Moving to another topic for now. The heat shield material came in. It is 18" X 18", adhesive backed, and seems a good thickness. I plan on lining the inside of the hood above the muffler with this.

Onan engine for sale... Cheap.
Friggin thing won't stop leaking
Local pickup only, it's laying on its side in front of my garage
That's where it landed when I got peeved, lost my cool and threw it.
As is, where is.

Mr. Onan is sending me another gasket next week with some install tips. I am helping the Neighbor with his 2005 Murray for now.

The pan gasket is in transit, but the discussion over there revolved around where the 3" bolts came from. The manual miss stated the correct pan bolt size and it was determined these are 2-1/2 in length. The manual indicated 3" bolts for the intake manifold. I pulled one and it is 2-1/2 so I may have accidently swapped these on re-assembly. The plan now is to get the new gasket and check for 24 hours to see if the leak is fixed. Replace the manifold bolts (one at a time) with 3" bolts. If the leak is fixed, Drain the oil, put on a new $18.00 oil filter and hopefully call this good.
