Got the generator apart today. Found the oil fill hose was going bad. Below is a picture of the cracks in hose.
Not wanting to tear into the engine I have decided to leave the old plastic part of dip stick in crankcase. Been there for 5 years now.
Went to Onan to get parks I needed to make repairs on my list.
MY QD5500 is a older model and required a new hose assembly, bracket and Dip Stick.
All I got to say is Onan must be real proud of their engineering mistakes.
This is what over $170 looks like.
Should have everything back together by end of weekend. Will install back in MH later this month.
A flooring project got in the way of getting this job done. The 4th of July. Then---------------. Well you know how it goes.
Got it done.
Generator is running great like it always did.
Put new fill hose and dip stick in.
New circuit breaker.
Change oil and Filter.
Changed air filter.
Cleaned and painted any area that showed rust.
I took a few hours to get generator installed. My helper was not available to guide me while getting it in place. Climbing on and off tractor to make sure that everything was aligned properly wears me out.
Took lots of pictures but not of the install.
