coupling 20 HP Onan

Recommended Posts

Leroy
I have the 7117 and the motor went out after after the second year of mowing. Many folks say they had an oiling problem so i have avoided a direct replacement and found a 20 HP onan. I have heard they are very strong motors But then i heard that about kohler too. I dont have a coupler for it and was wondering if anyone has had any luck with the lovejoy couplers or shaft to shaft couplers or shaft to flat of any other brand?

I think at one time Onan was an engine offered by Simplicity. This site has many ways of finding out. For starts look in engine information. As far as Lovejoy, it would take some imagineering to make it work, but it might have been done by somebody.

Hi Leroy, I would go with the kohler ohv series. It is a very reliable motor, and has great torque output. Plus you can order the kit from Al Eden, or the parts from simplicity. In addition, the parts for the kohlers are less expensive. Onan is the only military small engine ( as far as I know) from all of the american manufactures. This means the parts are expensive!

Hmm... I’m not sayin'' they’re ''cheap''. If I could afford to go Honda, I would. As one of the posts in an earlier forum noted, Onan parts are available from Sears and, sometimes cheaper! I can re-ring, re-grind the valves and seals & gaskets on a CCKB for about 400. It’s A LOT cheaper than 1200 for the Honda. I don’t know I’d tackle the repower myself, I agree w/Neal. If you want to do that, Al's a pretty reputable guy & quite knowledgeable. I would probably go that way if they didn’t have a ''drop in'' engine for it. Yet, Another opinion! JP

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
