The Onan engine in the QT16 I got was shot. Water got inside and sat there for a long while. Started looking on CL for a replacement engine, Briggs or Onan. Found a Suburban with an Onan BF-MS about 1 -1/2 hours from home. Said it run. Was asking $400. Talked back and forth a bit, then he said I could have the whole thing for $200 and they would start it and run it before I paid for it. Took off this morning about 7, drove in a downpour for about 45 min. It was just sprinkling when I got to his location. The boy came to the door with the booster pack in hand. Hooked it up, hit the key and it fired right up. Ran good idle and fast. I tilted my trailer and he drove it on, flat rear tire and all. I handed him 2 bills , strapped it down, covered the air intake and home ward bound.
The motor is ready to come out, attach the motor mounts and set it in the QT. Drive shaft is in the welding shop for new U-joints. With some more good luck the QT 16 will be back running again.
