Found a clothes washer rough-in...... in a secret compartment behind the closet. (Doorside mid). Didn't see a dryer vent outlet.

Some washer/dryer combos were ventless. Vented are the preferred if you decided to get one.

What problems are you having. My local guru may be able to help via this forum but you couldn't afford his service call rate at the distance we live apart.

I replace the Waljunko battery (from po, 15 months old, 1 year warranty) and replaced it with an Interstate battery, 3 year warranty. Doesn't anyone put out a 5 year battery any more?????

She fires right off then starts to surge. I can hold the governor closed and she will Idle for a while then start surging when I let off the governor. I have replaced the fuel pump, plugs get black as black can get.(going on 3rd set) even with the choke open or closed. I have over 1/2 tank of fuel, just changed the oil, filter and air cleaner.
It ran the best it has ever ran one day and the next day this happened.
We have owned her going on 4 years and have never had anything happen. Ran great. She has 290 hours on her. 1982 Onan 6.5
Thanks,Tim

I'll give Gary a call when he's available. (Works a thousand miles from here on his real job) and pass on what he says.

That Onan is probably not getting enough spark. That's why plugs are fouling. There's a little box on top with the ignition points inside. The points operate off a bump rod that rides on the camshaft.

The points could be bad or dirty. Or the box can get loose and the rod won't open them enough anymore. Also the gasket can leak and the box will fill up with oil.

It's easy to fix and doesn't cost much of anything. But you have to get to the box and that means you probably need to drop the generator down.

A floor jack and some wood blocks will come in handy.

painting vinyl dash

I am thinking, ok, well going to paint the vinyl and plastic on the dash, I have painted the vinyl and plastic on the drivers door and passenger side of the cab area, just wondering, has anyone done this, and how has it held up if you have,,,,
I did the other areas thinking if it failed the I could get it upholstered later, anyway just had the question, I guess I can have the dash area upholstered later too,,,,
any thoughts would be appreciated
