Default Onan 15JC

I looked at this generator today, it's a 15jc 3phase.
Can it be rewired to run 120/220? Or is it strictly 3 phase? It starts and runs great!

Model# 15jc-4r/6622r
Serial# 127c997450
Exciter#06sx193b magniciter?
120/208 3 phase
Gen data 15JC/179

It is 3 phase only.Probably could change it if you have time and money.

I was afraid of that , it's a good runner. I sold the 12k djc head I had from my blown djc. I could pick it up for $300.

The owner texted me this morning, he does not want it and will trade a smaller 2k-3k generator for his camper. I just picked up the AJ 2.5 120-240 volt generator, he looked at it at said this thing is sweet! Should I trade?

Yes!

I will give you what you paid for the AJ in exchange for "just a few" parts from the JC.

1 JC, no JBs. I am about ready to scrap a 5D gen-end off a mag set, I gave the mag unit to another Staker and have no use for the rotor & stator. I do have a "few" other green sets.

The one I have was one of my earlier acquisitions and is mounted on an Onan trailer with full enclosure, and a 50 gal gasoline tank under the set.
https://www.smokstak.com/forum/album.php?albumid=844 This was my first restoration of a JC, I like to think my abilities have come a little way since then.
