Thankyou Keithdandy. It seems you know what you're talking about and even read the bit about it being a DIESEL (no plugs or carb). It's dark and we're tired now but we will certainly look at the valves first thing in the morning. (the mist bit gave it away!!) thanks again.

Turn it off?

Seriously, you can try upgrading the exhaust (search for super trapp), or build a small enclosure to go around it (but still provide plenty of air flow).

BioDiesel has been known to quiet injector noise, but double check with manufacturer first. Howell's Diesel supplement can also help with injector noise, and keeps fuel from gelling in winter, has an algaecide in it, and is decent for fuel storage.

1. Heat dissipation, cooling and clogging of the lubrication system cause the diesel engine to overheat.

Blockage of radiator or pipeline: once the radiator and pipeline are blocked, the cooling water cannot circulate and the diesel generator will overheat.

Exhaust pipe blockage:When the exhaust pipe is blocked, when the diesel generator is running, the exhaust gas is not discharged smoothly, and some of the exhaust gas remains in the cylinder. When the next intake stroke is intake, there are more in the cylinder. Exhaust gas, fresh oil and gas mixture can not fully come in. When the spark plug is ignited, the flame propagates and burns slowly, and then burning time is long, forming a post-combustion. Parts that are in contact with gas, because of the long burning time, can not release heat, thus causing overheating, at the same time, due to the unsmooth exhaust gas emissions, the exhaust gas temperature rises significantly when exhausting, and the thermal load of the entire diesel generator increases, causing the generator to appear overheat.

Oil filter plugging: Under normal conditions, the oil of the diesel generator enters the diesel engine through the oil filter. Once the oil filter is blocked, the oil enters the lubrication points of the diesel engine only through the bypass passage. In this way, since the oil is not filtered, it is easy to bloc the oil pipeline, causing poor lubrication, the oil pipeline is blocked, and the heat generated by the friction coupler can not dissipated, causing the generator to overheat.

Oil screen plugging: The oil filter is placed at the inlet of the oil absorber in the oil sump to remove foam and prevent large slag from entering the oil pump. Once the oil filter network is blocked, the supply of lubricating oil to the diesel generator is interrupted, which will cause dry friction of the friction coupler of the diesel generator, which will cause the generator to overheat.

2. The cooling system and the lubrication oil system leak, causing the diesel engine to overheat.

Leakage of the radiator or pipeline: The radiator or pipeline leaks. Because the water storage capacity of the diesel tank is limited, the generator will overheat.

Oil pan or oil pump oil leakage: The oil pan or oil pump oil leakage is mostly caused by loose oil plug or gasket damage. The consequence of the oil sump or oil sump leakage is that the diesel generator oil supply is reduced or interrupted. Since the diesel generator reduces the cooling effect of the oil, the heat of each friction pair of the diesel generator cannot be transmitted, so that the generator is overheated.

You have not specified the make and model of the genset. Usually the normal type oil used for petrol /diesel engines can be used typically the grade 40.
Please look up on the manual to be more specific.

hi
on most over loads there is a button that you press in firmly and then let go /some of these can be set to reset themselves automatically

Make sure Voltage Regulator is mounted tightly to the Metal frame of the generator. It may be overheating and shutting down

Could be fuel flow issue or carburetor fouling. Replace fuel filter and add fuel treatment.

Or as this is an overhead valve engine, it requires periodic valve lash adjustment.
