UPDATE: Well the first day back in the shop and got the Onan torn down. Lots of normal wear/carbon etc, but no evidence of oil starvation or a catastrophic problem Cylinder walls very (too) smooth and rings all free.

Does have some unhappiness on the crank journals and seemed the rod caps had LOTS of side-play. 2 of the 4 bolts for adapter mount on the flywheel face are broken off, but all-in-all a good builder.--- :thumbs:

Well, not all is well in paradise. The Onan needs a lot of work to make it right-Crank is not usable- Looks like I'm in the same quicksand as all the other Onan owners-I feel a big SUCKING sound growing near my wallet. :mad2:

Sorry to hear this, Lee! I can get a phone # of a guy who has lots of parts for these. But, they are expensive, for sure. Some 'GOOD' engine machine shops may be able to build that crank up and turn it back to spec. That's a possibility!

Curiosly, I just sold my eutoloy torch that would do just that :spanka: I 'm impressed with these Onan rods though. They show minor wear and I suspect some bearing material was cast into them-don't know for certain, but they were tougher than the crank!!!
