I agree with the above... I have a pair of 20Kw Northern Lights
NL844LW2's that I use to provide ALL my power, and they replaced another
pair of NL854a's that finally died after 66,000 Hours (25 years) each.
Nothing like a good Lugger to keep you warm and toasty in the
winter......

No just good Periodic Maintainance and a little TLC.... If your not
getting over 30K Hours between InFrame's, you bought a Crap Genset in the
first place..... and deserve what you get.....

Lots of people just skip maintenance and let things fall apart. Others
have this weird denial that something is even broken or need attention in
the first place. Then they do the above. I don't think any of it makes
sense.

So what are the first things to wear out on a generator that's for prime
use, and what are something things to keep an eye on?

Usually it will be the Water Pump Bearing in the Cooling System Pump, and
then the End Bearing in Genend.  These are 10K Hour watch Items. Top Ends
every 20K hours, and InFrames around 40K hours.  I sold a 12Kw Brit
Lister that had 140K hours Total Time on it that was still running very
strong.  It had InFrames every 40K Hours,  and top Ends every 20K hours.
The only reason I got it, was the Telco Outfit that ran the Mountain Top
Site needed more power, when they installed a couple of Cell sites and
increased the load. Sold it to a close neighbor (Close = 10 Sq Miles) to
run his place, it now has 145k hours on it, and will outlast the
neighbor, by a generation or more......
