Picked up a Lincoln Weldanpower 250 G9 PRO for $80 today. The guy said he was grinding w/ it and the onan all of a sudden started pukin' lots of oil smoke. It's gonna have to wait 'til later in the winter as I have other projects ahead of it. When I find out what the damage is I'll be pickin' brains to see about parts availability. I'd like to find out if Lincoln had another make of engine on this welder. Unless this is an easy fix I'd rather go to a different brand engine if possible. Are Onan parts as hard to get as I've heard?
PS: I may get lucky on this. I just went out and pulled the dipstick and it's more gas than oil. I'll just hope there's no cyl or brg damage. Someone mounted the gas tank so it was gravity feed. I'll remount the gas tank and get a new fuel pump for it. The old one is still there w/ the fuel fittings broke off,LOL!!
