My name is ***** ***** I am going to assist you with this.
That depends on what you need the genset for.
If you need 3 phase power, the4 BFA will not work for you.
If you need the genset for the PTO to run your hydraulics, and the BFA does not have an extended rotor, it will not work.
But if you only need 120V single phase power, and no hydraulics, then the BFA will work.
But depending on what is wrong with the BGD, I would seriously look at keeping/repairing it. The BGD is a much better genset than the BFA.
