Onan VS kohler which engine is better?

Onan no longer makes engines. But with the older ones it is hard to say. Both had very good engines. Some better than others. I would say Kohler had the better single cylinder engine after Onan stopped making the LK. Onan had better RV generator engines. On the larger units they were both the same in quality and support.

What is the Fram cross reference for Briggs Stratton 492932 oil filter?

My research has shown it to be a Fram PH8170, but IMHO you'd be much better off going with a NAPA (Wix) filter, FIL 1056. i also just used a fram PH3614 in place of a 492932 since it was the filter i used on my kohler engine. the stp3614 would also work, if still available. these filters are about 1 inch longer, but if you have enough space they will work fine.

What is the compression of a 3hp Briggs and Stratton engine?

Briggs and Stratton does not release specific compression values. Anything above 120 psi should be just fine, around 90-100 and you're most likely due for a rebuild. A better test is a leakdown test, with can help in determining where compression is being lost.

Is kohler courage better than Briggs els?

They are very similar engines. Someone that has had an issue with a B&S in the past will tell you to get the Kohler. Someone that has had issues with a Kohler in the past will tell you to get the B&S. On paper, it looks like the B&S offers a tad more torque, so that's an added bonus. I'd go with the B&S personally. When I think of Kohler, I think of toilets and shower heads. When I think of B&S, I think of small engines. However at least the 21Hp that is used on the husqvarna has a serious problem with the carb....has a solenoid on the bottom of the fuel bowl that gets hot and boils the fuel when you turn it off. Causes clogged jets.
