Lots of info on the net: http://www.tractordata.com/lawn-tractor ... -4040.html

Onan is one of the best built engines in history. They run forever, but parts are EXPENSIVE and tough to find if they do break ...

Second Smitty....

ONAN is a fantastic engine. Had one in a Cub Cadet 982, plenty of power to do whatever you'd like.

But again PRICEY parts. Good luck with the tractor!
