J.D.316/Onan 16hp starter needed !

Recommended Posts

JimC_Vt
Hello all, The trial and tribulations of a 1984 J.D.316 continues to haunt me ....I lost spark and had to buy a new coil and plug wires ($130.00) once these were installed ,I tried starting the engine and the starter ups and quits...."Pulled the motor" to remove the starter (that was fun) and disassembled the starter finding 2 of the four brushes gone and one of the wires busted on the armature :o( Called my loacal J.D. Dealer and they stated that the starter for the Onan is N.L.A. "No Longer Available",it's a 1984 ,come on someone has to have a starter kicking around somewhere .... Anyhow it's a Onan 16hp twin cylinder Mod-B43E-GA016,and I need a starter for the old girl ASAP... any leads would be appreciated ! Thanks Jim P.S.Nothin runs like a deere ????

Is it possible for you to find some old guy that runs a starter/alternator shop and have your's rebuilt? Had alternator problems several years ago on a Saturday afternoon while traveling through a small town in Arkansas (Paris, I seem to remember). Parts stores didn't have the alternator I needed and couldn't get it until later in the week. But they suggested I take it to this guy that had been working on starters, generators, alternators for years. He had the capability to do everything to include rewinding them. Anyway all I needed was some new brushes, which he built from the carbon rod inside an old zinc flashlight D cell. Only charged about $30 for the labor, and didn't charge for the parts because the D cell came out of the trash. /r David
