RE: elec test help on Onan gen

Does the starter engage the flywheel and start cranking the engine and then mysteriously just disengage before the generator starts? Or does the started just click, you hear the gear fit the flywheel, and then it immediately retracts and shuts down? Can you put a meter on the starter battery terminals and then watch the display while you're cranking the starter over to see if it hits 6 volts? Either that or as MrWizard suggests put a battery on the ground right by the generator and run some jumper cables to the terminals on the generator. "start cranking the engine and then mysteriously just disengage before the generator starts"? describes it best.

RE: elec test help on Onan gen

I'm going to ask a really important question, have you read the manual? There was nothing wrong with my Onan engine, oil level, battery charge, damaged wires... I finally deciphered the little set of flashes on the display. Mine wouldn't start because the generator was not outputting. So you may find the answer in the manual. If it's not there, what have you lost, nothing but a few minutes. Yep have read owners manual and service manual. Service manual not that helpful as I wish. Covers about a dozen things, then for "faults" says to see authorized deal.

elec test help on Onan gen

I know there must be a common since answer to my problem. My gen doesn't want to start. As in "starter engages-disengages" What describes my problem the best. Working my way thru the trouble shooting checklist, (A)battery state of charge, (12.77) (B)try starting gen with vehicle running (didn't work), (C) clean battery cables and battery posts...Here is where I could use some help. Only one end of cable I can get to without pulling the genny. Appears the cable has a wire bracket clamp (better known as a P clamp)that holds the cable, so cable doesn't rub on other stuff I guess. I really don't want to drop the genny just to test a cable, big hassle to get it out and back in. So I'm thinking how to test this... without the pain of pulling the genny. Thinking about running a regular auto jumper cable directly from battery to genny. In other words I'll by pass the cable being used now (that might be bad) and see what happens. My concern is the other electronics I might not see. Is there anything I could screw up doing a test like this? On genny's, the cable goes directly from battery to genny or is there anything in the cable routing such as a fuse or relay or ? (I didn't post genny info because this is a elec test question, really not model specific). Thanks

RE: Anyone ever use one of these

Watch some YouTube on it first. Can be dangerous. But after you do it some and dont take any short cuts, not that bad. Get thick welding cloves. Mine are from harbor freight. Dont refill at crowded places, people here a propane hiss and think worlds going to end.

Thanks for info. Washing tow vehicle this weekend,the stock hitch label says 1000 max tongue weight. Never had a problem (and safe for now) but think I'll get bigger rating hitch. Thanks.

RE: Parts Procurement

Seattle is on your info..... Just my opinion... Call Allied body in South park, see if you can send pic and see what they say. (Years ago I built a camper and they were able to get smaller "corner caps") Heiser on Tukwila or Intl blvd (or what ever they call the street now) across the street from old Boeing headquarters (the old drive in before Boeing took it over) Western trailer repair near airport and Lucille st ? Allied body was more helpful when I was gathering parts, for me anyways. And there is guy in south park (proper) that does crazy custom stuff, and charges crazy also:) Hard to match up sometimes if ordering online, but maybe this will help.
