    Default MEP-002A Oil Drain Valve source

    Any thoughts, fine SS folks? Just got a set in, and its got a long term leak in the one thats there.

    Edit: I will hit the manuals when I get out of work, for those naysayers . Just trying to get a jump on it.

    For those who might need this later, Onan 504-0069 is your ticket. Currently up on the big auction site for $8.46 plus freight.

    If memory serves me right, just about every gen set (5 kW and up) since time began, uses the same valve. Kinda handy!

    That is good to know. The newer valves with T handle on the 80x series are nicer than the older valves.

    The Onan 504-0069 has 3/4" fittings on it.

    The 802 & 803 manuals call out a Parker V500P-8-04 valve which has 1/2" fittings.

    Thanks for the clarification! And a followup, the big auction site seller took a $5 offer on the part, plus freight.
