Default "New to me" Onan 30EK

30EK -4R871675A serial number 0969131584

I have lost my CD of documentation - so could one of you guys take pity on me and furnish the build sheet? This one is a bit different- gasoline fueled only.

I did not find it, got close but lacking the last 2 numbers.

Maybe one of the "pros" can have better luck.

I looked also no luck. I posted it in the other thread but its gone unless i posted it in the wrong post. It wasn't correct though.

Thanks. That is probably correct. I have not even looked at the tag for myself yet. Got home, parked the truck, put the set's battery on a charger and called it a day.

120/208, eh? Is it really a 12-wire set though?

I'm thinking that it is probably going to have only 4 wires that are readily accessible, but have not looked into it yet.

Dropped my phone a while back and took out the camera lens, pics look like viewing thru a heavy fog. Appreciate the quick response from you guys, this is the first gasoline EK I have seen.

The battery appears to be bad, but it didn't hurt to try. 30EK-4R8/1675A is the correct number.

Planning to try cranking it up tomorrow. Have a couple of oil filters on hand, oil and coolant. Since I don't have anything else to go on, I'll guess that it last ran in 2014, since the battery is dated with same.
