Upgrading your marine alternator to an Electromaax high-output Cruiser or super-high-output GenMaax model, transforming your propulsion engine into a back up generator at the same time, is the best project you can undertake on your sailboat or yacht. All of our marine alternators/generators create sufficient electricity while you're away from the dock to give you the power to charge batteries and run electronics, lighting, windlass, AC appliances and your water maker.

WGS Remote Oil Filter Kits


WGS’s remote mounted lube oil filter system was originally designed for industrial engines with limited or no access to the engine’s oil filter cartridge. This system allows the original OEM filter cartridge to be relocated to a more accessible location. The remote filter system installs simply by spinning on the adapter with seal to the engine’s filter block. To ensure proper lubrication each adapter and filter head is custom machined in accordance to an engine’s specific thread and oil-flow specifications.


The remote mounted filter system can also be used in combination with a larger filter cartridge to increase the engine’s oil-filter service interval.
