Do you know the model # of this generator.

Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am going to assist you with this.

That is an old CCK standby unit. I can not tell you the exact model number, as there were many, many variations of it.

Without the data plate, you are not going to find the actual model number, but if you sat down with a parts manual, and spent several hours comparing what your unit has or doesn't have, you could get very close.

There were actually a couple of different mufflers used on these units. One is no longer available, but one it.

The part number for that muffler is(###) ###-#### The gaskets are part number(###) ###-####

All can be ordered through any Onan dealer.

I've added a little bit of information for you here, for that big, beautiful unit you have.
