removed my generator

OK I was told to replace the water pump belt on my generator It as 1100 hours on it, so I started by removing the front bumper and got the generator out of the coach and I was very surprized about some things that I found, the first thing was the second I removed the gennerator found a tap screw that was stiking out on the uper left end corner the screw was going righ true an ac line (dash ac) the screw was a good half an inch into the line I cant belive the line waasn't leaking, the second thing was the big wires where they conect to the generator they were lose I never had any issues with it but in the future I would have problems, the other thing was that the water pump belt was just ready to break it was missing some teeth, while I was there I also replced the thermostat and a small hose at the pump that usually cracks, with all said and done I'm glad that I did this work aand I advice to all to get this belt replaced, just tought that I would share the experience with all of you.

Did you change the coolant also and put in the correct coolant for a diesel engine?

Sounds like you did a good job of preventive maintenance, with good timing before you could have had a serious problem.
