It is important to start with a general inspection of the condition of the engine, focussing on the water circuit and the alternator, not forgetting aspects such as the oil level, of both the engine and the injection pump.
To prevent problems with overheating, the radiator water level is also checked, the generator set must always function with a temperature that does not exceed 40º under any circumstances. On the other hand, the diesel oil levels should also be checked, as well as that they do not produce leaks of oil or water with the engine running.
Another vital part is to check the belts from the pump and alternator are tightened and in good condition. We would finish the mechanical check of the machine by reviewing the condition of the transfer pumps.
