Yeah, the one I found is inline vertical. Dimensions are not what I'm looking for though OD 18"x18"x20". It would be pretty cool on an old hoodless gear GT though... as long as you could hook up to the crank.

You guys evidently don't have an "engine shoehorn"?  (torch/plasma cutter/sawzall/welder/extra metal, etc....) :smilewink:

LOL... Shoot, I'm the type that I would rather that big honking diesel just set out in the open for everyone to see!

 

I think I might see what the crank looks like. I know right now it's hooked up to a lovejoy and is turning a gen head.

More than likely it's a standard style crank being it has a lovejoy on it.

Many of the Onan diesels are hard to get parts for.  I looked into the DJB as well, and you'll run into some price/scarcity issues there.  Cummins bought Onan back in the 80's I think it was, and let the Onan engines die... I think to avoid competition with Cummins' own diesels.
