Default Free Onan 15.0JC-18R/13704AB and equipment

Free to a good home

This was the start of a project to give my shop three phase power. I'm too old to do the job and Con Edison wants too much to install the three phase feed. Someone take this before it gets ruined completely. It's been sitting under a tarp for a couple of years.

Three phase circuit breaker panel - Square D NQOD42L225CU 225 amps, 240 volts 42 positions

Three phase safety switch (disconnect) - Square D 200 amp, 240 volts

Onan LTD200-24/1448A Load Transfer Switch - Three phase, 200 amps, four wire, 120/208 volts, 50/60 Hz

Onan 15.0JC-18R/13704AB s/n A800475455, 12 volt battery required
(I have a battery, probably good that you can take)

5 cans of paint to match Onan colors

Spool of MTW wire to re-wire the controls

Muffler & flex pipe

Pictures at Generator

You have to take everything...
Located near Ossining, NY 10562

First one to confirm that they'll pick it all up will get it (all, no returns!!!)

Forgot the wire - 25 or 50 feet of three phase feed line, aluminum. Take it if you want it.

I do not know how many KW you need out of a generator but, you can get 12.5 KW single phase out of that generator!

Thank You for offering it up to us STAKERS!!!!! If I was anywhere close I would be on my way!

Thank you for the very generous offer! I am sure there are many here who would grab it in a heartbeat if they were close enough. As for myself, time and space constraints make it impossible for me to get it. I hope you find a taker soon.

As per MapQuest it is a 1 hour drive from my place in North Jersey to Ossining, NY (see attached picture below).

At this very moment I have my Grand Cherokee topped off with gas and parked next to the trailer. Today, I have nothing special planned with family and friends. It is very tempting, but I've already restored a 15.0 JC, fixed and flipped a 15 RJC that was given to me for pennies since the owner could not sell it since the demand for 3 phase only gensets is a limited market, and I'm looking for an Onan 1 phase genset with a Kubota diesel motor for my next project. I'm most likely one of the closest to Biser's location, but I just don't have a need for it.

If the transfer switch was a 1 and 3 phase switch, I'd be there since it is a 200 amp switch, but it is 3 phase

** On a positive note, is this genset tri-fuel???? Look at my second picture. Without doubt it will run propane and natural gas, but look at the main jet adjustment rod for gasoline that extends from the bottom of the float bowl and through the tin. Looks to be like the tri-fuel carb on my JB. None of my other J series vapor only carbs had that. The carb alone is worth the trip if it is tri-fuel. I'm sure Leon may want the starter. It looks like a Prestolite, not a Mitsubishi which came out later.... None the less, if the genset can be revived it should not be parted in my opinion.


Update:: I think I see electric choke wires and connectors at the carb. I would bet a coffee it is a tr-fuel set.

I would imagine that some three phase switches could be "tricked" into working on single phase. But I have NO idea if this may be one of them!

My very limited experience on ATS's is some switches are 1 and 3 phase and to change them it could be as simple as moving a multi-wire connector from one location to another. My LT II switch can be configured from 1 to 3 phase of many different voltages in less than 15 seconds. I attached a picture below, but it is not the best example. The switch up for grabs is a 3 phase switch as per the data tag on the switch. I believe if it was compatible for single phase, it would be indicated on the data tag.
