Default Onan 15 KW Model 15.OR.JC3R/24013AC


I just joined Smokstak, looks like a great site!

Have an Onan 15.OR.JC3R/24013AC Electric Plant, have had it for several years and never needed it until now. I read some post about some of these units having a carburetor that will work on gasoline or propane or natural gas, I am thinking this unit was setup for gasoline, but not sure? it came with a new in box 10 gallon Onan factory gas tank, so I am guessing the former owner had a larger tank that was used. I posted some photos, first one shows the gas line where I guess it hooked to gas tank, it has a check and solenoid valve.

I need to get it up and running, have not filled with oil yet, the govt. agency I bought it from always drains fluids before an item is sold, was reading a thread that said the older engines with flat type cam lifters need an oil with an additive or the lifters will wear fast - that most oils today are for newer engines with roller lifters that contact the camshaft.

I want to run the unit on gasoline.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
