NL Oil Filter Substitute?
Bought a new fuel and oil filter for my 5kw Northern Lights generator this morning. Drove from the shop to the boat. Started the genset to warm it up before the change. Turned on the A/C and water heater to give it a good load. While it warmed up I bailed the dinghy and got the filters from the truck. Also chatted with a friend on the hard.
Once back on board I shut down the genny and prepared to drain the oil. Of course now I can't find the filters. Spent the better part of an hour searching the boat, truck and retracing my steps. Friend on the hard swears I had the filters in my hand while speaking to him. Early onset at 59 and a half?
Friend had filters from a previous generator, NL 24-02001. A Google search indicates my 24-08001 is a decendant of the 24-02001. The 02 is shorter and fatter but the rubber gaskets match up. I put it in but will replace it if that is the consensus.
Going for a CAT scan tomorrow……
