Engine power

Does a 34hp engine have enough spare power to run a travel pack generator of say 3.5 kva?

WW says:

Although the Travel power generator will take power from the engine, you should have more than enough power with a 34HP engine to drive it whilst cruising at canal speeds. In fact you may find that you end up using the engine more efficiently with the Travel Power as more of the engines capability is utilised. If you need the full power of the engine on a river for example, you may need to either not use it, or to be prepared switch it off.

That sounds a fair estimate.

I'm told that fitting travel pack to an Isuzu 34hp engine is difficult and will cost about £4000, is this an accurate estimate in your opinion?
