Default Re: Onan MDKD 6.5 overheaded and shut down

Hi Yobo
I have an Onan 6.5 MDKD as well . Mine is my Carbineer 46. Its done 4000 hrs & runs well ,i recently replaced the orberdorfer raw water pump & most the cooling hoses. I got rid of the metal tube in the water hose & ran a heavy hose that would hold the bend without colapsing. I flushed the cooling system with Cat coolant flush. Its was very clogged up in there needed a piece of wire to unclogg the drain. My board failed & i replaced it $600 not cheap for a very simple circuit. I also replaced the rear bearing in the Alternator a rather difficult job.
I have had difficulty finding what type of Kubota engine is fitted. Cant find any numbers on it. Im wanting to adjust the valves & need the correct tollerances.
If you can show me where you found the D950 id I will look on mine.
Im in Cairns at present leaving to sail up up to TI on Friday.
I see your in Brisvegas.

Thanks I have been searching for these for ages I owe you a beer.

There is a casting number on the block directly behind the raw water pump it should say 927cc which would make it a D950 motor. Cheers Dan
It's always something simple.
One test is worth a thousand guesses.
If some is good and more is better then too much is just enough
