In parallel of working with the engine, we also renovated the generator for our sailboat. The generator we have is a Zeise Liliput Multi Power. Our main focus during the winter was the engine and we just wanted to do what was necessary with the generator.
As everything else on the boat, the generator had been abandoned for ten years. We suspected from the start that the heat exchanger would be quite dirty, so we removed the heat exchanger to clean it.
There were no problems running the generator, so there is not much that we need to do. But what we will do is:
- Changing the fuel hoses
- Changing the driving belts
- Paint the covers for the generator
- Change oil and coolant
We are still waiting for the ice to melt in the marina were we have the boat, but we hope that we will be able to lift the engine back in to the boat next weekend. To see all our posts about renovation, see the category Renovation, and for the posts about the engine, see category Engine.
