Onan Generator maintenance / engineers!

Ok, so today we got a break in the weather and I decided to go out and service my Onan RV QD 8000 Diesel generator, I was going to change the oil and filter, only changed the oil for the moment, someone thought it was a good idea to mount a bracket over the cover that you have to remove to gain access to the fuel and oil filters! this bracket has a roller mounted to it, BUT ITS RIVETED TO THE FRAME UNDER THE GENERATOR! Am I missing something???

Also, the frame under the generator covers the COOLANT DRAIN CAP! Smdh........

Still not sure how Iím going to go about gaining access to the oil and fuel filter just yet......Click image for larger version

Looks like it has bolts in addition to the two pop rivets?
Assuming that bracket is not holding up your generator, I would cut the Two pop rivets.
I'm not sure what you mean by it has a roller mounted to it.

Maybe use a star wrench To completely remove the cover then.

Open or close the generator door enough either way to clear that bracket.

^^^^^^ What he said. Slide the generator so the door clears. Squeeze the two buttons, the other side lifts out. Once you figure it out it takes less than 5 seconds.

There's also a spark arrester to clear out.

There's a bunch of REALLY good Youtube videos on servicing these units.
