Starter bendix does not return

Hi. Bendix starters have a spiral on the end of the starter motor and when the starter spins it shots the gear if the gear does not move freely then it may be dry/worn out. Lubricate with something like wd40 to free off then engine oil to lubricate it. Then allow the oil to run clear of drive and wipe clean before refitting as you do not want to spray oil on to a clutch area. Good luck.

Gas in oil,onan generator

It is not okay to run with gas in the oil ! I assume you mean the lubricating oil? If you are getting gas there you need to perform a leakdown test on the cylinder to make sure the rings are not shot, and also the intake valve seal. A compression test will not reveal this.

Frequent top up and low oil pressure guage.

if the oil need frequent topping up it can only dissapear in 2 ways a leak or the engine is very worn and is burning it.
a worn engine is also a cause for oil presssure dropping once the engine has warmed up probably worn main and big end bearings on the crankshaft as you will know oil is thicker when cold so oil pressure is increased
