I used this head to replace a generator head on a Troy Bilt 7000 watt generator that had gone bad. This is on the standard Chinese copy of the Honda 390/ 420 cc motor with the 'Asian' (Chinese) taper. It is precisely machined and is a bolt on operation. It's probably not for someone who is not at least a passable small engine mechanic, however. If you're not particularly small-engine adept, it may be a good idea to pay someone for the installation.
The first real problem you'll likely encounter during the installation is getting the old rotor off. Especially If it has been on for a while. In my experience, the surest way to get it done is to lock the flywheel on the motor (a 3/8 ratchet extension slipped into the groove provided on the flywheel does nicely), then apply a three foot aluminum pipe wrench to the old rotor and twist it. I've had rotors so frozen to the crankshaft that it took well over a couple hundred ft. pounds of torque to break it free. Once it is off, be sure to THOROUGHLY clean the crank shaft taper to a polish and apply a thin coat of axle grease before installing the new rotor supplied. Your single biggest worry after that will be torquing down the four long roughly 8 inch bolts that hold the whole thing together correctly. The trick is not to have uniform torque on the bolts..... it's to ensure that the gap between the rotor and the stator is uniform all the way around. If it's not and the rotor rubs against the stator when you start the engine, you've just ruined the gen head.
Also, on some generators you are repairing, the bell housing is part of the motor end cap and cannot be replaced. That's okay. You can use it instead of the bell housing provided.Read more ›
