    Hi Guys

    I have a Onan generator which runs on LPG, I've had it for a while and was wanting someone to get it up and running and do a good service on it, anyideas?

    I just dont have the time just now.

    I beleive Onan are a subsidery of Cummins US.I do have a service manual for the emerald series.Dont know what part of the country you are in but Dave at Cannock is prity good with them.Normaly there is not much that goes wrong with them,either they work or they dont.Does it start or not.

    The start button is designed to hold then release when engine fires. If it starts ,probably just needs clean air filter, oil filter and fresh oil.
    How many hours on the clock on the dashboard inside ?
