Default Onan Service Manual - 2.5LK?

In the spirit of manual searching...

I just came across a sweet little 2.5lk-10545j onan that has not run in years.
I would like to restore it to running condition...but have not been able to find a service/owners manual.

Does anyone have something like this he/she would be willing to share?

Thanks!

Thanks for the reply, Billy.

I would like to find into about:

engne service intervals,
type and capacity of crankcase oil,
how to service the oil bath aircleaner (it has a rectangular box on the side of the engine),
point gap and how to adjust (where are timing marks, etc),
generator end service intervals (normal maintenance),
carb adjusting,
if I can find out -> how to convert the genend to floating neutral

These are the sorts of things I am interested in.

I appreciate your help.

M14GUY, dont you have a cck. Basicly the LK is a cck, with one cylender cut off. The oil bath breather, you just change the oil when it gets dirty, maybe 1 day, maybe 10 years depending on operating environment. Mine kept leaking oil on my cck, is i replaced it with paper filter. On my LK it has a oil bath but not the same as yours. Points and adjustments are same as on your cck, i did away with points on mine, and went with electronic ignition during rebuild. As for oil typed, just regular small engine oil, down here we use sae 30. Think mine hold 2 or 2.5 quarts. If you look at my past posts, you can see the picture of mine. Mine had water in it for years so i have a .020 bigger piston, and high compresson head for running natural gas as mine is factory trifuel.

My e-mail is pupista@gmail.com.

Thank you.
