Put me in the "stay close to original" camp unless you own a boatyard or a machine shop.

Sorry Eric, I have a Westy generator. I have had horrible experiences with a dealer, distributer AND the front office. My experience showed me they have a disconnect in the understanding that the end user is the ONLY customer. Not the boat manufacturer, the parts distributer or dealer.

BTW, great generator, until you need something. The $207 3cylinder head gasket stressed my head gasket.

Yahhhh I see ...

Yes I hear Westerbroke isn't the best but I mostly put them on my no list because they had an aluminum manifold .. as most of the others. They had a cast iron Kabota that turned 2500rpm and was a bit too big. Really wanted that one but shortly they dropped it from the lineup.
Re the $200 head gasket did you try tractor dealers? Prolly woul'da had one for $50.

I'm getting my oil filters from NAPA now. Wonder how good they are? I usually get OEM from my engine supplier. Funny though as they give me Isuzu oil filters. My favorite engine is Isuzu from Yukon Engines.
