    Hey gang,
    I got ahold of a Bobcat T116 with an Onan on it. it runs about ten seconds and then dies, will start right back and repeat the cycle. Some one has made a mess of the wires and tied in a boat trailer plug. (Crazy) I thought perhaps some one may have a wire diagram for this unit. I looks like it has a solid state ignition system, but I am not familar with it. I just know its not wired correct and with out a diagram I am lost. thanks so much for any assitance. rocky.

    I believe these trenches were made by Burkeen. You might try their website or conatct your local Bobcat dealer. They should be able to help.

    sounds like its just using the fuel in the carb bowl. you need to check the needle seat,float adjustment and fuel filter
