Re: Generator woes (please help) by Jerry Durmis
Post New Message I have a 1977 Executive on a Dodge chassis and a 6.5 Onan Generator. Had similar problems It would run about an hour then stop. Each time I started it after it was warm it would run only 10-15 minutes. I installed a clear inline fuel filter and saw that it would fill full of air (or vacumn)and restrict the amount of fuel getting to the fuel pump. I'm still working on it. But the last time I had it out it ran then after a few hours stopped. I disconected the fuel line and let it drain till the inline filter was full of fuel. Started it up and it ran a few more hours.
I've read on other boards that the oil flow switch could cause this type of problem and the fix was to jumper out the switch. This sounds risky and besides I couldn't figure out how to get to the switch.
Hope this helps.
