Default Onan MDJE Rebuild Completed - Thanks!

To all those who provided the support/advice/help I needed during the rebuild of this 1976 MDJE, a big, big thankyou.

If you're interested in the result, together with a potted pictorial history, I've put a video together. Apologies in advance for the amateur camera work, particularly where I was trying to show the delivery pump being governed when loads were applied/removed.

The next challenge is to dismantle it into small enough sections so that it can be returned to the boat, then fabricate a new exhaust system and she should be good for another 40 years!!

WOW an awesome job, and you are right good for another forty years. Yours looks a lot like my MDJB (1966 magnaciter) that sits io the side of my home ready for the next power failure..
