616,620,720,4040,9020 Onan Engine Summary

Recommended Posts

As previously discussed, I am trying to put a summary together about how to deal with the Onan CCKA and CCKB engines. The engines sold to AC/Simplicity were speced differently and Onan has not been particularly helpful at providing parts which creates a major problem in trying to keep these tractors running. Stan, Roy, Mark and others have provided some facts which I have tried to summarize here. Please comment on the accuracy of this information;

1. Crankshaft size is 1.437" and does not interchange with any other engine. Any engine swap would require special machining.
2.The front PTO clutch is a major concern, as it bolts directly to the front of the engine block with close tolerances. Since it is electric, volts and amps(front a possible different engine) are of major concern.
3.Base mounting bolts are spaced at a rectangle of 7"x12.25". Crankshaft height is 16.875". Overall engine height is 22.25", width 20.25", engine platform to shroud is 22.25", muffler & exhaust extend forward 10.25" past PTO pulley.
4.The major problems associated with an engine swap are alignment of the front and rear pullys and the mounting/operation of the electric PTO clutch.
5.One of our dealer/members(Mark-- twaite@gateway.net or 248-373-7220) states that a short block is available from Onan.

The major question as I see is: Is it possible for an Onan CCKA or CCKB to be rebuilt using the Onan shortblock?

If not, what kind of engine can be used in it's place?

      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
