Replacement generator head is now in service. New unit is a CGG164C 13.5kW single phase with SAE #4/7.5 drive plate/bell housing, from Central Georgia Generator:


The CGG unit was $1308 including shipping, which took 3 business days.

Work was done by Parker Power Systems in the DFW area:


The original estimate to repair the Kohler unit was about $6000, which included 10 hours labor at $92/hr. I was present for the removal of the generator slide, which took 4 hours, and the re-installation which took 12 hours. The remaining charged hours included servicing the Yanmar fluids and filters, plus replacement of the rear main seal, in addition to dismounting the Kohler. Mounting the CGG required modifying the generator mounts and also the control box to clear the exhaust. About 25 total hours were billed, which I think is fair. There was some confusion over the change from a brush-type to a brushless using the existing wiring harness, but a tech from CGG helped to sort it by phone. It should go faster for the next customer.

Bottom line:
Generator head..............$1308
Yanmar service...............$ 500
