Onan Fuel Filter

Saturday morning we’d just finished breakfast and my plan for the day was to veg-out at the local library for the afternoon. Then the generator shut itself down. Diagnosis? Bad fuel pump. Two trips to the auto parts store and all is well. It turns out the the Airtex E8016S although wildly over-built for the task does deliver fuel at the correct pressure which, in the end is all that matters.

About Art

55 years old. By training, ability and experience I am a master toolmaker. My most recent projects include designing and building a process to grind a G rotor pump shaft with four diameters and holding all four diameters within plus or minus 4 microns of nominal. This was an automated process using two centerless grinders refitted to my specifications using automatic load and unload machines plus automatic feedback gauging. I also designed and built an inspection machine to check for the presence and size of a straight knurl on a hinge pin using a vision system for non-contact gauging.
