Default My 2 enclosed CCKs.. time to get them going

I thought I had kicked my green disease.. I was feeling so good lately.. then all of a sudden I had the itch.. and tore apart my super clean 1989 tri fuel 5 kw cck.. only to find it has a spun bearing.. only to yank apart another 4.0 cck I had, to find it's also very sticky.. and from the looks of the low, sticky black as night oil probably was *parked* for a reason..

So I lugged out my two cck jewels..

One is 3 phase, tri fuel.. with 168 original hours that I ran briefly 3 or 4 years ago.. then sold the tri fuel carb for.more than I paid for the whole generator.. it sat for the day when I had a single phase 5kw onan gen head available for a swap...which I now have..

The other.. is a 5 kw single phase gasoline only.. well optioned cck.. with full gauges, day tank and even a canister oil filter...that I have never seen on a cck..

But... I pulled it out of a field in Santa Barbara along with a family of mice some years ago.

Plan is to swap gen ends on the 3 phase unit, and maybe after Christmas check its engine out, and start rewiring and cleaning the mouse house one up

More to come.. some onan porn..

Looks like you are having fun . Can any of your neighbors see you or the area where you work on your Onans and whatever you got?

I have a privacy fence.. so when people drive by they kind of can.. but my truck is in the way of the view.. then the fence.. I dont usually work on stuff where I took the pics.. I thought about that with other stuff.. so I drove by at the speed most people drive.. and of your really looking you see stuff but can't make it out..

The neighbor cant.. but she finds the stuff interesting as her late husband was into neat old stuff too..

Why do you ask?

Thanks for the pictures. Now I remember where I saw that small round day tank. The cat doesn't look impressed.

That's a day tank or a filter? looks too big for a filter but too small for a day tank?

Default Re: My 2 enclosed ccks.. time to get them going

I got the 3 phase cck going.. it does have 2 stuck dc brushes.. so I was having to turn it over past compression stroke to get it to crank it over.. even with a big fookin battery..

I'm really torn about pulling it apart and adding my 5 kw 120 240 single phase generator end.. but I dont think I'll ever need that small of a 3 phase generator.. that runs on propane natural gas or gasoline..

Here is a video of it.. and pics of me checking voltage

https://youtu.be/m2ApvmJd7aA

What would you do? Pull it apart and make useful or leave it as is and fix its little issues?

Lets see... A 4Kw 3 phase generator or a 5Kw 120/240 volt generator. Choices... choices... choices...

Put the 5Kw end on it!

I have to agree, the 5.0 would be much more usable and if you ever wanted to, much more desirable to sell.
