Default Onan 12 ODJC-3CR/18611AD

Ser# C860 807463
120/240 1 phase
I have a chance to buy this bad boy for 1000.00
Of course it worked when taken out. I think the guy is honest??
It is missing the mounting feet and the wire fan guard (will I be Abel to find these parts ?)
Looks to to be in good shape,no hour meter, but the owner thinks not to many.
I won't be Abel to run it until I get it home and bolted down. So it's a little risk.
I will try to post some pictures when I get that figured out. Any info you guys can provide will be much appreciated. Thank you!!

All the parts you need are out there. Just have to look around. I see them on ebay at times. Some of the guys on here may have them.

I have the screen you need.. wiggle the arm coming out if the injection pump see if the shaft has any play up and down good way to tell the hours but it looks to clean to have alot but you never know, also if you can hook up a battery and crack the injection lines at the injectors and crank it over and see of fuel squirts out.. no fun rebuilding a stuck pump

To much money for missing parts and not running. Way to much.

Looks good , but for a $1000 I'ld want to see it run and make AC.

Electronic AC voltage reg, not magnaciter.

If it were a 15 KW set, I would already have been there to check it out. Yes, it is a gamble if you can not run it, but the price may go up if you start it up and test the gen-end.

If you can have a running complete DJC for $1,500 you done good. If 12 KW will fit your needs, I would go check it out.

Those missing rubber feet can be quite expensive. Onan Parts, a sponsor here, has them at a reasonable price. Even then, it is going to be near a $100 bill to replace them. If you look for them on Ebay, you better be sitting down when you see the asking price!

Diesels are simple engines, but when something breaks it can get expensive fast. I would not give anywhere near $1000 unless I could see it run and generate.
