Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.

It looks as though this part has been discontinued by Onan. I have searched across the internet on numerous websites and everything that I am finding says that it has been discontinued. I did find a couple of websites that state that it is on national backorder and has been since June 2015 but my guess is that they just haven't updated their information. The best recommendation that I could make at this time is to check with a parts distributor in your area. If you can provide your zip code I can help you with locating some of your nearest distributors and you can continue from there.

In most places that I did check the part number actually changed to a(###) ###-####01 if that helps any at all. It shouldn't make a difference since when you give anyone the original part they should have the superseded part number in their system or parts listings.
