Ahhh - so when the motor starts and spins the ring gear it spins the starter and disengages it.

Wonder why it won't move manually into the disengaged position?? Some kind of centrifugal clutch ?? Oh, well. Will have to try it.

Thank you for this info!

Model 5CCK-3P/1C and left the Onan factory 8-8-1957.
So this machine is 60 years old today. I reassembled and reinstalled the starter and spun it over.

Doesn't seem to have a lot of compression - when I spun it by hand I could hear hissing out the intake - sounds like intake valves not sealing tight?

I've been able to pressure wash away lot of dirt and most of the black spray paint is gone too. Now that I can see the machine it looks like someone has put two machines together.



The flywheel and the front cover look like they were blue at one time (and the starter has the blue paint on it too). It looks like someone took the flywheel and front cover with the starter off another machine and put them on this contractors cck which was likely manual start from the factory.



The coil added on the carburetor (seen in other pictures) is connected to the starting switch - so it appears someone put an electric choke mechanism on this to replace the manual choke. The start switch activates the choke as long as the machine is cranking.
