My luck is starting to pick up--Guy down the road whos mower I keep running just stopped by and gave me an 8hp briggs powered onan generator that his friend was going to toss cus he could not start it.

I checked the oil and spark all a-ok,sprayed some starting fluid in it and run a few moments on that.so time to flush the carb and glass bowl and she should be good to go.hoping the gen unit is good.

 

Question for ya.     shrould says --model190432-----type--1798-01---code79060610

 

am I correct that it would be made 1979    june    6        and it would be a bearing type engine

 

                                                                                                 Thanks much

Yep, ball bearing, good old model 19, coils always going bad on them, just because it starts and idles does not mean it's good. red/orange spark means bad.

 

 Wards manual, Onan you have to pay $$$ for it :

Got her running today and the gen puts out 114 volts with a bunch of stuff pluged in,auto idle don't work--solonoid rusted tight and its going to stay that way.I don't want to put a dime into it.

My tack says its running at 3100 rpm is that the correct speed?

My plan is to spray the crud off the engine and take it to race track next weekend and sell it cuz I bought a new one two months ago and its nice and quiet and easy on gas,them briggs just make to much noise for me and seem to suck a lot of gas.

Just hope the person that buys it doesn't pit next to us.

Thanks dodge trucker--I turned it up to 3500 on my tack and it was putting out 121 volts pulling about 23 amps of stuff i pluged in it.My old tack could be a tick off.Hope I can sell it next weekend.

Ya I love free and cheap.
