Onan Diesel Question
OK -- I know this is a powerstroke forum and I do have a powerstroke but I also have an old (1984) Onan generator -- 4 cyl diesel -- and I need some help with a general diesel question. I recently had a power failure and had to use my generator (12KW). I also recently installed a geothermal heating system which pulls a lot of amps (70+) to start. I forgot to turn off the furnace and put a huge load on the generator -- it overheated the diesel engine. Now it smokes all the time -- even when it is warmed up. Did I screw up the engine?
