The Entec 4 kva 120v AC single
cylinder 3,600 rpm diesel farymann engine
has 1,235 hours. Did a top head overhaul
and am planning to go to some remote
places ie raja ampat, tonga
, solomon, fiji
The vibration of this unit is quite intimidating. The engine
will give out some black smoke when I load up to 24 amps. Or I should be satisfied with 20amps no black smoke which is just below the 70% of 33amps max.
I am a bit concerned about the durability of this unit and was undecided whether I should spend boat bucks to get a new unit while I am in the marina.
I hear that diesel
engine last forever, well almost. Read one thread in SSCA.org that his Entec lasted 4,000 hours!
I like to hear what is your experience on diesel gensets? How long do they last?
Appreciate any comments or experience you may have with gensets.
ps. I give Thumbs Up to Entec support Doug +13868721473 very helpful.
