Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Onan generator

Several years ago I bought a spare Actuator, Governor fir the Onan because I believe the only way to check if you have a problem is to replace it. If you were here, well you know!.
Also, when we were at Sounion, Greece (the tip of the peninsula from Athens, anchored below Poseidon's temple) I took a bus toward Athens and got off of the bus about 300 meters from an Onan dealer. BTW, I used my handheld GPS to know when to get off the bus. I did not have a Greek SIM in my iPhone.
The part number for my MDKAV is 151-0779-01 Actuator, Governor
Here is all of the information you will need:

I hope this helps you.
We noticed the problem when the engine note dipped significantly when more load was added and the exhaust spewed out black globs of half burnt fuel.
However, when the mechanic ( a good one, though not an Onan man ) pulled the speed control off the engine he could find nothing wrong. On reassembly, the Genset worked perfectly for another 10 hours or so but has now gone wrong again.
