Hey guys, (Gary, Carl, Russ and gang)
Hope all of you are well,
As most of you know, recently I replaced the exhaust manifold on the that genny
Then, a week later, the generator quit and it turned out to be the lift pump. Had it replaced and she was back to running good again
She's got 3000 hours on her, I run this thing for about 12-15 hours a day quite frequently and right now, it appears that she's running very good
Here's the problem. When I start it now, it blows out a good amount of "white smoke" for approximately 45 seconds. Sometimes, it will blow white for up to a minute give or take. There will also be a smell of oil associated with it.
Additionally, when she starts, it seems a little rougher than it has in the past, but once she's all warm, it seems to level itself off and sound normal again.
Any suggestion? Could this be a sign of a potential larger problem looming?
I'm going to throw this out there, but could it possibly be that my "glow plug" is going bad? Do glow plugs go bad? Do they need replacing at some point?
As always, I look forward to hearing your thoughts
Currently, Tina, Otis and I are up in Concord, NH on the way the White Mountains to ride the tramway and check out the Flume up at Cannon Mountain.
Beats sitting in a cubicle wouldn't you say!?
