Looks great man.
Lol. That’s called fall here…. We’ve still been in the mid 90s or betterCleaned up the laundry/storage room again yesterday
contacted a drywall guy to come look at a area that needs fixed.
barn is next but I’m waiting until it cools down. This high 80’a and high humidity is a ass kicker
Looks pretty damn good considering what it has been through! Hope it starts and runs. You prolly know this but will want to check the generator too for any issues, corrosion etc.Well, didn't do all of this today - about 2 weeks into this project so far. And it's not "my property" yet. Hopefully it will be part of my property before next hurricane season. Got tired of all the power outages over the past few years. Hurricane Ida was just the one that broke the camel's back. Was asking a friend some questions about whole-house generators and he said, I have that old one from the answering service. Pulled it out when we shut down the business. It hasn't run in 10+ years... you want it? I just CANNOT resist a project I guess. Sure!!!
Anyway, it's an old surplus military 20 KW diesel generator that's hasn't been run in 10+ years and has also been sitting out in the weather for longer than that. It's pretty rough looking at the moment but I have the case completely off now, the fuel tank out and cleaned. The radiator out - plan to soak it with vinegar. Blew fuel cleaner thru the fuel lines tonight. As soon as I get the radiator squared away, I'll put it back on temporarily, fill it with water and try to start the motor. If it runs and I can make power (electricity) I will pull the motor / generator off the skids (only 5 more bolts to get it loose), set it aside and bring all the case and skids to the sandblasting place. Then it's paint and reassembly time. Might be months before I finish this one.
