Onan Microlite Crank Bolt Torque
About to reach wits end with my onan KY 4000 Microlite.
Already dropped unit twice; once to clean slip rings, second to find a questionable wire from rings to stator.
Now this time I torqued the "crank" bolt that holds the fan hub on with the rubber washer underneath it. So how can it be torqued if there is a rubber component? It doesn't really have a "stop" and that seems to overtighten things.
So now the flywheel is harder to turn (I figured it was just loose before) and the starter can barely turn it over. I'm afraid I'll have to drop it again as I cannot stop the fan hub from turning with the cover on.
