I put some of these post conversions or...
