Additional Information

Our units are sold wholesale or retail. We cater to the other shop who prefer our custom rebuilt units to the one from auto part stores and also the local GM and import dealers (Toyota-Honda) who buy from us regularly for the units they don't have or can't get (very new or very old). We still stock and rebuild many generators (!) for the Ag and antique/classic car crowd. Custom rebuilding and modification of the units for higher power is also a part our daily work.
