I just got a tune-up set...plugs (no prob. Champ RL95YC), points are aftermarket as Onan is no longer making them available. Got a condenser too, plus an air filter.

I will stash these until the engine shows signs of needing a tune up.

You can find some older parts through a Cummins diesel dealership with a parts warehouse or their website. Maybe not everything but some.

My RV dealer still had the points for our BF(something)... Sorry, forgot the model number suddenly.

Don't be afraid to talk to your local Cummins parts man.

Some times the part is available but cannot be ordered thru the computer system.

I needed a plate that covers the brushes for a NHE 6.5, spec A.  First time he tried to order it came back as not available.  Turns out that there were 3 available at the factory.  He had to force a manual order and in it came.


Up until I gave my 1970 model onan away I used Engine Masters


They have a lot of NOS parts they bought up and sell them for less than Cummings.  I talked to Jeff he was knowledgeable on the old onans.


Thanks Mate I have a 5000 and a 4000 that run half assed and was ready to us them as boat anchors. Down sick at the moment but when I get back out in the shop I'll give these boys a call. Thanks for that information. :)ThmbUp


This site is a forum for old engines... http://ppeten.com/forums/index.php  may be a source for finding parts.. I used to get some parts and repair stuff from the original http://www.perr.com/  site but the folks running it retired and no longer sell parts.  Info is still there though.
