Affirmative, Senoir Donno...I've got to be at our Anaheim branch tomorrow, and things might get hectic, but I'll see what I can do (first I gotta brave that friggin' 91 parking lot- 50 miles away, and I bet it takes me 2 hours to get there).

Talked to an Onan guru in Renton,Wa this morning.(Jim Woodcock 1-877-853-5559) His comments were that he is not aware of any fuel pump recall by Onan. There are no tech service letters concerning fuel pump failures. He suggest the problem is an inadequate fuel supply which will cause the engine to do a failsafe shutdown. He said that considering the lenth of supply line from the rear positioned tank to the genset would require a 1/2"id fuel line. To his knowledge only a 1/4"id line is used by WW. Weather the fix belongs to Onan or WW remains to be seen I guess.

alright Hoverbug !
some more investigative analysis.

And i don't mean to cast any aspersions towards my longtime favorite WW, but at this point with some of the issues going on , if i had to have WW or Onan watch my back in a dark alley, i think I might put some trust in what an Onan tech suggested.

Whats exactly the deal here ??

If its fuel starvation, wouldn't the gen fire up after gas has a chance to refill the bowl? Unless the engine failsafe shutdown needs some kind of reset.

This might be time for Wes to roust the whole system up again with another one of his industry-wide shakeup questions.

What I found particularly curious that there was mention of a recall but but the Onan tech was not aware of one. The issue is the pump overheating trying to draw through too thin a straw. But I have not yet checked the fuel line on my unit.

I think the recall statement was just a rumer. I think the Onan tech might be on to something but if WW uses 1/4" fuel line (which they do mine is anyway) and this is not suficiant than we should have seen problems for the last few years from all models of WW. My gen would run for 15 min and die and I would have to crank on and stop about 10 times before it finaly started. It was on the second day of this when it finaly would not start at all and I started to investagate. The pump was not hot though. It would not pump fuel into the sand. I could siphion fuel out of the tank so i know there was not a Blockage unless there is a pice of something in the tank moving around and pluging the line causing the engine to die. and then moving around after the suction subsided. If I install the new pump and it goes bad I will install the bigger fuel line. It would be easy to do by buying a couple new fittings and the new fuel line.

Are you sure your fuel line is 1/4"? Mine is 3/8". Quarter is just too small, IMHO. I've never had any trouble with mine, knock on wood. That is except for the little knob on the timer in the pump station breaking cause I turned it the wrong direction. And, you can figure on .6 gals of fuel per hr with air on. Thats what mine uses.

Tom I'm talking about the Gen Fuel line not the pump station. It is 3/8 and works fine. The gen is 1/4...I think. I'll know for sure tonight when I put the pump in.

Man, I'll go look. I thought my line to the gen was 3/8. Since I have to go mow tonight I'll take a look. Need to check my D-con anyway. Got a mouse that thinks the gen compartment is his new home. Gonna fix that!

Well, I'm wrong. Its 1/4. What can I say except its been working fine. I looked underneath and it must have 3 filters in line just before the gen. I hate to think about changing all those.
