Well, not the Tec engine with bad ignition module at least.  I bet points cleaning and new plugs might make difference on an Onan??

That's a good buy there.The top grill pieces are selling for ridicules money if not cracked or broken.What dash is on that one?Plastic or aluminum?  I see the Metal gas tank so it's a fairly early one.

 

Clean the points if still no spark stick another Condenser in her.

Its a plastic dash. Good thing is there isnt a crack on anything. Thanks for advice,it could turn out to be a lot of checking

You done good for that money one couldn't pass that up, as posted check the points condenser and the ignition switch if still nothing then it could be the coil they do go bad on the Oman's, if that's the case there are a number of coil replacements that have been done using a GM dual coil.

I'd say you got the deal of the year - a real steal. I wish I had gone to that yard sale first.

All good advice on points, condenser and coil. If you do get to testing the coil you can use the procedure below that I found a while back.

Good luck with it.

JiminRI

Coil Test

While the engine is cold, remove all wires from the coil. Set your meter to ohms and test across the primary winding (the small posts). It should read 3.87 - 4.83 ohms. Now test across the secondary winding (the spark plug wire posts). It should read 12,660 - 15,400 ohms. If they fall much out of this range, the coil is bad.

If you get it running and it seems to fail when hot, retest the coil as above and see how the readings compare.

As stated, that unbroken grill is going for 150-300 by itself.
