Gary, Did you get it running and hear it for yourself? It will be an easy rebuild, since it didn't throw a rod yet..

Not sure if I would want to take a chance of making a window in the block. Shouldn't be too hard to pull motor and look inside. Good luck.

Do you have a service manual for the 400 ? There isn't one on the site but I bought one thinking it might be helpful with the 318 but it isn't . It takes me forever to scan and thats a big book . If someone has a good/fast way to scan it I'll mail it to them , Al

If it's a really big manual, it may help people downloading later to have it in smaller chunks. I don't know this manual is sectioned, but most are, and 4 midsize downloads will offer less resistance to people with slower Internet speeds later.

Thanks for the efforts.

Hopefully you can find a rod to match, possibly a good used one. I've bought many used Onan rods & always got great service from them.
