ctdhombre, the boil-over happened soon after installation and testing.

The engine ran until it overheated and shut down.

The $5,000 "repair" that I mentioned is the cost of draining some of the coolant and topping off with ELC concentrate and some additives to bring the anti-corrosion additives up to normal levels.

The repair has been delayed because of it's cost.

That's one tough Genset! Usually with that kind of load the alternator will loose sync and your voltage will sag resulting in a major brown-out.

ebaker, Terry tells me "seb" is sebacate, and "toly" is tolytriazole.

Mr. Boston, it is a tough genset.
