Crankcase pressure on Onan

Recommended Posts

I have a ccka Onan that ran fine until today. Yesterday I noticed the governor shaft seeping oil. Now I have oil getting in the points box. Oil level on dipstick is fine. I cleaned breather out about a month ago when trying to fix another problem. Any ideas?

An ONAN CCKA doesn't have the same side cover crankcase vent as do the single cyl. engines. It has a separate PCV valve on top of the engine block beside the carb. At any rate the fix is the same. Pull the tube off the PCV valve that goes to the filter and see if it is exhausting a flow of crankcase gas. If it's not or seems low then remove and clean it. It may be that the PCV valve is full of oil or some other contaminate that is restricting the amount of flow it can handle. The rings may be failing producing more blow-by but I've seen these engines with terrible blow-by and the PCV valve handle this flow. The tube going to the air filter may be collapsed restricting the flow also.

I'm confused, but here's what I found. The points leak was actually the gasket under the points box. Made a new one and all fixed. Not sure why the gov. shaft stopped leaking but it did. I did have to readjust the points, and now it runs like a champ(for now). I keep thinking I will get to a point where I won't have to keep tweeking this motor, and I think I'm close. I am spoiled with all the Briggs singles I have owned over the years. Also, I took it out to plow some brush and am blown away with how much it will push with just turf tires, amazing machine. My 7119 with ags and weight wouldn't come close.

      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
