vdrive,
The credit belongs to you for finding the info. I just sanitized the link so it would work with one click. It does look like I found the info due to the way BT just moved my post from your original thread, with the link to the sticky. Again the credit belongs to you.

David C.

I am having trouble downloading the manual, it just sits there at 119kb. I have a very fast 21mbit connection so it should go pretty fast.
Thanks,
John

This file downloads fine. If you are having trouble, try it at a different time of day as the internet does perform differently based upon daily and regional loads. Also, you might need to delete your temporary internet files to provide ample space in your web browser / pdf reader for the download. Once downloaded, save the file to your hard drive!

Whatever the case, thanks to David C for the file address. It is now in my Onan document file too.

Thank you all for the very informative Onan Master Service Manual.

For all of us interested in resurrecting old Onan machines, there is still missing a key bit of information that must be out there somewhere.

And that is the Onan factory option codes. Sure would be nice to know what factory options were included in the model numbers.

Still unable to download the manual. Deleted Temporary files, tried both Firefox and Internet Explorer. Both say they cannot display the page. Anyone know of another link that is compatible with Firefox or Internet Explorer?

I have tried all hours of the day and night, it is now 1:30 AM, same problem.

Thanks,

Jim

I was able to locate the Master Service Manual here:

http://tampatech.net/workshop/manual...e%20Manual.pdf

This site also had all the manuals for my 6.5NH which I just acquired. Onan rules.

Default Re: Onan Master Service Manual

Hello David,

I've not yet downloaded the Onan master manual but I have a question: Does the manual have an overall wiring diagram? My Onan 25EC-4R8/12J (25KW, 120/208 Volts, 3-Phase, 86.5 Amps) has an 07SX1N1C magnaciter. I can't yet account for all the magnaciter wiring even though I've printed all the diagrams from this forum. Also, I can't account for the exciter startup. It appears necessary to flash the field with a 12-volt battery during startup before self-excitation becomes available but I've not yet found a diagram for this...

Theres lots of good info here. I was kinda surprised I didnt see what I need. I have a Lincwelder 225 powered by a CCKA S/3522J. It runs good but doesnt speed up when I strike an arc. Is there another source of info for this? Thanks

The auto idle control is made by Lincoln. You will need a lincoln manual to troubleshoot. If you will PM me an e-mail address I can send you an operators manual and parts list. Not everything you might want but better than nothing.
