NOT THE POOR/BAD SERVICE

Expert:  Hank F. replied 1 month ago.

Sir, that is not the carb kit for your unit.

That kit is for some RV generators, and will not fit your portable unit.

The book is not showing a rebuild kit for your unit.

If you let me know which parts you need, I can get you the part numbers.

Customer: replied 30 days ago.
I just ordered it, ,Can I get back with when it arrives on this same note. ..??
Expert:  Hank F. replied 28 days ago.

Sir, you can certainly reply back to this thread.

But as I explained in my reply to you, the carb kit that the other expert gave you a link for is not the correct kit for your carb - it is not even close.

That carb kit is for certain BF, BGA and NH series of RV gensets. It will not fit your portable unit.

Onan does not list an actual rebuild kit for your carb, but individual parts may still be available.

If you let me know which parts you need, I can get you the part numbers.
