Northern lights 5 kw parts
I've got a low hours, non running 5kw northern lights. It's in my office and I'm leaving for 5 weeks on Thursday. When I get back, do you want to buy a part, or the whole thing? I'd love to sell it whole to somebody mechanically inclined, but if there's only interest in parts, then parts it is.
Here's what I can tell you: I put new rings in it and it still has low compression in #3. #2 cyl isn't great, but if 3 was the same, it would be running. The fuel pump is pumping, it's got new injectors ( and a set of old ones). The head was recently machined by a well regarded local shop (Simplex).
The head is still off of it. I painted a bunch of the bits while I had it apart and she looks pretty good. If I had a shop to lay it all out in, I'd be doing it myself. The juice just ain't worth the squeeze for me though. In the end, it's more electricity (and weight) than we need. Even if I got it running, I'd flip it for one of the 3.5kw generators out there.
