20 HP Onan Igniton Problem

Recommended Posts

Guest
I own a A/C 620, early 70's. For the lift of me I can't seem to get the firing right. This Onam is a CCKB engine. (1) Any idias what I'm doing wrong? (2) Is there an electronic ignition system for this engine? (3) Has anyone change a CCKB over to electronic egition? Thanks, Mitch

Hi Mitch, There has been a ton of posts on ign problems in the last few weeks. Use the search function to review them on Kohler and Onans for general knowledge. Good Luck bobjack

Mitch, There is no electronic ignition kit for the CCKB's. When installing the points the timing and point gap has to be right on the button. Floydster

I finally found out why mine wouldn't fire. Inside the breaker box, one end of the flat strap connecting to the wire of the condenser was (almost invisibly) touching the back of the box and grounding out. Because it is so awkward to see and work in that box, I missed it. Good luck.
