Genset Woes

Where Next?

The major chore for the day was to get the genset working. It has had an intermittent fault ever since the collision, which about two days ago became permanent.  A major obstacle to fixing it was that four bolts were seized and, despite coaxing with an impact driver, simply would not budge, consequently I had to drill their heads off.

Eventually I got the thing all apart, during which process I managed to lose some parts over the side causing me no end of frustration, but which fortunately are not critical to getting the thing going again. I managed to get to run for less than a minute, but it is now dead again. The next step will be to replace the spark plug.


All is well.
