Bruce, Would like to know if it is a air cooled or water cooled, carb model or diesel, even a picture would be great, having been a Onan dealer for 40+ yrs, I have an interest depending on what it is. A model number and serieal number would be good too.
Thanks

Never heard of a cummins with a carburator.  I don't think I ever heard of an air cooled cummins either.  Probably a water cooled diesel about 40hp.  If you want an air cooled diesel look for a Deutz.

Probably a 3.9 Cummins it was a 4 banger but would be overkill for a 15kw generator one would think

That is great info, it is a Cummins A series now, was the Onan DL engine,  no longer produced, but a tuff little unit, 
Now that Cummins owns Onan, yes they have the J series, 1, 2, & 4 cylinder, water cooled & air cooled, gasous or diesel fueled.  No longer produced, Cummins felt that if they did not engineer it, it was junk, so they dropped the model, many thousands still runing great. Cummins also killed the DL after they made it the A model
Thought a little info for the ones that know everything.
After 40+ years playing these toys, I still laugh a lot.

Ok Dave the one A&A Diesel has for sale here has the model 15Dl3J has a Perkins BTW he is asking 2000 for it he also has Kolher with the same engine they came from the Santa FE in Needles so did they come with a option of different engines are not ?  

 I forgot Cummins never made the L423 that was Onan's nightmare and you are 100% right when you posted Cummins thought they were junk, label they did manufacture they didn't

Congrats on your new to you power plant  :)!  I don't know where you call home but while your are here if your picking it up in person be Shore to sample some of our Shore good cooking ;D and of course at least one Scrapple and egg sandwich for breakfast. Bruce will treat you right!.. Being from the "Eastern Shore" You can count on Bruce being a Shore good person ...................... It's just a Shore thing...

 You can even ask Low Tide who bought the MCI from Capt Tom (old man sax) a while back. they even had some of our Shorely famous Crab  Cakes and even left with some that were intended for Mr Clifford. I dont know if they made the trip or got hijacked ;) any way just a little Shore humor   oh and by the way if your a base ball fan and here  around the 4th of april  It Shore would be a shame to miss opening day for our local class A Baltimore Orioles team the Shorebirds................

 Sometimes a little silliness Shore  goes a long way it brightening  someone's day

Your shore humor shore did brighten my night, LongJohn. Thank you. I was well treated by all, and hope to return to spend some time in that area enjoying the food and shore.
Fore shore.
