- Where are you located
and what are your hours?
-Our address is 22037 Howell Drive, New Lenox, IL 60451. We are open Monday
through Friday 8AM to 4:30PM Central time. We are closed Saturdays, Sundays
and the usuall holidays.
- My Onan engine is
pretty bad, do you sell new engines or rebuilt ones?
-Onan no longer manufactures any version of the twin cylinder opposed engine.
There are some companies out there that will sell you a kit to put a diffrent
brand engine out there, but we do not. We do not sell rebuilt engines, we
rebuild yours. There are much to many variations in the Onan engine and options
available that it is just too difficult to have the engine you need on hand.
Send your engine in for an estimate to rebuild it.
- Where can I find a
parts breakdown on the web?
-You can't. Well perhaps you will find one, but it is copywritten information
that we prefer to not get in trouble over. Please call and we will happily
look up the parts for you or possibly fax or e-mail you a picture or two to
help you identify your parts.
- Where can I find torque
specifications, dimentions and clearances for rebuilding my engine?
-Most of this common information is located on the "Technical Information"
portion of this site.
- I am looking to rebuild
my Onan myself, will you sell me parts?
YES! We stock tons of Onan parts, including the major rebuild parts.
- I am on a quest for
an obsolete part, can you help me?
-Sure we stock many obsolete parts, not everything, but we snatch up everything
we can find. A few items may be used or reconditioned, but it is better than
nothing. We also have relationships with other dealers and warehouses that
carry parts, so we can check our sources for you.
- Will you buy my old
Onan engine from me?
-Maybe. It really depends what model and its current condition. Don't expect
to make a bunch of money though. We do not sell rebuilts or used engines so
we would strip it for the valuable parts and scrap the rest. Keep in mind
we are located in Illinois and will not pay much for shipping.
- I have a Linimar engine,
do you carry parts for it?
-Yes, and no. Linimar built the Onan engine for Onan for a number of years
so everything is interchangeable with a coresponding Onan model. But, they
also made engines for other companies as well as their own engine. Give us
a call, we will help the best we can.
- I need a part really
bad, will you UPS Next Day Air the part to me?
-Yes. We ship UPS everyday and would happily ship however UPS ships to you.
- I am looking for a
part, will you give me the part number?
-Sorry, No. We take a lot of pride in our knowledge of the Onan engine line
and feel that our knowledge is worth a sale. Its very hard to run a business
and have a customer save $1.20 from some other guy. Our prices are very competitve
and sometimes downright cheap. We encorage you to check around for prices,
we just will not give you the part numbers.
- My block is junk,
is it rebuildable?
-Maybe. We do have blocks on hand for this reason. It all depends on the damage
- It looks like all
you do is Onan engines, do you do anything else?
-Yes. We have been in business for almost 30 years and involved with many
engine manufacturers. Please see our parent webpage, Enginemasters Inc., to
see our other product lines.
- Do you have parts
for generators too?
-Yes. We do a lot of generator work as well. We stock many voltage regulators
and common control boards. Call and have your model number ready.
- I don't have a model
number or cannot read my tag anymore, what can I do to get some parts?
-Well it is very important to get your model number, or even a partial number
from the tag. Without this information it is a little more difficult to determine
the correct parts for your engine. Call with as much information as possible,
we will do our best to help or at least tell you what information we need
for the specific part you are looking for.
- Your website mostly
focuses on the twin cylinder opposed Onan engine, do you rebuild or get parts
for Onans other engines?
-Yes. Parts are available for the single cylinder and the other multicylinder
engines. The twin is the most common and what we do the most of.
- I have a military
Onan engine or generator, can you get me parts?
-Not sure. The military used some consumer model engines on their equipment
as well as engines built exclusively for the military. Military generators
are usually where there is a problem. We do not have parts books or service
for any military application. If you have part numbers we will do our best,
but usually they lead to a dead end.
- Can you help me with
an Onan Marine generator?
-Yes. We do quite a few generator repairs in house. We do not stock many parts
for the marine units but many parts are still available.
- I bought new camshaft
bearings and they look thinner, are they the right ones?
-Yes. Onan changed the service part for the camshaft bearings quite a while
ago. End users were constantly damaging the old wide style bearings upon installation
causing angry customers. These are the correct camshaft bearings provided
by Onan and we have used them in our shop with no problems.
- I am cheap, do you
sell aftermarket Onan parts?
-NO! We have not found any aftermarket parts that meet the demands of our
customers. We insist on Green Label Original Cummins Onan Parts. There is
often a good reason why aftermarket parts cost less, its the quality.
