Can’t help but commenting.

This is a STEAL no matter what’s wrong with it (if it’s an engine issue)

These are the best generators out there.

Any clues on Kw, or should we guess?

Re: Northern lights diesel generator 8kw

8kw, it's in the title.

Resolute, can you get a pic of the mfg plate showing the model. Is it....?

Too bad it's to big for me, I 'm looking for 6kw (that'll barely squeeze through the locker.

Relays been replaced? My friend carries four and replaced them all. I just bought the 9kw, that’s my luck.

Re: Northern lights diesel generator 8kw

Without a clue as to what's wrong, or year, or model, and to a lesser extent actual hours (just replaced a 5kw Westerbeke --253 hrs, bad gen end), --- caveat emptor.
