Default Look what China is doing now

The carb on my rebuilt Onan runs too rich so I was looking for a rebuild kit and stumbled on this.

or buy it now

Has anyone tried one yet? I think I will order one and see how it works.



Look at the cost of a rebuild kit.

I’m going to try one. Thanks for the link. Only decent carb I could find was off a generator my buddy junked. It was a 16hp. I’ve thought about drilling the jet cause it always seemed lean on my 48. This sounds easier

I was in a workshop with some Chinese colleagues and we were touring one of our corporate laboratories in France. The host was describing a 3D digitizer (put an object on a platform, and the machine makes a precision mechanical drawing of it).

The Chinese director mentioned that while the machine we were looking at was nice, they had the latest model in their labs in China.

French/American/Spanish colleagues all rolled their eyes and all independently thought "of course you do".

If they are anything like the cheap carbs for the Kohler engines, it should work just fine.

I won that sucker for $85.99. I wonder how long it will take to get from wuhu,anhui, China to Georgia?

I'll let you all know if it is a POS or a option for cheap a$$es like me.

Oak, little late to the party here. There is more than one Carb for the Onan's in 982's. I think the Nikei (or however you spell it) is the most poplar. Mine has the less common, think it is a Walbro LU series. I don't remember where I got the kit, but it may have been V.E. Peterson. I know it wasn't too expensive. Just passing along info someone may find helpful in the future.

Be sure to post how well the Chinese reverse thievery, I mean engineering works. Probably the same plant that makes the aftermarkets for the Magnums.

You sure about that John?? CCC only shows one option.....

More than one carb available for that engine..... but I think only one put in that tractor. If you can supply some info, I'll retract.


Todd, I didn't go "goose hunting" but could you really not find a kit for that carb cheaper? That's a bit ridiculous.

John, here was the original carb. Probably what you have.

But this was what I found when I pulled it apart. Where is the other float at?

I pulled a Nikki carb off of another B48G engine, soaked it good and tried my best at cleaning it. I was told that you should really pull the welch plugs but the kit I got didn't have them. Where is a good source for them or do they need to be OEM?

Where did you find your kit John?

When I install this China special I'm going to pull the old one apart and dig into it a little deeper.

Jon, typical Onan parts gouging. I have not found another source yet but I'll continue looking.

Well, yeah. I've bought Onan parts before. They are expensive for sure!

Try Case. They used Onan's in some of the smaller uniloaders. 1816 and 1818 uniloaders used them. 16 and 18 hp respectively. The 1816 used a BG43M. I don't know what the 1818 used, but I thought it was the B48(?). Anyway... another place to check.

Our luck, they buy the $107 kit from Onan and mark it up.



You're missing a float bulb......

Gonna take a little digging to find info guys. Here is where I posted in 2014 about having a different carb. No I know that doesn't prove Cadet used different ones. I may be wrong about that. Next time I will look at the parts book, we have the original IH paper parts book--sometimes I don't trust the modern updates.
Anyway, here is where I said I have a different carb. Don't hold me to it but I think it was a LUA6 Walbro, or something like that. Go to post #8

http://www.onlycubcadets.net/forum/s...ad.php?t=30045

Try these guys for hard to find carb parts, you will have to call them
http://vepetersen.com/

In the meantime I'll keep digging and see what I can come up with regarding carb options.

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
