I'm curious if this would work on an Onan B43M? New OEM Nikki Carburetor Onan part # 146-0506
I thought it would be kind of a neat thing to have. :wink:

With AUTOMATIC Choke!!! ... 43ad0e1372
1 - 4 of 4 Posts sounds neat, but I'm about done with automatic/electric chokes.

It's not the same, sure, but I have been fighting the choke on my truck all winter. I'm about to just pull off the electric module and go with a manual cable. It doesn't fail unless the cable binds AND you won't burn your hand adjusting it (learned the hard way).

There's some difference between an Onan and a Ford 460, but I imagine the principals are the same. If the rate at which the spring expands doesn't match the rate at which the engine warms it just won't do what you want it to.

On the other hand, the listing says it will work on a B series. I'd say there's a reason they aren't all that popular though.

My rant is over. Hopefully someone who knows what they are talking about comes along soon.
Its really for an RV where you dont want to run the cable to the console but still want to start it from there
Points well taken. I can relate. :facepalm: I just thought it would be different. Can't afford that anyway. :thumbdown:
