Rebuilding 2001 10KW Powertech Generator
My stator and rotor  are inop and need to be replaced (or possibly rebuilt?).  The diesel engine and other components are in excellent condition.   We use our gen during the summer on long weekends off grid at roadrace tracks around the NW.

Have you asked for the complete head assembly? They stocked it when I needed it.  Around $3,000.00.

When mine quit working about ten years ago, a local PT shop rewound the rotor. Most problems are repairable.

I replaced the entire pancake and regulator on my generator assembly last year.  You can order from Power Tech or from Marathon.

CANCEL THIS SUBJECT!

Talked with Parts at Powertech, referred to Jeff for my specific generator.    No Powerheads or necessary rebuild components for my unit.   Only option would be to find a Fabrication Shop with a qualified Engineer wiling to...

Good ideas-- thanks.

Visone had junk last time I looked, currently has 2 good units in stock.   Unfortunately only about 30% below new units that would come with warrantee.   Can buy new Kabota PDG units for same price as used from Visone.   Don't...

2600 hours is relatively low to be needing all they say yours needs. Same hours as mine.. Force me to buy a new unit to stay with their brand and it would likely be a Kubota driven Onan that replaces mine.Won't dance with the same clowns many times
