|Bits and Peaces|
Here we can see most of the major components in 'raw' form. Of special note is the Spindle, this seems to have been a hard part for most folks assembling one of these Kubota generators. This part is readily available from Kubota, and allows one to use standard industry sheaves - as opposed to hacking something together.
Mocked up. Had more height then length available, so the frame allows for stacking.
|Bringing the early system aboard|
They early system is being brought aboard here. Though it is lacking the CAT pressure pump for the water maker, and still has the radiator attached, it does give a good view of the back side of the unit, with the drive belts.
|System in place|
|Early system installed. Note radiator, simple|
wrap in exhaust, and looking closely a simple
DC Mach pump to provide cooling water
for the exhaust. We did have issues keeping the
March pump primed given how little water the aft
of Viking Star draws.
Note radiator has been swapped out for Heat Exchanger.

|Single belt drives the CAT water pump|
(Out of picture at the top)
and the Jabsco raw-water pump via
the gray pulley at the bottom.
Dual drive is used for the Alternator.
|Belts to Alternator. |
I use Gates Green Stripe belts.
|Note alternator has been converted to use an external|
regulator. This conversion cover is a standard
Leece Neville part. See posting with part numbers.
|CAT pump with clutch.|
|All the knobs and switches. Note the Fine Custom Panel!|
