Default Another Onan JB

So I was offered another Jb today.

7.5jb 3cr/1408IAD
OTCU40-B/14G
B870876050

The owner says it.
It will not start, it has spark, will turn over well. It has a transfer switch. And a exterior onan housing.

I will grab it next week. $200.

Wow wish I could find a 7.5JB. Never see one in my part of the country. Especially at that price.

As you stated, it has spark. If all else seem normal such as compression, etc, spray a shot of starting fluid down the carburetor. It is kicks, then it is a simple carburetor rebuild. Don't do this in front of the seller because if it kicks over on starting fluid, he may want more $$$. Contrary to popular belief, starting fluid used as I stated will NOT hurt a gasoline motor.

Good luck and post pictures and updates.
