onan ww2 generator

Recommended Posts

My friend is selling a ww2 Onan generator; it is the two cylinder vertical side valve about 2-3kw.

I had considered having it as a stand by and for some site work which it has been used for over the last half century.

Does any one have any experience with them? I imagine that it will be a heavy drinker of fuel.

The last one that changed hands on the bay of e only made £85 pounds in tidy condition; is that about the sum of it? as a similar diesel would be considerably more sought after.

Potentially a sad ending for such a useful tool.


Unfortunately it falls between someone wanting a mobile Generator but preferring cheaper to run modern reliability and vehicle owners not really having a use for it, finding a box trailer more practical.


No doubt someone will use it for a display, I hope so.
