Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Onan Generator issue

Check the sensor on the exhaust( back of the engine}. Mine came apart. If the engine exhaust overheated I would never have known it.


I keep spares for all senders , gaskets, alternators, starters, fuel injectors, radiator caps, pumps, impellers, filters

Custom hoses, and more for both the engine and generator.

Ps you can buy some knurled brass bolts from McMaster Carr and replace the bolts on the yanmar raw  water pump.

Eric. Did exactly as you suggested. The sensor was completely filled with rust except for a pinhole into which some water entered. Steve Davis ("Aloha") came over and removed it, cleaned it, Dremeled off the corrosion, put it back on, and started the generator. Seems to work perfectly now though I'm soon going to buy an extra sensor. Thanks for your advice! Spot on!
