Glad to hear you fixed your genset.
Many shops will recommend to replace assemblies rather then try to repair them. They make more money and have less chance of getting a call back. When I was in the auto business I saw this all the time. Technicians don't want to repair or adjust things that may eventually need to be replaced.
