Removal of Quietpact Generator

I have a Damon Astoria 2006 with diesel generator model #004270-3,Quiet Pact 75D. It has 475 hrs on it. The belts squeak sometimes, and i would like to get to look at them, and replace or adjust tension.Looks like you have to lower the whole unit to get to the access plates on the sides.The filters are accessed from the small plate that is easy to get to.Does anyone know how to get access to the belts.No one in my area can do it,?The book says the weight is 485 lbs.

I think the going rate is $250 to drop and $250 to put back in plus your problem. If I ever or when ever I need to I will buy a platform jack to let it down.

I did it the hard way. I finally found what you found, that it drops straight down to the ground and is supported by four bolts that come in from the top. I took out two bolts and put in lengths of threaded rod (1/4" is good enough). With two nuts in place to hold the weight, I took out the other two bolts and replaced them with threaded rods.

Just start unscrewing the nuts to lower the unit one turn at a time. Put some plywood on the ground to act as a skid area. Get it down to the plywood and slide it out. I had to use the jacks to raise the front of the coach, but it came out. Reverse all that to get it back in.

Wow: Just saved me $ 500.00, now can take the wife out on another trip.I'm sure it's just a belt or tension pulley as it works fine,just squeaks a little on start up for a few minutes.
I love this site!!!!! !!! Thanks everybody.

I wonder if anyone has tried a motorcycle lift a weight capacity of 1,500 pounds for less than $100 on harbor freight.

Back in "the old days", as a kid, I worked at a service station. We had a stick of BELT DRESSING that was about 2" diameter and was 10 or 12" long. You would hold it up against the inside of the belt while it was running and it would rub the wax or whatever it was onto the belt and would keep it from squealing.

You might investigate this.
