I am looking for a starter for an Onan diesel 4cyl. 18h.p.@1800 rpm engine. It is air cooled and was made for use as a generator engine. I also need a stub shaft assembly that bolts to the flywheel to be able to attach the engine to a generator. The model# XXXXX XXXXX Can you help with locating the starter and perhaps a stubshaft plate? Thank you.Travis Arnett
Hi I'm WayneI will help you with this Good Morning here is a place for your starter , free shipping http://compare.ebay.com/like/360206307643?var=lv<yp=AllFixedPriceItemTypes&var=sbar&_lwgsi=y&cbt=y
You may have answered half the question, I am not sure as one supplier may have both components. One is the starter, which you may have a source for, but what about the stubshaft? I also need to know the way it is connected, may it be by shaft, sprocket, fluid coupling, pulley or however it is made. But I also need that part also. I purchaced the engine from a gov. auction, so I didn't get any parts or info. on how it was used.
Hi I did not have much luck with that part of the question, But on Thermo_king Reefer units and some gen sets I worked on , they were spline or coupler that bolted on the generator, and fly wheel of engine had 6 studs(pins)
This particular genset has 10 or more studs (I didn't count or measure these) that bolt the engine housing to the gen. The engine flywheel has 2 holes tapped appr. 1" apart every 90 degrees, forming a cross pattern. I thought this would be a hard to find item, other then the gen. that it bolt to. Could you tell me the replacement oil filter instead, as mine is painted olive drab. I'd prefer a fram no. but any brand would be better than none. Thanks.
worked on lift trucks, and IR air compressors
Thanks for the help.
You are more then welcome, if I come up with the adapter to gen to Eng, I will send that to you Wayne
