In my "Better Days" I would do two complete engine inframe overhauls in a 40 hour week, every week; this included all the machine work, crankshaft work, assembly and runtime. Oh, how we long for the good old days.................
Thank you for sharing your knowledge with me. I did order a new fuel pump and will replace my fuel line also. I believe that will take care of my problem. Thank you SCG!!

Thanks for your help on my generator. I am moving to Florida next month and plan full time in my Winnebago. I have checked out the Osceola Forest and may dry camp there for a while. I see you stay at the Ocala Forest. Do you like it and have you stayed at Osceola before? Ocala is closer to mom but Osceola is closer to my brother and his family. Any tips would be appreciated.

Get a good solar system and the generator can go on vacation.
