Need some help with an AC2 generator unit
« on: December 29, 2011, 07:07:38 AM »
Need a bit of help with a unit I picked up.
I picked up a 6.5 kw unit with an Ac2 diesel motor. It came with a spare Ac1 unit for parts.
What I have to do is remove some gears from the gear box on the Ac1 and use them on the Ac2.
Some one mentioned on another site that the Ac2 rotates in the opposite direction than the Ac1 unit.
I don't have the repair manual yet.

The Ac1 has no bottom plate and I can see the valves in the top of the cyl and what position they are in.
The Ac2 I can remove the plate to match up the the top stroke to one of the cylinders however I don't know which cylinder to match, should I match the cylinder closest to the gear box or the  cylinder furthest away from the gear box.
I see the timing marks on the two gears that I will need to match.
