Welcome!

Assuming it is the original Onan, you should speak with Boomer. He can talk you through the process and ensure you get the right parts. Boomer's Used Onan Engine Parts
Yes, I spoke with Bob, he is kind of out of the business (semi retired) and does not have anything at this time. He suggested that I submit something on this site??? Hoping to hear something from someone else. Thanks.

Well that plain friggin sucks! I guess all legends have to hand up their hat sometime but still. Probably your best bet for a good short block is a genset or welder unit. There is a little work involved in switching over the right parts from yours but it has been done many times. If you look around, a good generator /engine can sometimes be had for less than rebuilding a motor from scratch. A genset engine usually had an easy life as it only ran at 1800 rpms due to the fact that Onan used alternators to make power rather than generators.

Welcome to the CCI forum Tim H. Sorry to hear that Bob "boomer" is retiring, I've had some interesting conversations with him in the past. I'll have to give him a call and chew the fat! It would be great to hear about your Onan and where the problem with it is?

Keep the Peace
