So George,

Now that you have your 448 (welcome to the world of Ingersoll/Case owners by the way) what is the condition of the engine? I would make one recommendation regarding the powerplant. The Onans are good engines but can be expensive to repair / maintain and complicated to work on. If upon inspection you discover that the engine needs major work such as new plugs, a new air cleaner, or a change of oil and filter keep things simple for yourself and instead just RE-POWER WITH A DIESEL ENGINE! :thumbs:

I also agree with diesel, Your motor is junk if the muffler belt is slipping, no hope for it.:deadhorse:

It's scary the things that can go wrong with a gasoline fueled engine. Fuel filters and muffler belts are prohibitively expensive - go diesel george!:bigrofl:

Dang George, you already have a working knowledge of diesel engines! It'll be a breeze for you to do the diesel swap! :D

I did. Bought the very best brand money could buy on the advice of the parts salesman. Darn'd if I could tell a difference!

So we're all in agreement then - George does diesel? Shall we impose parameters on his project or give him free rein to create the 448 Ingy / diesel of his own design?

You're right! George, we need a detailed PORC (plan of diesel conversion - pronounced PORK - sorry oldcowhand) from you at your earliest convenience. The PORC should include an overview of the conversion, detailed engine specs, a bill of material, estimated times and costs, and of course - on-going pictures. Please also include a resume detailing your previous training and experience that qualify you to perform the conversion. No hurry here, if you post it by the beginning of the week that will work just fine. We will review your PORC and either approve it or return it to you with suggestions and/or further requirements. With any luck we can get your PORC approved by the end of next week so you can get this project in gear. It has been languishing long enough! :poke:

Would that be "plan on re-power conversion"? I don't follow the "R".:D
Not to worry, as I love ham, bacon, just about the whole pig!
I wasn't so much worried about his plan, I'm more concerned he'll put the wrong heat range spark plugs in the thing & cause the freeze plugs to blow! He'll possibly get the carb settings all screwed up too without us monitoring his actions. And George, remember to use a ballast resistor on the coil!:smile1:

Wow! You guys are brutal! Hilarious, but brutal ROFL! I hope that he inspects the muffler bearings and the smoke shifter too before he determines the condition of the power plant! I think I could probably lend him a bucket of steam if he needed one too LOL!
