Just wondering if anybody has a spare Onan motor that they would be willing to part with? Preferably within about 1 hour driving distance of zip 02780. Thanks.

I have two spares, but not really wanting to part with either. Besides, unless you can drive at 1,000mph, then I'm more than an hour away!

Yeah, its a bit far, and we all know you love your Onans. Nearest one on ebay is Ohio, not happening. I don't need one badly, like as in life or death, but i want one to put in my suburban. Any ideas what shipping on one of these would be if i found a good one that had to be shipped?

I would guess so. A p218 isn't too bad, better than the non running HH120 it had.

Remember the crank output shaft is 1 7/16". Maybe only John Deere ordered their Onan engines with that large a crank output.

Thanks, i'll keep that in mind. The tractor will become a puller once i get a motor for it, so i should just need a single pulley on the crank to drive it around.

Around were I am you find a fair number of old Sears with Onans on them, people get rid of them just cause there old, might be easier to find a whole tractor with an Onan in it.

Yup, tried that, and nearest affordable ones in New York, a pretty fair distance. Theres others closer, but upwards of 400-500 bucks.
