Default Onan 45EF

I recently purchased a Onan 45EF without any manuals. It needs a small amount of work to get it running. I have a couple of questions. I want to trailer mount it. Does anyone know how much it weights? Does anyone have a manual either owner's or service that would have a schematic of the wiring?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Jim

Full model number (including all spec numbers and letters) and serial number would be necessary to get the right information

Need your model and serial number. That unit should have the 292 Ford V8 on it. I would guess around 2000 pounds.

While were guessing I will guess 1,850, what do we win if we get it right?

Here is the rest of the info.

Onan 45EF
Spec#: 4R8/2719D
Serial Number starts with 82C.
The rest of the serial number is hard to read.
What would be the year it was built?

Thanks for your answers. I appreciate the info.

Jim

That would be August 1962. Do you want a six pack or a case.
