onan cckb external alternator option

Recommended Posts

hi - did some research into the external alternator option on cckb engines and found out alot - downloaded the full cckb manual covering all versions of the cckb off a link from this site and found more info about it - there are a number of external alternator option available for those with bad magnets or those wishing to get rid of the stator and regulator - i found out some older railcars used cckb motors and none of them used an internal system - all had external alternators stock - more info is available thru les king motor cars ( www.leskingmotorcars.com/kingengine.html) - if you research railcars you can find pictures of cckb motors with external alternators mounted - he has available a alternator for sale that will work and can link you to people with the mounting bracket info and such so i am told talking to a railcar guy i e-mailed - just thought this might help some people and give others different options for repairing cckb motors - good luck

Jason, My understanding from the Onan manual is that the external alternator runs off the flywheel ring gear and is mounted opposite the starter. I really question whether there would be room on a 620/720 or Simplicity Powermax between the oilpan and the frame for this alternator. Have you seen one of these?

      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!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
