Onan P220 Carb Main Jet

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

I’m cleaning the Onan P220 carb on my 520H. It’s a Nikki 146-0479 carb. I was wondering if the main jet needs An o ring and if so which type and size? There was no o ring when I took it apart. 

Thanks!

there is no o-ring to seal the main jet. ( # 134 on most )

early nikki's used an aluminum washer seal.

 

when you think about it, they have a machined brass surface against a machined aluminum surface,

so no seal is needed.

 

thank you. boomer ( the used onan engine parts guy, also NOS and new )

Great point Boomer! I did reinstall it without the o-ring earlier. I’m reinstalling the carb tomorrow and running it. Cross your fingers👍

      Hi,
       
      I was reading another thread where someone stated that P220 was underrated and actually produced 28 HP on the dyno.  Is the same true of the P216?  Also, I may be trading this engine for a rebuilt K341. Which one do you guys prefer?  Thanks.

      My 520H blow out a valve seat.  Any suggestions on a new motor or should I have the seat repaired?

      Hello, I have a D 200. It has been running great, I was having a hard time starting it and I replace the filter and fuel pump. Adjusted the carb, and now under heavy load she will bog down and stall. If you are just driving seams fine, but if you tow a trailer with the mower, I boggs and stalls? Carb Issue or Fuel Pump?
       
      Thoughts?
       Thank you

      From when I owned 520-H tractors, this is an Onan remote filter adapter 122-0369 and remote filter base 122-0476. One of the problems with the 520-H is the oil filter and base blocking the airflow across the rear cylinder. This will help by moving the oil filter out of the airflow. You could also adapt a small inline oil cooler at the same time. The old gasket is still in place but I would suggest a new one. There is a port for the low oil pressure sensor on the adapter.  I suggest cleaning the relief valve. New hoses of the correct length would be required depending on where you mount the oil filter adapter. Also a plate would need to be fabricated to close off the oil filter hole in the shroud. These have been discontinued for years and are no longer available from Linamar/Onan.  Used and sold as is.
