However, if the water pump failed due to high temperatures caused by a radiator that wasn't cooling efficiently, cooling the radiator by pouring cold water over it before the generator failed might have prevented the failure in the first place. Therefore.... if you are running your generator in conditions where air cooling might be compromised, think about ways to keep that generator cool *before* it has a heat related or air-flow related failure.
