Onan rebuild

Recommended Posts

Onan motor needs rebuilt. I want to keep an Onan in my 520-H. I am in the Martinsburg WV area so I don't want to travel to far.

Do you not have the time for this? What exactly is the issue? Knocking? Low compression, something else?

Has a knocking noise in the front of the engine. Seems to be around a valve. Haven't had a chance to check for leak down or cyl pressure. I am short on tools these days and I really don't have a place to do much of that kind of work. It uses quite a bit of oil and I'm pretty sure it needs a look at internally. I'm gonna look at it tonite an see if I can find the problem. I am really looking to find somebody who can rebuilt the engine.

How do I get with the guy in Harrisonburg. I will get with him and go from there. I'm not surprised at the price either from what I can tell. I may look around and see is I can find another engine or a used tractor.

I plan on going to the Big Show next month. Hope to do a little shopping while there.

I'm going to wait till after the Big Show. Give me a chance to see what's put there as I got my 145 going. Been sitting for 3 or 4 years. Knocked off the spider webs and the squirrel nests and it runs great. I am wanting for the show as I have never heard of it. Sounds like its gonna be something.

I have an Onan P220G-I/10956C from a 1990 520H now for sale.  It is running and presently still on it's tractor.  Working hour meter shows 455 +/-. The tractor has other parts that will be used with the rest of my 520H herd.  Location is Churchville, Maryland.

 

Had an inquiry to my Craigs List ad from a man who wanted to use the engine on a Steiner to replace an Onan B48GGA020.  Neither of us know how compatible the two engines are.  Would appreciate comments from anyone who has made such a change.
