Default Onan MDJE Namplate Location

Any body know where is the location of the nameplate on my Onan MDJE generator (manufactured about 1982)? Looked all over the thing and can't find it. Need to find the nameplate because that information seems to be the only way the Onan-Cummins dealer can find information on the injection pump. KiKi injection pump has developed leak where the outlet valves thread into the pump body.

Most of the time. It is on the belt guard up front. Look for six numbers stamped into the block. That is the serial number. Should be around the oil fill tube.

I have 8 or so MDJE/B s and half of them don't have a nameplate anywhere on them. Cheers Dan

Hey Dan, I would pay a good price for a Kiki injection pump on one of those if you want to part out.

Found two holes in the flywheel housing where nameplate was supposed to be. Wonder why Onan made this attachment so fragile.
Injector pump won't have to be replaced. I found leak was caused by broken copper seal washer behind delivery valve.

Thanks to all who replied and to the forum!
