Does anyone have any pictures of the hood hinge on the 1655/1855? The PO replaced the original Onan with a Onan Performer 24, to access the engine compartment you have to lift the hood off (due to the FEL). Would an original hinge work with this motor?

Thanks for any help

Matt

I don't have any pictures right now but there isn't a real hinge on them. It is two tabs that fit in to slots on the front of the frame that allow the hood to tilt and be removed fairly easily.

Depending on the front end loader, you should be able to tilt the hood enough to access the engine to some extent. I can get pics of mine with the Johnson loader when the weather clears up.

Thanks George, It gets to be a real pain lifting the hood on and off to check the oil. The loader that's on it shows Sears And Roebuck. It looks an awful like a Johnson Loader.

All the Sears I ever seen with a factory installed loader were "Kwik Way" loaders, but doesn't mean they all were. Yep, the hoods on the 1650 thru 1855 are a pain with loaders mounted. With my bucket as low as it can go, I can barely get my hood on & off, and that's with my tabs cut off 1/2 way too.

Not that I can see. It looks like some one bolted a piece of angle iron on the front of the frame with two bolts. I wonder if it's covering the slots you advised of.

Daniel, I'll snap a couple of picks it, it very well could be a Kwik Way. I have to fab something up. I remember reading something you posted about the Onan 24 being to wide.

If you have the hood off, you should be able to see the slots front the inside of the frame also. We are getting hammered with the weather now or I would go out and get some pics right now of it. I don't know what tomorrow will bring weather wise but if I have enough room out in the garage to get the hood off of mine I will and get some pics.

I forgot you have an Onan 24. I am sure it is a good sized engined. Mine has a 20hp in it but I don't think it is much bigger then the 16 or 18.

George when you get time, I know the eastern seaboard getting pounded. I'll take a trip out to the garage for a quick peek.

George , I see the two slots your referring to. Not a great pics, but it looks like the tabs are missing off the hood.

Thye pic appears to show the loader has self leveling arms, that keep the bucket level going up or down. That would indicate it is a Kwik Way loader. I assume the angle iron bolted to the front is for the grill to rest on? Even if you could shorten tabs for the grill, likely it wouldn't tilt far enough to access the engine for the hood hitting the loader cross brace. You could do as I did, and cut out the flare from the side of the hood. That allows me easier access to my oil dipstick. I'll try to remember to take a pic or 2 for you & post tomorrow.

Thanks guys for your help. I do think that was the idea for the angle iron, doesn't work to well though! I'm sure with your guys help I'll come up with something.
