That is quite an engine swap ,to have put a Onan twin in there.
Congratulations on it.

twin engines are the bomb, there fuel hungry monsters under the hood, i used to think single cylinders were great till i felt a 20 horse twin, made a 14 horse single look pathetic.

Coop, glad you have it running. I love the Onan I have. Lots of power. I see yours doesn't have an oil filter. Mine is a 16 horse also, think it is a B 43.
