My 520-H

S416-8

So joined when I picked up the 416 so figured it’s time to start a new chat for the 520. 
 

done so far:

new fluids and filters

added a plow 

cleaned all connections

new Set of rear Carlisle Ag sneakers with tubes, not loaded yet but will be.

picked up a full used dash with working gauges so time to figure out how to change the two that are in the tractor and the creeping throttle controls ..  

 

looking for

snowblower - may have it found

my replace front tires with Ag sneakers as well

 

fab work

picked up an old plow and frame at an auction for $5 and just may try to create a rear grader blade 

 

will add pics later

@S416-8https://www.amazon.com/Super-Lube-51004-Synthetic-Viscosity/dp/B000UKUHXK/ref=sr_1_3? . use this on all my cables , insures smooth movement , your creeping throttle controls , had a similar issue , detail lubricate , using super lube , all related lever ends and linkage points , drive out the rust, also added 2 small light extension springs , on my choke/ throttle close down points , that assists the closing of the cable, stopped creeping , and made response / reaction to cable control very smooth / easy . small light , EXTENSION  springs for just a light cable assist  , get some perforated steel to add a pull point , this works , pete

You need to add some drag at the throttle lever pivot point, you can do that on some by putting a tiny bolt thru it and adding a locknut to squeeze the pivot.  Pete's idea of adding a spring to counter the governor spring has merit, I have never tried that on an Onan.

I just read that as well. 
cool thing is for 100 I got everything for a dash. Gauges, controls, ignition switch and chock and throttle cables. So have parts to get it all going

@lynnmor , you know never thought about the different set up on an onan , but i'm sure its a related , cable to linkage , drag /  response.when I  started to look at my constant issue , just went after every movement detail , did not even think about it , but I WAS PULLING THE CABE BACK FOR A RESET , thats what made me think of a small spring doing the pull back , nothing heavy , but it totally smoothed out its function. regularly look an improvement to an issue , as with anything I  suggest , its been in regular use for years , many hours , so I know it works . staying on the run from the w/h police with many different improvements , dick tracy, pete

more updates are that the gauges are in, throttle cable done and not I don't like the bushing at the base of the of the 2 hydraulic levers so putting it back together is on hold.... can't move ahead with those like that..
