CCKA/CCKB THOUGHTS

RECENTLY I ACQUIRED A SIMP 4040H AND AM QUITE HAPPY DESPITE ALL THE PROBLEM TALK. I DID DISCOVER A FUEL PUMP LEAK AND THE TIGHTENING WIHT A SCREW DRIVER WORKED FOR A WHILE. MY MECHANIC SON LOOKED AT IT AND SAID IT LOOKS LIKE THE OLD, FORD ACCELERATOR PUMP, IS THAT POSSIBLE ??? IN THE MEAN TIME I FOUND AN ONAN DEALER AND HE HAD THE FUEL PUMP REBUILD KIT IN THREE DAYS AND SAID PARTS FOR THESE ENGINES WERE NO PROBLEM. WHEN I PICKED UP THE REBUILD KIT I ASKED FOR AN OIL FILTER AND THEY HAD IT IN STOCK. $9 I THOUGHT WAS A LITTLE STEEP, SO WILL LOOK FOR AN AFTERMARKET MODEL NOW THAT I KNOW WHAT IT WAS. BUT THE DEALER DOES DO MAIL ORDER STUFF SO SOME OF YOU MAY WANT TO CONTACT HIM FOR PARTS ( NO PROMISES ON MY PART ) JUST HIS ASSURANCES THEY WERE AVAILABLE AND WERE USED ON A LOT OF GENERATORS THAT ONAN BUILDS. THE DEALER IS POWER HOUDE MARINE, ( HANS TANKE ) 608 - 784 - 9580 , 518 LOGAN ST. LA CROSSE, WI 54603 -- GOOD LUCK GUYS

Right, John, the parts are still available from Onan, but that $9 filter translates into a $2000 short block. That's what everyone's concerned about.
And there is one other factor in this that no one has brought up yet, and I have been remiss in mentioning. That is that even if it proves practical to replace the CCKs with something else, whatever is now available will not have the kind of "grunt", the torque curve, of a CCK.
Even a Kohler Command 25, with more HP, will not 'pull' the same. The only engines I can think of which might fit and have similar 'pull' would be the old iron Kohler twins, like a K-582. These are 'going out' too, and are not a realistic solution.
We're still working on it.

THANKS FRED , LETS KEEP TRYING . JOHN S. p.s. NOW THAT I GOT MY SIMP 4040 I FOUND A 616 ON A DEALERS LOT WITH A CAB , MOWER , SNO BLOWER AND A SWEEPER BROOM AT A DECENT PRICE AND AM TRYING TO REPRESS THE URGE TO OWN TWO OF THESE, I MIGHT EVEN HELP SOMEBODY ACQUIRE IT FOR SOME KIND OF A DEAL UNTIL THEN THE LOCATION IS A SECRET.

NAPA has a motor oil filter for the CCKB engine. Their number is 1764. I don't remember what the price was on it, but I would think that it's a small price to pay when you consider what a new block or major engine work costs.

Enjoy that tractor, it's a handy machine!

Use Fram PH 3600 for oil filter,Fram PH16 for trans,and Baldwin PA2347 for air. The Fram filters are rlatively inexpensive,the Baldwin air filter is around 15-16 dollars.As far as I know they are the only one who still makes it.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul
