The 4.0BF does not use a separate starter motor. It is exciter cranked, which means it uses the generator section to crank the engine.

If you can't find the manuals Max sent you, we can resend them, but first check your spam folder.

I have a 4.0 BR 3CR/16000B 1763498331 Onan and that has been removed from an RV. When I hook up the battery, the fuel pump starts working even though the start button has not been pushed. Why?

Probably the wrong start solenoid. Happens all the time to people . You need a solenoid specific to your your unit.

Recheck the model number. It's probably a 4.0BF or 4.0BFA. As Max said above, if you post a valid model and serial number as well as an email address, we can send you the service and parts manuals.

We need to know where to send the manual, post or PM one of us an e-mail address & you will receive the manuals.

Onan Parts, who is a sponsor here has many parts for the older Onans. Sears Parts Direct or Cummins is the next choice. Sears ships directly from Cummins.

Hello -
I know I'm just new, hoping to fix that (I'll likely be posting a hihowareya shortly!)

Could you please send me the lit as well? I'm asking for a buddy - I believe he has the user & parts manual, but I wouldn't swear to it, and I /know/ he hasn't got the service manual. So, please send everything. My email address may be found through the board (I don't get a lot of SPAM on the address I use yet, and I'd really like to keep it that way. At least, until it becomes permissible to deal with SPAM generators using medium-to-large quantities of high explosive. I miss blowing things up for a living...)

Thank you!

JDK
