I'd sell that one there and keep this one here if I were you. Merry Christmas and a great New Year to all

Start the Onan up listen to it run for about 10 minutes, then shut it off and start the 4A032. The correct decision will be clear almost immediately.

And I dont even have a muffler on the Onan and I can figure that one out. I was thinking "cool" factor though.

Just checking to see if I am missing something or not. Whats a good asking price for a 180 hr, clean, excellent running 4A032?

Ask $10,000 and come down from there until it sells.

Better place a chain and lock around both, as they (gen's) sometimes just evaporate in this area.
