    I cannot remember if there is a Napa or WIX filter on it at the moment to be honest.

    Re: Big 50 Diesel - maintenance and "restoration"

    It looks like I will have to replace the generator end bearing after all. It is very slowly spinning in the housing at idle. Anyone have any experience doing this?

    I got to the bearing today. Not fun at all. Had to disconnect damn near half the wires at the front of the machine.

    I dont think the housing is going to need any work. Just new bearing with some green loctite.

    Sounds good...it sounds quieter than my Deutz air-cooled diesel!

    Re: Big 50 Diesel - maintenance and "restoration"

    It is surprisingly quiet. Compared to the 16hp single cylinder briggs on my service truck.... well there is no comparison.

    Air-cooled deutz engines are good too. We have a water pump powered by a 3 (or maybe 4?) cylinder deutz. A little louder than this continental, but not too bad.

    Got the end of the generator back together. Machine shop made a new steel insert for the aluminum generator end bearing housing.

    I'll wait a couple days for the 680 to cure before I run it. Just slip ring/brush work and lots of wiring to go.

    Pretty much done. Murphy setup needs some work.

    That welder just about fills that pickup. Looks like enough room for 50 feet of lead and a lunch box.

    Do you have airbags on your truck? Your suspension is taking that better than I thought stock springs would do. Looks great!

    Its going to be a little tight. I'm going to build a skid for the bed until I buy a newer F350. Skid will have the welder, 200ft leads, 100ft torch, and a bedside toolbox on each rail right behind the cab. At least that's my current plan.

    Thanks. No airbags yet... I was surprised too. I scaled it at 8,020 lbs with the welder full of diesel, and the diesel tanks on the truck mostly full. I think I weighed this truck before at 6,300 so the welder weighs about 1,700. Its going to end up very near the GVWR.

    Nice,

    Burned right in to that heavy plate/blob, no shielding gas needed!

    Thats the beauty of big FCAW-S wires.

    Not as nice looking as 7018 or even dualshield, but its fast, strong, and doesn't need any shielding gas.

    I drove through your area this morning, going to and from Yuba City to visit a friend. Didn't see any ducks.

    Re: Big 50 Diesel - maintenance and "restoration"

    Not sure on the first project Blocker. I think I'll be replacing a couple pins & bushings in one of our fold up disks this winter, and maybe I'll use this machine.

    There are some ducks around deafman. Not too many yet though.

    I'm pretty happy with how it's turned out. Most likely I'll start in on building a skid for it pretty soon.
