Linmar engine

Recommended Posts

Hi, Onan sold off the engine business several years ago to Linamar in Canada. They kept the generator business and in recent years have been putting Robin engines by Mitsubshi in them. Cummins Great Plains owns Onan and marketed the Linamar Onans. RUMOR was that Linamar would make the capital committment to upgrade the engines to comply with future emmissions standards. This has not appeared to happen. The RUMOR WAS and I say RUMOR was back last Summer that if someone didn't buy Linamar and throw some money in R&D that they would not be able to sell engines in the US in 2004, or maybe make 2004 but not 2005 EPA specs. The RUMOR is that the end may be getting near. No one seams to know what Cummins will do concerning it. AS I SAID RUMOR! Merry Christmas. Al Eden
