I can do that tonight, the 19.9 should be the same thing.
The closest thing I have up at the farm is an 18/6.

Don't know about your engine, but on my GT18 Onan Roper it's a 3/32" cable 16" long with swaged loops on each end. It bolts to the center upper bolt on the nose, and a screw beside the spark plug that goes thru the shroud into the head. Sorry, no pictures it's raining like rip here and the battery on my phone's dead. :ah_shoot:

p.s. the bolt in the head is just on the left (drivers) side of the plug.

Thanks John, I didn't think to look on the engine, guess what I found. :thumbs: . Finished testing the wiring, hooked my little (4 Amp) power supply to the battery terminals and proceeded to make sure I got voltage to the Coil wire, Solenoid, and regulator wire, with the key switch in the various positions, All is good. I also was curious as to the light current draw with the tail LED in circuit. WOW a whopping 3/10 Amp!. That got me curious as to the original lights current draw. Well I couldn't get a total as it maxed my little power supply at almost 5 amps. I did not leave this on for more than 5 seconds, long enough to take a picture. I am working on an area in the shop to move the engine to, easier said than done.

I don't have many pictures of myself in the restore threads, My Daughter came out and snapped this picture of me installing the power supply. Old Girl has been a Great stress reliever, and does really cool in the shop with the shop lights off.

Glad you found the cable. Just got home a little bit ago and checked in before going out to take a pic.

Thanks MH81, Glad you checked in before going out. I seem to make the most progress on the weekends, even though this weekend was an hour shorter. I wish they would move DST to Friday afternoon instead of Sunday morning.

What do you do when you drop your best "cheap" multi meter and crack the display? Go get another. Now I have spare parts, minus a display.

All this talk of LED's influenced a purchase.

I will be soon having a thread on a light controller my kid designed and built for my little runabout 4x6 trailer... During testing with the trailer, it became obvious that the 6 year old elcheapo brand lights needed to go.

 

Found these for $40 for the set. http://www.maxworks..../html/?124.html

Seemed to be a decent deal and it's all LED's so I shouldnt have to change them again if I take my time and wire it correctly to protect against water.

Just don't drop your multi meter when putting them on MH81. :D Now for the moment everyone has been waiting for...... the engine! I decided to place it on the folding table on a furniture mover to allow me to spin it around to access all sides. The table is bowed some what but holding. It should spring back as I lighten the engine. My helper assisted in removing the bottom two shroud bolts. Found some interesting nicks on two of the fan blades. I need to find a container to drain the oil, and have hit the flywheel bolt with PB in hope to remove it tomorrow. The starter on this thing is like twice the size of the brigs 18's

Is there a date on that filter? Does it say 1982?
Just kidding, but it sure did collect the mung.

Are you planning on re bushing the starter or anything? Mine will need that in a couple years I think.

There are several starter / alternator shop's in town. A quick search turned this up...

 

"About: Joe's Starter and Generator Shop is the leading alternator, starter, and DC motor rebuild shop in waco and its surrounding areas. We offer new and rebuild units for every application. If you can not make it to us we make service calls. Please call today and see how we might serve you."

 

I guess I'll talk with Joe to see what he can do.

That starter looks real similar to the ones I have messed with on my Onan's. Post all the engine #'s off the shroud. They are heavy!

At least you got all the fins on your flywheel....... I will just leave it at that   :wallbanging:  :(

 

 

If you decide to rebuild the starter do it now, motor will have to come back out if it goes bad in the future.
