Hey all, I hate to ask this question again but I would like to hear opinions about my 4390's stator going bad. After I tore it down I found that the air intake was full of snow. Could a plugged air intake make the stator overheat and melt the windings? Has anyone modified their generator to overcome this potential problem? I have seen the pictures posted here with all of the panels taken off of a 5244 that shows the air intake on the back instead of from the bottom like my 4390.

JB: Take the stator to a motor rebuild shop. They can look at the stator and most likely tell you what caused the meltdown. When we open up big air conditioning compressor motors, we can usually determine the cause of motor winding failure.

Cold air intakes are a common modification because they tend to be relatively cheap, easy to install, look good and often improve engine sound significantly. All in all, a must have in every tuning project. For those of you who are totally sure of installing a new intake system for your car, you should realize one fundamental point before you modify anything on your ride. As a rule of thumb, always ask why the stock setup is the way it is. Engineers invest numerous hours designing an intake system to be the way it is. Stock set-ups are typically designed foremost with noise restriction in mind. In addition, they are also designed to preserve your stock air filter by protecting it from harmful elements such as water, dust and other road debris. When you replace your stock intake unit, note that you are compromising these important attributes. You should also realize that your power band will be affected as well. A cold air intake will often improve upper power band at the cost of diminishing power in the lower rev range. However, power gains typically vary in the range of 0-15 HP in the top end. In some forced induction applications, you might even be harming your power band all together. If you're not after high end power gains, you probably shouldn't get a cold air intake system.

This seems to have absolutely no bearing on the OP's topic. Should I delete the post?

Unless "summit" has started selling hot rod parts for Generac generators, I think so.
