Looking for this part. Substitute? Workaround?
I've checked a lot of sites, even the local Onan Shop. Where else can I check? Is there a Generator-R-Us?

Cummins Onan Generator 3600 KY (LP)
MicroLite 4000 Series

BTW, Is my signature showing up? The box is checked, but I don't see it.

Thanks! Phil

See my suggestions on your other thread. We once bought an old rig and kept putting big money in it for repairs and replacements felt stuck with it, finally sold it for $4500 and bought a new rig.

go to a small engine shop and see if they have replacement electronic ignition parts and install one. Had issue on an old gen and when went looking for parts they told me to get rid of the ignition and sold me an add on electronic setup.

I have learned to never go solely by other's comments as stock levels can change daily or their comment could be from years ago. I would recommend calling them to see if it's available.

Having an older RV, I often come across "out of stock" online messages only to find they have 1 or 2 in stock when I called. Oftentimes, the message is generated when they stock falls below a certain level.

You should also get to know your regional RV salvage yards as they are a great source for older parts.

I'm still looking, will be calling some places tomorrow. Also going to take it to the small engine shop Saturday. And trying to find a good used one that's not 1500 to 3000 miles away.

Thanks again.
