Re: Onan generator removal from 270?

Unread postby Dodgy71 on Thu Mar 17, 2016 4:13 pm

For what it is worth, my Onan manual (CCKB series) sates the following for crankcase oil:
"4qts, 30W, Heavy Duty Detergent oil that meets API service designations MS, MS/DG, or MS/DM and should have passed ASTM-G-IV and MIL-L-2104B.
DO NOT USE Service DS oil! "
Note that they say to use a detergent oil.
I haven't yet deciphered all the detergent vs. non-detergent stuff. Many say non-detergent for generators, and other equipment that do not have true oil filters, and others say detergent is fine.
I know that BBB uses non-detergent. Any others want to chime in?
