Re: 87 Wayne Lifeguard international S1700 CXXVI

I cleaned up the generator today some. what i thought was pitting was some kind of traction paint that was sprayed onto the generator at some point in the past. i didn't get it all off but its a good start. the paint came off easy with steel wool, the grime with alcohol. now i can see what I'm working with a little better.

Re: 87 Wayne Lifeguard international S1700 CXXVI

Just a suggestion--though I imagine you would do this anyway. Change the oil, clean out the float bowl and make sure the float and needle valve are working and before putting the new spark plug in add a couple of tablespoons of either diesel or auto trans fluid to the cylinder, hand crank it 5 or 6 times and wait over night before replacing the plug and trying to start the genny. The oil helps dissolve the rust that forms on the cylinder wall when the engine has sat for a long time. It won't take much rust to catch a ring and break a piston land and you sure don't want that to happen!

Thanks Trunt,
i will definitely clean out the carb and change the oil, air filter plugs etc. the generator has been turned over and was running at the RV surplus place, and a couple more times as they were demonstrating it to me, so any damage that was done probably happened at that time. so i should do a cylinder pressure test. good news is i have seen it produce electricity (incandescent light bulb), and they stated it powered up the whole RV they took it out of with both AC units running. i may need to fix the switch on the genny itself as that isn't working only the remote switch.

Re: 87 Wayne Lifeguard international S1700 CXXVI

Sounds like you should be OK then--I guess I thought the genny hadn't been running in some years and therefor might have rusted up, glad that wasn't the case.

Re: 87 Wayne Lifeguard international S1700 CXXVI

i built a duct from sheet metal for the refrigerator and installed it in the cabinet and installed the fridge. the heat from the refrigerator is coming out of the upper vent as it should. this was a real pain. every time i screwed something down like a side of the sheet metal something else would get out of alignment. i need to increase my sheet metal knowledge. screwing down the refrigerator screwed up my alignment for the front where i need to install the cabinet face. ill figure out something about that later.












looking up from the bottom vent at the upper frige coils inside the duct :


here is a photo of the refrigerator installed with duct. needs insulation and a front for the cabinet.
