Second the comment on carrying a spare fuel solenoid. While I have always carried a spare there have been times where it took me a month to get the correct replacement.

You should read carefully the manual on adjusting the fuel solenoid and for ease of adjustment in the future tape instructions to the inside of the sound cage indicating which way to turn the nut to increase/decrease the rpms.

My 8kw Westerbeke is set for 61.2 hertz with only the house load. With two chargers and the waterheater it will drop to 58 hertz for 15 minutes and then climb from there.
