    Hi All,

    New to the forum, new to RVing, old hat at fixing/rebuilding things.

    Plan to post our starting off story soon. (1989 32' Georgie Boy Custum Cruiser)

    I have a 1989 Onan model 6.5NHEFA26100E genset.

    It was burning a bit of oil so I tore it down, honed the glaze off the cylinders and replaced the rings.

    Now I need torque specs for the piston rods and the heads. As usual it is after 5:00 and no one is open to call (and tomorrow is Sunday).

    Hope someone can help.

    Thanks in advance,

    Mike and Carla :)

    Got my answers by searching several different forums.
    Not sure which one I found it on, but here is what I got.

    Connecting Rod 12-14 ft lbs
    Head Bolts 16-18 ft lbs
    Oil Base 18-23
    Rear Bearing 15-27 ft lbs
    Gear Cover 8-10 ft lbs
    Starter 19-21 ft lbs

    Hope these will help others, too.

    Engine/generator is back together. Fired right up and purrs like a kitten.
    Now all I need to do is get the mixture set correctly.

    Mike and Carla :)
