Question Re: How to: Convert ONAN CCK & MCCK 6.5KW to OEM Electronic Ignition

Does any one know the year Onan went to electronic ingnition, since we can't get the kit maybe we can buy dead late model Gen sets and change out EI Mod to older units, Also will the elec ignition from a 6.5 work in a 5.0

Or another Idea, I had is can we use a EI from a later model 2 cyl engine, on on older CCK,s , I have very limited knowledge and less understanding about the electrical part of an motor but I don't see why this wouldn't solve the problem of discontinued parts.

If it has the same style points set it will. I am not sure what the 4.0 cck looks like. I have only worked on my 6.5K MCCK and my 3.0 MAJB

Post your questions in the regular area not in the sticky it wont get confusing that way. In a short answer to both your questions yes both can have electonic ignition or a Pertronics kit.

From that point on I am confused. You don't show the plunger installed under the ignition. I have a CCKA and the plunger is too tall to fit, also there is a lip on the plunger holder.
