Default Four Free Generators

I picked up 4 free rv style generators

1 onan emerald 3
1 onan commercial
2 hondas ev6010

I just got them home, don't know a thing about them. I gave a guy info about where he could get a a old Oliver dozer for free , he asked me if i wanted the generators. I need them like a hole in the head but what the heck...

I don't know anything about them and nether did he. So I'll see when I get a chance. Here's some pics of the gens.

those honda ev generators are very compact, they are prone to failure if in high moisture areas.

there is a guy on youtube something like pinnella power product, he has a series of videos on how to work on them

Onans likely have electronic AC voltage regs , clean slip rings before running to protect the $$$ reg.
Don't know but might not be a bad idea for other gens too.

He had a flat bed rolloff with a hydraulic winch on it , he got as close as he could to it and pulled out 100' of cable . Put 2 hooks on it and the cable ,put a couple of tarps with weights over the cable and pulled it . After 10' or so he had to run a couple of chains from the front of the truck to a tree then started pulling again. They had to keep stopping and shovel the dirt away from the front of the tracks. But after 25 30' the tracks started moving ,so after that it was easier to winch it. All toll it was 4-4.5 hours of work.
He's got the engine apart already , he had to break the pistons apart to get them out.
