On a sillier note...

OK, I'm going silly at work here on a Friday afternoon.

Isn't there anyone else here who gets sophmoric humor from the long, earnest discussions about Onans? Who in their right mind would ever name an electrical generator after a notorious Biblical sin incident? It's somewhat akin the British vacuums that "really suck" and selling the Chevy "Nova" (Spanish for "doesn't go") in Mexico. Sheesh!

When your Onan breaks down, just don't start drawing Lots ...

Oh, I'd better get back to my statistical report before I get too far down the rabbit hole...

Mary

I simply can not let this go unanswered. Onan is a wonderful name for a generator. This a machine with pistons which continously pump and spew out electricity. There is no act of consumation, fullfillment, conception, or even true mechanical satisfaction since the pistons must continue pumping.

What a relief to have this one checked off on “THE LIST”
I can't believe that I'm still having problems with my genset.
Where exactly is the low oil pressure switch?

Thanks,

I found the low oil pressure switch, and along the way I found a manual posted online:
Onan Service Manual for BF/BFA/BGA/NH: 900-0337: Page 49

Ok, I'll shut up now...I figured out the problem when I pulled the carb. Thing runs like a champ now. I think a picture says 1,000 words in this case.
