Default 1988 6.5 KW MCCK Onan Generator

I would appreciate it if someone would post a link to a trouble shooting or diagnostics guide for my marine generator. Last year, it was hunting and when I got that under control, it would stop as soon as I let go of the start button. I checked out all of the safety cutouts and now it just won't start. In the spring time, I will check out the fuel pump, but I want to be armed and ready with more ammo to get this baby purring again. That might also be a good time to upgrade to electronic ignition and get rid of the points. A kick in the right direction for parts and tips would be greatly appreciated as well.

Merry Christmas ~ Ken

If you post the full model and serial number, along with an email address that can accept large attachments, I'm sure someone will send you the manuals.

Thank you to Dale, Steve & Max for sending me their parts manual pdf files. Other than any vague help in the parts manuals, is there an actual diagnostics manual out there specific to my genny that would cover off any issues concerning the generator or gasoline engine?

Hi Ken,

If you look near the top of the Onan forum here, for a sticky thread about
Onan PDF Manual links, you should find what you need.

Specifically, the MCCK Operator's manual, the MCCK engine service manual,
and the generator end wiring and controls should be included in the
UN Generators and controls manual.

These are all direct download pdf's from Onan's web server, saves us having
to upload them to you. (For as long as they are available. At least 2! people
may have backup copies if Onan pulls them down)

Steve
