they said it could be 60 to  90 minutes= 100 to 150 labor plus parts

this sound about right ?
thanks

When I perform an annual maintenance I plan on roughly 2 hours. These are the areas I address, remove battery & clean posts and terminals, check the float, cranking, and running voltage of 12 volt system, check electrolyte level and add distilled water as needed. Adjust the valve lash with a cold engine, replace spark plugs, air filter, oil and oil filter after engine warm-up. Check and tighten wire terminals at the generator terminal strip and main line breaker, re-level the generator as needed, check transfer switch wiring, remove N1 fuse to initiate an automatic start and transfer, measure voltage, frequency, and amps at the switch to verify generator output. Labor and parts will have a wide range depending on who and where, we use the Generac maint. kits as it reduces the confusion for our office folks who know VERY little about generators.

im  afraid of having anyone in the house with the covid going on , and the TS is switching ok now.
and i doubt they will relevel it since i was told they install it titled forward on purpose to aid in the oil change process.
which is absurd imo after reading things on here .
i think all im getting is oil/ plugs/ filter x 2.
battery is sealed optima red , so no time on the labor there .
not sure if they do that valve lash. i have 70 hours now mostly exercise  since dec 2015 install.
would you recommend it  ?
thanks again BS

Generator should be installed level. Valves adjusted after 25 run hours.

I adjust the valves on each annual, I find even after 4 - 5 years they still need small adjustment as the parts wear in, after that they seem to stay pretty good.
