Sounds like a slow fuel pump, i have a kohler engine that will run all night long, as soon as the sun hits it, it starts stalling out, if i pull the choke closed a little it will stay running.
After doing this for a year, I finally put in a new fuel pump, its all good now.

Could be a slow pump. I still think just replacing the orig fuel pump will fix the issue. The Onan Service guy out right refuses to say the fuel pump is bad without even testing it. He insists that the fuel line is collapsing because it needs a booster, even though he has not proven this. Right now I am stuck between the dealer / warranty and Onan Service. Onan is wanting $425 to attach a $100 booster pump. Ridiculous in my book. The dealer / warranty are saying this Onan guy is full of it and trying to charge way way too much. I think I am starting to agree. Wondering if the Onan guy is just looking to gouge the warranty. Why else would he out right refuse to even consider the original fuel pump as the issue and demand $425 for a booster? Any thoughts?

Is your intake and exhaust for the cooling air unobstructed and open to outside air? Our experience with the Onan genny is that they tend to get hot if not we'll ventilaed, and then have issues running.

For now I'm gonna replace the plugs, check the fuel line, make sure the fan is clean, and buy one of these as soon as I can get to the pump in the MH and make sure this is the right replacement.

....and so far as running too hot, I opened the compartment, removed the genny cover, and still had the problem. The existing FP is 16 years old and doesn't get used a lot. Prime conditions for deterioration. We don't know if we're keeping the MH or not, but either way I want it right.

My 5500 is the 2007 model, I don't imagine they have changed much. I just looked at mine, and the pump you are looking at is the correct one. The main differences I've seen is the output connection. The 1105 has a straight connection, some of the others have a 90 degree output. The pump is located on the bottom of the generator, easy to replace.

^^^^ Yeah, that was my only concern. I don't want to fabricate stuff or add another elbow unless I have to. And since it's gonna rain for the next 8-10 days, looks like there's no hurry. Thanx for looking.

I went through all the above actions and finally took matters in my own hands. I insulated the entire fuel line back as far as I could go then wrapped with foil tape, all available ad your local HD. Gen hasn't missed a lick since even in 110 degree weather. Cheap fix to try.

When you removed the cover, it did not help, and most likely made matters worse. The cover is needed for proper air flow.

I thought about this. I have some header wrap left over from doing the exhaust on my off road vehicle. This stuff was pricey, and it just sits in the barn. Certainly couldn't hurt.

Regarding removing the cover....that was just a test while in the desert. Didn't make anything better or worse. I was just clutching at straws.
