Re: Generator help/ opinions of this model

good to know cause I was going to use rotella in it when the time came to change it? I dont mind using higher end products like synthetics but I know most of the newer ones dont have the additives some of the older engines need for wear protection?

Ill have to give it thought.

Yes the manuals are terrible. Even though I have the right ones they dont show some of these conversions (gas to LP) and some of the parts? This wont stop me but may slow me down. Its just makes for a good challenge.

Thanks for your help.

I appreciate it
Here is my school bus conversion thread

I know my dad loves Husquavarna chainsaws, and from his experience, using the Husquavarna oil makes all the difference on if it's an awesome chainsaw or a dog with no power ...

That said, I have -no- experience with the Onan. I'm only going with the company oil bit for that -one- situation.
