Glad you found the issue. Shoulder bolts can be a pain at times.

Message from Mr. Onan

larry
the N 52M manual is INDEED WRONG, saying 3/8- 16 X 1 1/4.
they SHOULD be 3/8-16 X 2 1/2.
the N52M uses the same pan as the B43 and B48 M,
and the 2 1/2 is what is called for on them
also that is what is in my N52M engine.

I HOPE you do not have 5/8 bolts installed.
thank you. boomer

Thanks!
They are 3/8, X 3" Need a 5/8 socket to fit them. I may have mixed the bolts up, but I don't think so. This would explain why the orginal bolts were bent. I'll stop at the hardware store and pick up some replacements.

Thanks!

Larry, if you are truly using a 5/8" socket to fit the heads, some one has probably upsized the bolts to 7/16". 9/16" is the standard head for a 3/8" bolt and a 5/8" is the standard size head for a 7/16" bolt. Charles

9/16 socket, I was replying from work and couldn't read the socket from there :) . Picked up the correct bolts on the way home.

No permatex this time. The gasket was still in good shape and cleaned up fine. I cleaned up all the old sealant, wiped and blew / vacuumed it down and used the correct bolts this time, torqued to 32.5 fp. Filled (a little over full) with oil and placed back on the blue shop towels. Should know something in 24 hours.

Nice congrats

Save the "congrats" for 24 hours from now. I think the leak is whipped, the bolts seemed to snug the pan up good, but I am going to wait to see for sure, Hopefully will have her back together this weekend.

I ordered this (Helix Racing Products 401-1302 HEAT SHIELD 18" X 18") and started painting the muffler. I plan to touch up the paint on the tins and air filter housing during re-assembly. After removeing it 3 times and the muffler work there are some scratches in the paint that need addressed.

Kenny is gonna love this. 2-1/2 inch bolts with new lock washers installed, the jury is still out if this fixed the leak. I made the mistake of placing the paper towels on a oil soaked dolly. Testing again, this time with cardboard under the towels.

Thanks Willie but no, the towels on the floor was from tonight. They looked ok, but I think soaked some oil from the dolly. I want to be sure the leak is fixed before I put this back together. I placed clean card board and new shop towels down for one more test. In the mean time I have cleaned the tins and will give them another coat of paint tomorrow.
