    I've heard that Cummins released the prats rights for aftermarket companys to make them. Is this true and if so then Onans will be around longer.

    My setpdad has a johndeere 318. This past spring he had me go over it and was complaning of lack of power. the engine started but took forever to do it. did a compression check had 80psi on one cyclinder and 70 on the other (wet test) checked the hours on the meter just shy of 2200hrs. (was told that hr meter hasn't worked for some time). He has owned this tractor since 99 had 1025hrs on it when he bought it. He rearly changed oil and never tuned it up. I torn it down to to see if it was worth rebuilding. The cyclinders was shot the crank was out of spec, the valves were so bad the seats were beat out. Found a company that offered remans. $2500. He went ahead and put the reman on it. Like my stepdad said he isn't going to find a tractor with all the attachments that he has for the johndeere for that kinda money. I have heard many of bad things about Ohan engines but I think this one proves that they can run even with bad maitance. on a side note when I checked into rebuilding this one many parts were not availible, the crank was one and oversized piston was another.

    It's the smell of money to me.I see many transmissions welded together! Some I can't even get the clutchs out of drums and have to get a new drum also. I agree with just about everything you ae say but the simple fact is no one wants to pay in that feild anymore. In 1997 I was working as a Mechanic and got a job in a fab shop making double what I was as the mechanic. In 2010 they closed that plant and moved to mexico. I could find a job as a welder making half what I did. Now I work as a mechenic starting out making a dollar more than what I was making in the fab shop.Its a strange circle!

    Always a posility! Did Auotboby for a while wasn't my cup of tea. But I did have small buisness corse while in school. But heres the neat part. I am a AAMCO certified Transmission REbuilder. Now there is a buisness to go into. Cars will always have a trans, even Hybrids.
  10. He claims to have a new one so I may let the pictured one go if he finds the other one...I kinda got in contact with him at a bad time so he was unable to show me the rest of the stuff but when he is ready I will be getting a call. I got another lead tonight from another former wheel horse dealer that I am going to check out too bad all of these are coming up now when it is so close to Christmas . It always seams the great deals come around christmas time! Not that i have any money anyother time
