It does'nt have a belt. If it does'nt use oil, don't tear it down, should run 5000 hr. at least They are built like bricks and I'd replace the manifold, float kit, condensor and coil, the plugs and put it back in. Mine was destroyed last year in a barn fire, ran perfect and I miss it but am buying a diesel this fall.

Yes, you're right. It is a direct drive unit.

Be sure when you have it out to check everywhere( and I Mean everywhere) for mouse nests. I just had to pull the stator housing off of my 4500w unit and cleaned out a mouse nest that filled a 2 1/2gal bucket. Its a wonder it didn't catch fire. It did break up a bunch of plastic parts that I was lucky enough to find. They were getting in the engine and travelling down the cooling air passage to the alternator.

Fabbed a bunch of screens on the way back in to keep it from happening again.
