Section Ill. REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION OF MAJOR COMPONENTS
a. The engine and generator are rigidly bolted together at the engine flywheel housing. This assembly is
mounted on the skid base at three points, the front engine trunnion and the two generator feet. Rotation and
cooling of the generator is accomplished by a blower and coupling disc assembly which is bolted to the engine
flywheel. This arrangement allows the engine and generator to be removed as an assembly or independently of
b. To remove the engine, it is first necessary to remove the radiator and shell assembly and disassemble the
front housing assembly, rear housing assembly, and relay table (including relay table components, see Section
XII, Chapter 3). Engine accessories may either be removed or remain on the engine during removal.
c. To remove the generator, remove the rear housing assembly with cooling grille as a single unit. The relay
table with the two side brackets can be removed as a unit by removing four bolts at base of side brackets and
disconnecting wiring harness. Prior to loosening the bolts which couple the generator housing to the engine
flywheel housing, the engine supporting bracket must be installed between the engine rear lifting bracket and
the center support assembly.
d. In rare cases, it maybe beneficial to remove the engine and generator as an assembly. To accomplish
this, the housing assembly must be disassembled completely (a combination of the disassembly of
sub-paragraphs b. and c. above) and the center support assembly removed. The lifting mechanism must be so
arranged as to support both the engine and the generator to avoid undue stress on the engine-generator
