To check the oil pressure sending unit dont disconnect it but instead jump the terminals.

I will have to look. I had the carb replaced also. What is the part number?

I'll try that also. Just had the oil changed also. Will look at it when it shuts down again and try your idea. Just put a piece of wire between the two wires that connect to the oil pressure switch after disconnecting them from the switch?

I'm about to add a power washer pump upstream. That should do it. LOL. Need a little laugh.

The top filter is hidden behind the air filter housing.

Onan A026E529 Adapter, Fuel Line

The filter at the bottom is:
Onan 149-2341-01 Filter-Fuel

Replaced the one underneath with the Fuel Pump. Will check to see if there is still one up top or the adapter on the newer carb.

Thanks.

Mine did this and first replaced old fuel line from tank to gen. Better,but still sounded like vapor lock. Everybody said no way....found about 18 inches slack in the fuel.line, cut out slack and it has been running great now for 2 years

I took a look today at the Genset and got a lot of ideas from everyone. Thank you so much. My newer carb doesn't have the 2nd fuel filter attached. It is just a tube to the carb. Didn't see any kinks in the fuel line either. Even though it was just serviced about a month ago I took a look at the oil level and noticed it was below the ADD line. That caught me by surprise. I filled it up to a little underneath the FULL line. Maybe it was the low oil pressure switch shutting it down. I'll let you know after I have an opportunity to run it in the heat for an extended amount of time.

So far so good. Must have been low oil pressure. Generator has been running for 2 days straight in Texas heat and hasn't shut down.

I have two problems with the 5500 I used to have. Bad fuel pump. Worked ok most of the time, but sometimes would cut out while running or stop in a few seconds after starting. Another problem was that it would not keep running with the coach moving - stationary it was ok. Found that if the oil level was not up to the tippy top (not just to the full mark), the low oil sensor would activate.
