Onan parts

Has anyone ever cross referenced an onan fuel filter 0149-2629 for a 5500 onan generator.

Thanks ahead of time

If you don't mind mail order, try A.S.A.P.. Have had good luck and pricing from them.
Good luck and safe travels

I tried NAPA which I figured if any one would have it they would and they didn't.

This place claims to have it for only $3.00
- 0149-2629 Onan Fuel Filter - Price: $3.00 - Factory RV Surplus - 1611 W Bristol St, Elkhart, IN 46514 (800) 325-1461 (574) 262-3327

A couple sources claim that number is obsolete and the 149-2629 has been replaced by the Onan 149-2341-01. See What other filter can you use for an onan 149-2629

No offense, (JMHO) but is it really worth saving $5.00 on some cheap filter for your $5000.00 generator? There are some things that you should just use the OEM parts. Often there are bypass and other configurations built into the OEM filters/parts. Aftermarket on autos is fine, but on these small high dollar engines.....pay the few extra dollars.

Dan If OEM is good for gens then I would think that OEM is good for auto engines too.Auto engines cost more than gen engines.


WIX does make exact replacements for Onan. Actually WIX makes Onan I believe.
For Onan oil filter122-0836 Wix 57398
Fpr Onan air filter 140-3116 Wix 49087

I use OEM parts for all of my engines. That way if one of them should crater and it is determined to have happened because of a filter failure the cost of the repair isn't on me. I have a friend that is a diesel tech. For a long time he was the only Cummins tech here where we live. Every time that he had a Cummins come in because of the engine cratering the first thing that Dodge told the service dept. manager was to tell the tech when he crated up the cratered engine was to be sure and include the fuel and oil filters in the return crate. A few extra bucks for the OEM filter is worth the peace of mind.

Onan/Cummins no longer sells the old style fuel filter for the Model # 5.5HGJAB-901A generator. The unit did use two fuel filters.

The same filter was used in two places, one on the top under the carb and and one on the fuel pump inlet.
Onan/Cummins now says only one filter is needed. The old style fuel filter is no longer available. This requires that you use an adapter in place of the top filter and the new slightly bigger diameter style filter --Fuel filter new style)(1) - #149-2341-01 on the fuel pump

"Onan Cummins" Parts:


1) Fuel filter new style)(1) - #149-2341-01

2) Adapter, Fuel Line *(1) - #A026E529 permanently replaces the upper fuel filter

Thanks much Clay I did find all this out but had top order a new fuel pump.

@ Diplomat Don we were camping and needed to try a replacement filter ASAP, normally I would you OEM parts but needed this to try to fix the generator.


Thanks all for your help!

That is the same fuel filter used on the older Ford 2 barrel carbs in the 60's & 70's. Should be available at any parts store.
