If you ever get copies, sign me up for a set. I have had no luck contacting him.

I just sent an e-mail to his old address at cox.net, I do not expect a reply but you never know. I have sent PMs & e-mails through Smoke Stack with no results.

"I keep thinking of stuff. I do not need liquid feed, it does not get that cold in Texas. I just need LP gas vapor so is the 11" regulator ok? "


From the above post, sounds like he may have been in Tx. Another post mentioned he was 62 in 2005. In another he mentioned picking up a unit in The Fort Worth area.

A lot of those tracking sites will give name and age, that might help narrow it down. Did anyone reach out to Harry to see if he signed up with any more localizing information?

The funny thing is he could still be posting. He could have signed up under another name. It could be he just doesnt want to have to deal with all the requests. I would like to have a copy also.

There is another avenue to persue. Another member who I spoke to through PM and offered to make copies for him but is very hard to get hold of. Argent88 used to own Diesel Electric. Name David Midelbrook. He says he has all the cds. He also has many parts.

well jim if your out there and reading this I'll be glad to deal with all the request I'm sure several others will help
If it's time to copy all of them I'll be glad to pay shipping both ways or pay for someone close to you to copy them

on the other option Argent88 I'll try to email him or do you want to try ?

It's a real stretch , I'm not sure if it was COX, but I think up in Maine COX sold out to another co. Maybe they did this across USA?? Might be worth a shot to try same email address with new company's internet suffex.

Cox became Suscom.com here in Maine a couple years ago.
Might give that a try
They are susquehanna communications, one of the largest cable / internet providers in the country.

George: I do appreciate you and all the other guru's that have large amounts of Onan knowledge & experience and share it willingly.

I don't believe the OP's intent was to sell the info. He was trying to get the info to post it & make it available to all as he did the parts catalog CD's online..
We all understand how hard it is to find info on our green machines and everyone here is trying to keep them running forever, along with sharing any information we find to help each other.
This forum is unique in the way it operates as nobody is charging for our knowledge and experience in many different fields.

This thread is a bit old but I'll post anyway.........I'm in Houston, TX and I visit pretty much anywhere in the eastern two thirds of the state fairly often. I was in Cleburne (just south of Ft. Worth) a few days ago. Today, I'm driving over to Austin for a few days visit. If I can benefit the group in any way, just say the word. My wife is a super guru on anything related to computers or high tech devices so there is nothing I can't handle.
