Onan 16 1/2 rebuild Cost?

Recommended Posts

Well, we made the decision to keep the 4040 but must get the engine in better condition. We discussed replacing the Onan with a Honda, but wow..a big cost involved with that. Can anyone give me an idea of what it should cost to have the CCKA 16 1/2 Onan rebuilt at a small engine shop? Thanks :o)

At a shop....a LOT! Depends on what parts & machining it'll need, but minimum of $500 most likely, on up to max of $800+. I could never afford my garden tractor hobby if I didn't do all my own work.

Oh, BTW, maybe it will be cost prohibitive, so you can always give me a call.....I'll be glad to take that 4040 off your hands! :D You may find it cheaper to repower with a newer engine, but that old engine is a tough bird!

Dan's not too far from the mark.... Usually, the rebuilt Onan's take a LOT to kill them off when done over. It amazes me that most I get are on their STD piston size after 20 plus years! JP
