Default Onan 6.00 JB 3CE/2236AA Schematic Needed

I was given the above diesel generator. The controller is disconnected. The Starter is missing as are the Oil input parts. My cousin said it was running when it was removed from a tugboat. I would appreciate any advice from those of you who have worked on these kinds of gen sets. Thank you, in advance!

Any chance of some pictures of where or what the oil input parts that are missing? Do you mean the filler tube with dipstick???


After seeing Max's post is this a 50 HZ unit?

I have all your missing parts if you need them, except a starter

Very good generators. Bit loud but hard to kill..

Your build sheet (such as it is) and diagram should be attached.

Have you tried to just see if the engine will turn over by hand for the heck of it?

I need the oil parts. I also need the fuel filter parts. There may be some sheet metal needs also. Do you know the specs on the starter?
Thanks!

Yes. I did that just before dark. My project will be held up by my sons' problems with his flooded house. Harvey gave his house 8" of water (no ins). His asthma prevents him from working on the house. His wife's work place turned out in numbers to remove the sheetrock and all the flooded material. I'll be returning to help.

I have the dipstick, tube and the filter housings.

What tins do you need?

The starter is a prestolite and not easy to find and usually $$.. I know a few members that may part with one.. I'll leave it to them to chime in

Yes, you made sure it turned over by hand? The reason I asked is because the oil filler being off and looking rusty, makes me suspicious of water being in the oil.

Turned it with a screwdriver. It sat for several years in my cousin's shop.

Curiosity bit me at this late hour. So, I went out and looked inside the motor. The metal is bright and the inside of the block is a painted yellow. It was a motivating observation that you made. Thank you!

I am not sure about the needed tins. I think the one with the start/stop switch is missing. The tube as a part of the intake is missing. TKS!

The panel on the control box that has all the relays and wires in it is missing?

I have a control box, but have nothing with relays. I need to find some pictures to see the layout. Tks!

I looked at a utube video and then looked at the unit I have. The control section is missing. I do have the section that controls output. It looks ok, but will need a test run. I think my first objective will be on the motor, getting the starter and oil input section. Right now resources are southbound to get my son's house through the recovery stage.

Here is a bigger picture of the unit. What is the cost for the control switch relay unit? The oil filler? The sheet metal cover over the cylinder area? Tks!

You are correct. The control box is missing. Do you have one?
