I just picked up a nice 316 late serial number so it has a 18 hp Onan engine . The nose cone is broken off The starter and of coarse the bendex
want engage. I pulled the engine and have it sitting on a table and have the starter off. Looks to be a new starter. My question is how it is
connected
To the engine. It has the two bolts thru the engine block that thread into the starter. It looks to me there should be a bracket that goes around
the starter that would fasten to those same bolts. Could some one tell me if I'm missing a part here. Thanks for your help!!!

I've got two of the Onan P series engines, 18 and 20 horse both on Wheel Horses, both bolt on with just two bolts. I can get them off a Wheel Horse in about 15 minutes/ no eng. removal involved.

Gosh, let's "think outside the box", here, but just for a moment,, and "just for giggles", unscrew the two bolts you've noticed and see what happens! Rolling Eyes

Oh, thanks oh wise one, I have the starter off in hand. It looks like there should be something else to attach to the bendix end of the starter.
Who knows this may be the wrong starter, causing it to break the nose cone off. But yes I knew how to get the starter off:) thanks

If it is a Performer series, two bolts is correct. If it looks like new, it may be an Oriental sourced replacement. They are known for having very weak castings and fail like that. IMO, look for an original starter and repair as needed.

What model engine is it. But as for as I know. Should be just two bolts. Holding the starter on.



Onan tech since 1980.
