Customer Question

I recently purchase a boat with a Westerbeke Marine Gasoline Generator.

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes boat issues seem like they'll be really complicated, but end up being easy to fix. The Marine Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so the Marine Mechanic can help you best.

I was attempting to obtain a service manual to learn what parts I should purchse to get the generator ready for the summer.
