Customer Question
I have a 60KW...

I have a 60KW Winco generator running on propane. After 2000 hours of operation, heard alarm. Oil pressure in start up was 50 psi. After twenty minutes of operation, pressure dropped to 20 pis.

Mechanic's Assistant: What's the make and model of the generator? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

It is a Winco. it is about a year old

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

First, I want to find out what caused this problem

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I had an oil sample analyzed. It showed the presence of trace sodium. I have learned that a common source of sodium in lubricating oil is a failure in the coolant system

I had the lube oil analyzed. It showed the presence of sodium. Further research indicated that the only source of sodium would be from the coolant system indicating a coolant system failure contaminating the lube oil.
