Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Generator exhaust

michael winand

The new genset is the same as the Onan regarding the isolation mounting and the electrical connection. It has a alternator instead of the generator for charging the 12v battery. Control panel where the Onan remote  start was, giving temperature, oil pressure, amps output /load Ect. 
 The retired Onan with 1000hrs was nonfunctional, so we knew that before purchasing. Removed the head due to lack of compression in 2 cylinders.  Found rust in cylinder  and a slight chance of color in the fuel pump housing. I thought it was not a good idea to rebuild the engine. 
We are just trying to get the best install of the new one. 
Thanks for your help

Hi, I am installing a new genset into a super maramu 2000.

The engine is a kubota with a 50mm hose going to the vetas water lock. On the outlet of the water lock the hose reduces to 40mm. This is how the original is installed. It has a reducer 50 to 40mm glued  into the water lock.

Can anyone help with the reasons why the hose is reduced in diameter? 
The generator supplier  advised to have a 50mm hose going on the water lock outlet.
