55 kW Diesel Generator | Bare Bones
This bare-bones generator is designed for the do-it-yourselfer. We did the hard part. We carefully aligned and mated the alternator to the engine. We torqued the stainless steel fasteners between the alternator flex plate and the engine flywheel. The housing was also fastened together using high-quality stainless steel, socket head cap screws.
Vibration isolators and hardware is included.
The muffler is included and can be mounted in a few directions to fit your needs better.
What you have, is a world-class Perkins engine and alternator ready to mount and use for your own prime or standby power application.
When you receive the generator, you will need to add engine oil and coolant. Connect the provided fuel lines to a diesel fuel supply and the battery cables to your battery. The wiring is left up to you, this is a DIY package. All manuals can be downloaded from us online.
AC Load Connections - Be sure to follow all electrical safety codes and consult with a professional as required.
AURORA designs and builds diesel generators complete with auto-start controllers, fuel tanks, outdoor weather resistant and attenuated sound enclosures and more. This generator is just the bare bones for those who don't need anything else and want to save some money doing some work themselves.
