Onan generator-Free

Post by Footeloose »

Hi folks, I have removed my 1972 Onan genset because of some rotted stringer repair i have going on. The gen is complete as far as I know, turns freely by hand, & has clean oil in it. For the boating we do, we dont need 6500 watts of power, so if anyone is interested in the unit, please write me back here on the forum, & maybe we can set up a phone conversation. thanks, Dave

What country are you in?
I needed a less expensive hobby, so I bought a boat!

Free is a great price, but that's a drive. I will see I can contact a friend up that way.

Good morning, sure, give it a try. Includes the Aqua Muff muffler, forgot that. Wonder what it would cost to have shipped, most likely by truck. It's so complete, just hate to scrap it. I guess you are somewhere near Norfolk, or Hampton? incidentally, are you the guy I chatted with about having been in a neighboring marina to yours in Hampton? I was on my way south on my boat

That was me. I don't think getting the gen is doable. Besides the last thing I need is another project on something I don't need. Surprised no one else has jumped on it.

Hi there, oh, I dont blame you. Thats exactly why im not pursuing it. Its's one thing to get the engine running, but then does it actually make power. I know there's quite a bit to that control, & all that. Have a good one.

Hi Steve,
Are you still trying to give your gen-set away? If it can stay with you until early August I would drive up from Michigan to get it. I’d like to take my wife to Niagara Falls anyway. I would come sooner but the marina is bugging me to launch my boat (F32) and I have some work to do there. Bob 586-229-9606. You can give me a call most any time. I am still working from home.

Hi Bob, I spoke to my marina owner yesterday, & it's no problem storing it inside the shop until you get here. Keep me in the loop as to your plans. It was great chatting with you. Hope you continue to rehab successfully. Dave
