water in oil onan generator
Hello all, I have a client that hooked up a freshwater hose into the raw water intake, so to flush out his system. The generator is a diesel onan model 5 mdkau. The motor would not start so here is what I tried. Jumped bat to house banks to make sure was not a low bat problem, turned over faster but still no start. Checked oil found milky looking oil, changed oil and filter, filter had lots of water in it. I have searched the web looking for an answer but could not find one. What is my next step, I am leary on using stater fluid or wd-40 the motor is getting fuel, checked at injectors. Do you think it will need to be rebuilt?
