Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am going to assist you with this.

I know this is not what you are wanting to hear, but that spring has been obsolete for years.

I can assure you your generator is much more than 8 years old - the spring has been obsolete that long.

Although you will not find that spring through Onan, all hope is not lost.

If you have the old spring, or at least what's left of it, you can take it to a small engine shop and have a close enough match found. It is just a governor spring, and specs aren't as critical as in some other places.

If you don't have any of the old spring, you shouldn't have any problem taking the whole unit in and finding a close enough replacement to make it work. The carb and governor will need to be properly readjusted after installation.
