Onan generator battery terminal sheared
While at Quartzsite, one item on my to-do list was to check the battery terminal connections on the rear panel of my 10kw generator. I turned off both the chassis battery and house battery master switches and I pulled at the gen. Crawled underneath and removed the cables to clean and burnish them with a wire brush. In the process of reinstalling them, the negative/ground stud sheared off about half way up the bolt. Dang! Removed one of the washers to expose enough thread to secure the cable. Has anyone had to replace the terminal block before? The part is available and reasonably priced, but some folks say the entire generator has to be removed in order to access the back of the terminal block. That would really be an extra layer of difficulty for me. Any ideas?
