What do you guys think the fair value of a 316 with the Onan engine is. Tractor/engine has just over 1100 hours on the meter, paint finish is fair, has the 46" mower deck. Engine seems to run ok on my temp tank as I need to replace the fuel pump. Tractor belongs to my co worker's family and they want to sell it. I am considering buying it as I like Onan powered tractors and I want a tractor that can have a 3 point on it. Thanks in advance. Mike

I did some tests today on the engine, 140psi and 135psi on the two cylinders. P218 Onan. I am thinking it might be a replacement engine with those numbers as the hour meter shows 1125, which is where the engine is usualy getting long in the tooth. Runs excellent once I fixed the missing suction tube in the fuel tank. She has a few other minor issues to deal with but nothing I cannot handle at work. Thats about the figures I was thinking. This one should buff out nice, and localy they seem to fetch 1000-1500 at dealers, espicialy with a healthy engine. Mike

Those compression numbers are definitely in the awesome range. I don't think there's any way an engine with over 1,100hrs would have those readings.
