  • Miller Bobcat 225NT

    What engine will replace the onan 16 performer? Mine blew the front out today just behind the flywheel. It's a 1998 model.

    Easiest fix? Another Onan Performer 16. Have you pulled it down to see what happened yet? Good blocks show up on ebay all the time.

      Haven't pulled flywheel yet, but looks like the timing cover. Will know more thursday. I'll have more time to work on it.

        Can you or anyone else tell me the performer 16 shaft dimensions? Such as diameter, lenght and slope.

            buy a new one

            I could not see replacing the engine on that model. Seems like a lot of money on an older welder, gotta bet that engine is 1500 to 2000 new. Onan engines are outragously expensive! Also dont think they are easily replaced with kohlers, i though they ran a unique taper.
            If you could rebuild it thats a different story. If the crank is still good i believe the 16 to 20 hp engine blocks are the same, not 100 percent but beleive they are.

              I agree about the excessive cost, going to see about rebuilding. Also thinking of another possible adapting of another engine with a love-joy coupling.
