Default Re: Onan emerald 1 genset manual

Hi, just got a motor home with 4000 Emerald Plus
4BGEFA26100P Spec P

Seems to run OK could be a little smoother and make quite a bit of noise. My old EF2500 Yamaha seems quieter. No hour meter on this one. I'd like to start by doing a complete service on it. I was steered to this site and glad I found it. I someone could send a manual it would be greatly appreciated. hjunderwood@comcast.net
Thanks

Two types of noise exhaust and engine noise. If it's engine noise can try adjusting the valves if they sound noisy.

I use a wood broom stick to probe around the engine to search for area that's making the noise. I cup end to my ear and listen. Use a hardwood broom stick if you want to hear the high frequencies better. With soft wood you hear less of the high freqencies.

Thanks for the link and advice. I do want to check the valve clearances. What I hear is more mechanical noise than the exhaust. It has a new muffler. I also think some sound deadening would help greatly. The way the manufacturer installed it leaves a lot of room for improvement.

Lightbulb Re: Onan emerald 1 genset manual

I have purchased a Ford Tioga 1986 motor home. It has a GenSet 4.0
I quote:

"Do you have a link for the "C" spec ? I also have the Emerald 1, but I think I have the C spec. My model is 4.0BGE-1R/26100C.
I couldn't negotiate the above site to find the manual."

I too would ask for a service manual. Onan emerald 1 genset manual.
Thanks for the site.

Eric

Hello,
I am new to this site and I am troubleshooting my Onan Genset. I was wondering if it would be possible to obtain a .pdf manual for
4.0 BGE-1R/26100Aa generator. I am certain that it would greatly help me get to know this unit.

Thank you for your time.

Jason

I have an Onan generator Model # 4BGEFA26100F Serial # E880121596. I got it running a while back with help from this forum. I tried to start it today and have no fire at the plugs. Would someone email me the service manual for this model. I am looking for information on bench testing the coil, condenser, etc.my email is mkf@iag.net Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank You
Mike
