If I had an Onan, I would not repower, best sounding engine ever put in a garden tractor and the torque in the normal use range let's you keep the revs and noise low and still do a ton of work.

Just because a company quits, gets bought out, moves to a foreign country, and no longer supports it's former product is no reason to abandon. Stay tough, Tim. Chin up. Watch a YouTube video or two with Onans, it'll cheer ya right up.

OHV is certainly more modern, but is in it's self antique technology, OHC is much more "techy", but a truly modern engine would have variable valve timing or no valves at all. So when someone tells you buy a modern engine, ask them where you can get one. :thumbs:
