What was your oil pressure at the time of failure? What is it now if you start the set? I assume the oil level is OK, right? and you do have a LOP switch to shut down the set when the pressure drops too low and hopefully it functioned properly.Well, hot day, and the cooling fins on the engine are badly corroded similar to the image posted by JohnnyC. Before the unit shut down on it's own, RPM dropped from 1800 to about 1600, ran like that for a couple minutes then shut down.
