Or you could send it to Texas. I have a hole in my shop to fill. I have a 6.5NH contractor model. Needs exhaust pipe but very hard to find.

Yep.. house is about packed up and sold.. trucks are being shipped the 22nd.. and I'll be there the 30th..

Have 2 16 foot pods the first one has all the house and most of the garage stuff shoved in it.. other will have the rest of my tools engines and onans not going in the back of the trucks


Had my eye on this one since last year.. figured it was now or never.. It will look pretty next to my 5.0 contractors series cck..

It may be time for a servise.. last log was from 2009..

Local Craigslist? Looks familiar, like I may have seen it while perusing...

I'm leaving for Clearwater Fl. Saturday morning. I hope the traveling is good for all of us. I have not yet checked with Florida to see how the gas station situations are since Irma, I was going to call Wednesday.

I will be taking I-70 out to Illinois then down south from there.

Safe trip for us ALL!

It was.. but the add expired some time ago.. I had his number from texting him a low ball offer lol.. he never responded.. so I called him this morning and after packing stuff in the moving container till about 530, than delivering a bed to a friend in a apartment on the 2nd floor, drove a hour each way and low balled him... but in all fairness it had a hard time picking up a 10 amp load from a angle grinder and dropped to 97 volts and stabled out at 107v.

My kitten is not having this late night typing while I should be playing with her.. keeps pawing the keyboard

She was only running on one cylinder had a dead spark plug.. took out the champion rh12 and put in a h10 and fiddled with the main jet adjustment a bit but still likes the choke on just a smudge..

When I get to flordia and have all my onan stuff unpacked and etc will do a full service and clean the carb and replace the intake gaskets as one of them seeps a bit..

Glad I bought it.. I noticed it has the original rubber fuel line from the tank to fuel pump so might have some old fuel line in the carb.. Will be replaced..

Put a 3500 watt load on it and she purred away.. ran it for about 5 min under load and 5 with no.load while the fan was pointed at it front of the engine.

111-110 volts with two 1500 watt heaters and a 500 watt work light on it. Not bad.. did not check hertz as all my gauges are packed up

Getting my onans ready to go in the back if the 94 dodge duelly diesel to be shipped to Miami and I'll pick it up and the shipping company's lot a block from the airport..

I'll be separated from some of my favorite onans for 10 days! Kind of getting anxiety about it.. like sending my kids off on there first trip alone..

Draining all the fuel out of them now..

Pictures of the line up.. and my 2500 watt kohler.. onan 3.0 dsl, 5.0 cck and the 4.0 cck I got last night

Since you are moving to Miami, you will probably have a lot more opportunities to need them than you do in SOCAL. Also, you can probably get a better price for them when and if you decide to sell them. I hear there is a high demand for generators in FL now.

I was planning on selling a nh I have.. but that's about it.. guess it depends on what someone was willing to offer on one..

I bet they are worth more there after the storm that just happened.. seeing 400 China junk listed for 800 bucks.. and people from Oregon and ny listing commercial gens there for big buck's..

Put both my contractor series ccks and 3.0 dsl in the back of the duelly.. used 8 500 pound working load straps to secure them.. hope that's good enough.. went around the block and hit the breaks hard a few times and turned corners sharp to set all the straps.. really only worried about the dsl falling over as it's really top heavy.. guess I'll find out on the 30th when I pick it up in Miami
