Yea, many times on the fuel pumps, they can be taken apart, cleaned, then soak the rubber diaphragms in oil for a bit. It causes rubber to swell and rejuvenates it.  

Glad you are headed back down the road.

On both of these Onan's, they have the vacuum port off the back. Both had the tiny hole blocked with dirt. I'm hoping the one on the P220 works good. I'll find out today.

I got that yesterday morning. I beat that base plate into submission, welded it up, then ground the welds down.

I finally got it running, guys. But I am unsure about the hdyro. Neutral is not where it is supposed to be! Wonder if someone got in there and swapped some things around.. Neutral is up into the forward travel area. I adjusted all I know about & can't get it back where it belongs. Gotta be something in this mess! May have to take both fender pans off and compare.

I am low on hydro knowledge! I can adjust it to where it moves good, but neutral is still way out!

It could have lost the key on the shaft going into the hydro. Its a tapered stub so you could tighten it down to work. Check this out first and see , especially if the nut is loose . You can't mess things up inside the unit with out really really trying .
It could have something bent or a shaft twisted because the parking brake was set and they forced the lever to move???

Thanks, Keith. I'll look into all that.

 

Here's where I stand with it this morning. Got to get the neutral where it belongs. The new axle seal I put in a while back is leaking profusely. And I have to get exhaust figured out. There is no room for the muffler that was on it without modifications. And the exhaust hasn't been removed from the engine, mounting bolts to ports are rusted badly. I won't try to loosen them until I warm the engine up.

But it runs and moves. That's a start.

Well, the neutral issue was none of the above. There is a concentric bolt the linkage pivots on that was out  of adjustment. Look for the red dot in the pic.

Got the exhaust under control, used the original muffler. I cut the outlet off the bottom, capped that. Then I drilled a new hole in the side where I wanted and applied a little weld.

It is still very quiet.

Good job there Kenny. Looks like you will have that thing ready for winter snow removal.
