Looking for one of the Onan Elite single cylinder OHV engines for a project.  Looking for both the horizontal(came in cub cadet 2140ags) and vert shaft, came in some WH/Toro, usualy has Toro on it and not Onan but looks unlike any briggs or other common brand.  Wanting to build a short frame WH with an Onan and a vert for my neighbor using Onan engines.  Running or non running are acceptable.  If you have other Onans that you just need rid of but dont want to trash, I will take those as well.  Thanks   Mike

Those Elite may be hard come by. They were only assembled by Onan for a few years. Happy hunting.

Will parts be hard to get due to the small production runs?  I've never seen the Elite designation on a mower engine.

The vert shaft was used on the WH's around the same era as the 520h's were being made.  The horizontal crank version I have only seen in the one Cub Cadet model, but I have heard they were used elsewhere as well.  Definatly not a common engine but same source for parts, Cummins/Onan or Stens.   I had a chance to get one from a cub for a song and a dance, but passed on it. Really wish I would have grabbed it back then.   I know they ran well in the cubs, seldom was there an issue with those engines, but the rest of the tractor ususaly fell appart around the engine.    Mike

I have an Onan 140 motor out of a cub cadet that I would sell. I was going to put it in one of my older cub cadets. I was told it ran strong but need starter rebuild and no air filter or cover. It has PTO clutch on it. Can text pictures if interested. $100 Jerry
