Onan MDKD Parts Manual

Can anyone point me to a pdf or online version of this manual? Have tried quite a bit of googling but not finding this particular model. Full model i have is 6.5 MDKDP26501C Its a 230v 50hz unit circa 1990. Any help appreciated.

Good luck on that one... it's a state secret.

In the case of good news/bad news: Any Onan dealer can look it a part number up for you. That might not help, since it is officially an "obsolete" model. Parts are either totally unavailable, or insanely expensive. Like $2000 for an exhaust elbow...

Wow really? I thought the MDKD was a fairly common model and I see parts manuals online for lots of other similar onan models just not this particular one.

Re: Onan MDKD Parts Manual

Ted, FWIW, we have that same genset on our 1989 T-43. And I do have a parts manual, ops manual, etc. on board. If nothing else, we can arrange to get to Nanny Key when we get to the BVI in a month or so(we usually take a taxi up to hit Budget Marine anyway), and I can bring it with so you can copy it. As far as parts availability....I've only run into a couple of instances where Cummins/Onan did not have the part. They are spendy, but are available. There is a dealer in Road Town who has a pretty good parts department....although I bought a fuel pump from him a couple of years ago-the box was marked correctly, but the part inside was definitely NOT the fuel pump I needed. Also, we've found a lot of parts numbers have been changed from the parts book....you need to find a source that will get the correct part no for you. And I've used some non-OEM parts as well (I just installed a new heat exchanger), ....they come a lot cheaper!

My boat had a Onan 8.0MDKD-3CR/LA that I sold eight years ago to a diesel mechanic. When I was considering overhauling it I was told that the engine was manufactured by Kubota, so parts may be available there.

I sold the manual three years ago on craigslist. Sorry.

Good Luck.

Re: Onan MDKD Parts Manual

Found one from local Onan Delaer her Golden Hind Chandlery. Also found all of the parts I needed and wasnt any more expensive than Yanmar parts.

Re: Onan MDKD Parts Manual

Glad you got what you needed. After operating ours 2x per day every day, we've had a few "experiences" with our genset. any time you want to compare notes....just give a shout. We're in the area, and will be in the BVI later in the season....just give a shout.
