Sure, bring your pallet jack, 2x4’s, saw to build cradle, easy deal.

I was kidding, but if anyone wants to do so, feel free! Can't it just be supported past the extension without complete removal to get at the radiator?

Got the side cover off and have a fan blowing in there for right now, it hasn't shut off and is running at 180F.

Dan Hunt helped pull my gen out..just far enough to replace the alternator, belt, and hoses.

I was wondering what that big intake or exhaust stack was in pic 1 until I saw it was a coffee cup in pic 2! Need more coffee. Thanks, thousand words in those pix.

I just finished changing alternator, belt, water pump, thermostat and all the hoses, you pretty much have to pull it out like the last pics show. Need to be on concrete and have a pallet jack or fork lift. I did it in about 8 hours, out change the parts back in.

If your rebuild is like mine, you may need to cut off some bolt heads and replace some of the rivnuts that are spinning in the sheet metal enclosure.

Thanks Jacob. Got a parts list with PNs and best place to run them down?

Best

Got lucky on my tear down all the bolts came out and the nut plates on the sheet metal was intact.


You do have to remove radiator and fan air box to change the belt and water pump. But while it was out it was worth changing it all.


I got all the parts from power tech. Just needed the serial number to the Kubota engine


They were very helpful .
