I am a new member looking for some help. I just picked up a Licoln weldanpower 225 with a 16hp onan engine. The problem is that the onan engine has a blown rod. I would like to remove the engine from the welder to try to rebuild it but am not sure how to go about removing it from the armature shaft. I believe the crankshaft is tapered but do not know this for sure. I suspect that the shaft will come apart some hard and I don't want to break anything extra. Can you give me some suggestions? Also where is a good place to get parts for the onan engine? From what research I have done so far it looks as if onan does not make these engines anymore.
