The shields look like they'll work for sure.
Is that carb force fed air from the blower housing or just breaths in any where? My friends WH with the Onan 16hp has a short rubber pipe between the blower housing and the air box.

The 12HP Kohler Command I worked on all week had that same setup! It's on a WH 312.

Cut some grass with the WH 10 Auto to get some hours on it and get Sabill though it before winter. Was the only one standing around with a deck on it right now. Everything else is getting a plow mounted on it for Mike's plow days.
Man, That old Wisc. 10 sounds like a 2 cylinder 830 JD on stiariords.

I mowed yesterday and like Olcowhand caused a dust storm. Then I swept the yard trying to get some of the hay up from the last time I mowed. Had a lot of leaves to chew up and sweep up as well and it was just a drop in the bucket compared to what is still on the trees.

Cleaned up and primed another batch of parts for the 990

I am attempting to put a new head gasket on a John Deere F930. I have it all apart and was hoping to download an Onan 24 hp service manual from here. Unfortunately the forum says I have downloaded twice today, which is not true since I am new, and could not do anything until registered. I was hoping to get at this today but without manual am hesitant. Also if anyone has service manual for John Deere F930 would be nice since I know nothing about servicing a hydrostatic.
thanks

Just moved a couple GT's to the barn, so I could use the spot they were in to back in my 12' trailer full of vinyl siding for the house. Due to the siding job, not any time for GT's for me at the moment.

Please try again, I made a couple of changes to the settings, hopefully this helps as you are not the only one that has received that message.

That STINKS! Hope there isn't too much damage. I know you have the parts lying around, but that doesn't make it any less frustrating!

Not in my experience. I had a misalignment issue on my WH 314. I had just put on a new drive belt ($40 about 10 years ago) and I shredded it in about 2 weeks! I was not a happy camper!
