Starter for Simplicity 4040

Recommended Posts

Doogie

I will apologize before hand if this info is already somewhere on the forum. I did a search but did not find anything. I have a Simplicity 4040 that I am finally getting around to working on. When I purchased it, the engine had been removed, the starter solenoid removed and then the engine sat back in and bolted with one bolt. I'm guessing the previous owner was looking for a solenoid???

So my question is, would this solenoid or starter still be available and does anyone happen to have a part number and store where it was purchased at? Ebay shows a few but they don't seem to look the same as what I have. It is the Onan CCKA engine as far as I can tell....

Any info would be greatly appreciated and thanks in advance.

I have a starter off a ccka sitting on the shelf, if I remember right it's the same as the cckb. I could be wrong tho. I know a lot of times the starter is not the problem. On one of my 9020's when I would go to start it would just click, eventually I bought a relay kit from the late Al Eden that took care of the problem I know there was a right up on it some where I'm sure someone else will chime in with some more info, if you are interested in a starter ( I think I have more then one and would part with one) shoot me a pm

I guess I need to go ahead and put this old solenoid back together and actually see what the starter is doing or not doing. I just assumed a past owner of the tractor had a good reason to tear into it like they have done. But you could be right and it might be something else. Ill send you a PM Phillobbezoo.

Phils right check it out first just like mine it ended up being a broken wire. think I read some where that Steve at B&B in Jersey had a line on new ones that would fit. Just my $.02

When you are starting the tractor, toggle the pto switches a couple times before you turn the key. Often the contacts in the safety wiring loop get corroded, including the pto switches. Mine would not start, not even a click when turn the key, toggle the pto switch and it works.

I would agree with isetta. I played this game as well. The contacts in the pto switch were worn. If I flipped it a couple of times back and forth it would disengage and it would start. The other issue I ran into was the little gold breaker, two leads, on the right front of the block. One of the wires wore through and it was shorting against the frame. Changed the wire, moved it further away from the frame and haven't had an issue with that since.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
