You mean to say you disagree? If so...either something is funky with the coloration in the pics or one of us is going color-blind.

I think it's the lighting in the photos. The picture of the control end after installation shows the true shade of Onan "green" on my monitor.

Re: CHANGED AGAIN! THIS WILL BE IT!!

Yes, it does look blue. For some reason my I-phone shows a lot of things blue that are not supposed to be. Maybe depends on the light. Maybe its just the way the I-phone is. I dunno. But the picture showing it installed is the true color. Its a very close match to the Onan green.

Re: CHANGED AGAIN! THIS WILL BE IT!!

Going thru the pics I noticed that people drills and welds chassis as they need. Every truck chassis carries several warnings against this practice because it creates stress points that will lead to chassis fracture. Safest method is to make a brace that will go tightly around the frame until it meets with itself again, then welded or bolted on itself.

Re: CHANGED AGAIN! THIS WILL BE IT!!

I have the same genny mine is a 6.5NH model. Don't give up on it...I recommend to remove the heads and clean the valves and crud off the piston(These unit's carbon up bad and it will run sucky) Cleaning the heads takes a 2 or 3 hours and a wire wheel on your drill) where the fuel line goes into the engine disconnect and use a short hose 2 feet long and stick it in a bottle of seafoam) much cheaper and faster than rebuilding a carb) will do wonders for that) these ofton get a surge issue from Clogged jet, carbon build up running this threw the engine will save alot of future or current headachs. It's a great genny and there are many tips and great tricks to keeping it running another 20years. It is very smooth and very quiet more quiet than many new rv gensets.
