You know aren't human beings strange? Our bachelor son who will most likely inherit this place does not seem too interested in learning or listening to what I am trying to tell him about operating my JB once I am gone. However, he marvels at loading it up and watching the ammeters.

I on several occasions try to give him bits of what I think are helpful information but he does not seem very interested. Just told him today that I am thinking about putting together a check list to make it easier for him to operate and more importantly maintain this nice standby power plant.

On second thought, he can read the Onan Owners Manual, 967-320? not sure what I am going to end up doing in this regard. Oh well, I guess I never paid much attention to my Dad's advice.

Thanks!

Pretty clean in there but, see maybe a little pee damage.


I sure would like some of those meters you have there!

It is a bit different than the inside of a RJC I have.

Yea.... I found a few acorns in there. I put a copper chore boy pan scrubber in the wiring hole for now
Planning on cleaning it then mounting it to some racking so the critters can't get to it. I'm still torn on what to do with the controls. Everything appears to work, but there are so many relays that I have no idea which does what.

Oh my word... Looks like someone was playing in it. Is that a single phase set? Mine is 3 phase, but I lucked out that it was a 12 wire head. No B150 option though.

No ID tag on it but, per block serial number, 3 phase, 12 wire B150 option. The rotor and stator part numbers match the numbers on the build sheet so it is really extended stack.
