I bought a champion 8500 onan performer p216g yesterday to keep on my service truck, it was in pretty rough shape, wasn't even sure if it ran, plus it doesn't have a hour meter so it was a gamble, but i picked it up for $350 so i'm happy. Took it home, changed out oil, gas, all the filters, spark plugs and wires, battery, opened it up, blew it all out, it started right up runs good, welds, outlets work. One of the plug wire terminals were corroded and stuck inside the coil and I had to drill out, worked out good. All I need now is a new rheostat, (about half of it is burned out), one of the outlet circuit breakers, a new feul guage (the old one is busted and leaks feul out of it), and not sure if I should change out the brushes (the armature has some groves on it) what's the best place to get this stuff online? I found a miller rheostat on ebay but it was a 30 ohm version, the manual says this is a 10 ohm, will it work? Thanks for any help
Oh yeah, I also need to adjust the valves, any tutorial on this motor anywhere?
