I have found a man locally who does nothing but rebuild Onans ( they have become his hobby and love). I will be trading a Linamar LX790 with a broken rod and will (99% certain) trade a running P218 (big oil leaker).
Once I get the B48 back in the tractor hopefully it will be full of new life and bring the tractor to its original running performance. I can also get back to the correct electric clutch, and be able to hook up the PTO drive shaft (the P218 is raised a 1/4 inch to allow the starter solenoid to clear the motor mount).
One thing I am going to add is a oil pressure gauge to monitor the engine and if I can find a small analog tach that will run on this engine I may add that as well.
My goal is to see 1750-2000 hrs on this engine life, and by then I may be to old to care and someone else can have the old beast.
I want to thank everyone who chimed in on my questions in the past and will keep the group informed if there is an interest. And while I wait on the engine to finished in its overhaul I will get back to the Panzer restoration. Its been to dang hot to enjoy working in the shed this past month and August isnt looking much better.
