McGraw Edison sold Onan years ago. Cummins owns them now. Those were nice units. But only made about two years.

There`s a K450 on CL near me (sort of...), $50/obo. Seller doesn`t know anything except it turns over. Looks to be in good shape. Are these units 2 or 4 stroke? Parts still available? Are they noisy? I`m thinking might be nice for running a 300W worklight or battery charging. Something like this in 12v only would be real handy...

Hi I am new to the group and have a Tag-Along K1000 that I purchased a couple of years ago. The unit had not been run in several years and had lots of rust in the gas tank. This past weekend I was able to get it to actually run and make power with a little coaxing and feeding the fuel from an external tank. I actually had it running for abt a half hour. I would like to get a copy of any manuals that might be available for the unit so that I can get it running with the factory settings as opposed to my seat of the pants settings.

Thanks in advance,

Fred

I would be very interested in the parts manual. I also have a KJ 1000. My email address is adam_knapp@msn.com

Thanks in advance for your help

I must be the other guy that bought one of these years ago

Mine still runs like a top....I probably use it 4 or 5 times a year....camping, tailgating, etc. Not enough power to use for backup for power outages, except for some lights, but that's what I have the big generator ( 9.5 kw ) for.

I never got the manual with it...got it used from a buddy of mine who used it on a service truck. i think it had about 5 hours use on it - paid 75 bucks - and NO regrets !

Would love to get the manual for it !
