Morgan 416 GenSet
 
Recently picked up a 82 Morgan 416, but can't for the life of me locate a manual for the Onan/Westerbeke Genset. Previous owner indicated unit runs, but needs a starting solenoid. There's are a few wires not connected, and so far, I've not been able to locate how to start unit. Can anyone help?

I have an Onan 6Kw of about that vintage. Might have the wiring/owners manual. These units use a glo plug to warm the cylenders and it usually takes about 1-2 minutes. There should be a master on switch and a spring loaded toggle switch for the glo plug. Also mine has an electric fuel pump to prime it from my main tanks. I will say it is a real B***h to get started. I works better as ballast.

A manual would be great...so far I've located 3 momentary switches grouped together near the galley. Perhaps these are for the glow plugs, starter? Wll neede to trace.
