The item is good. It took 30 days to receive it. I sent 3 emails asking for update on delivery and never received an answer until I contacted my credit card company to investigate. Then it arrived.
I can't write a review till this has been in use in winter. Easy install though.
My Kohler installer (in Oklahoma) had never installed one of these carb heaters before. He couldn't figure out how it installed. Once I read the instructions, it was easy to tell where it fit on my Kohler 12RESV generator. I added some additional wire loom to cover the wires and protect them from the heat inside the generator housing. I consider this heater 'Murphy Insurance', even here in Oklahoma where it doesn't always get too cold during winter.
Works well in cool weather UP HERE IN Maine. Great site
