Here are some examples :
Oder 4 generators
-----------------
28158165
81128632
174277820
209524210
330003580
498215416
Order 5 generator
-----------------
12496
Order 28 generator
------------------
14316
Of course, any element of a cycle being also a generator of the same cycle, I
have written only one of them...
With best regards !

: Thankx so much! :)
: It looks like there are no tripletts. Is there any proof of that? Can
: anybody suggest some book about the entire topic?
There is a book "Perfect Amicable and Sociable Numbers" (or
something like that) by Song Yan, but if you have access to a library
you will probably do better to look up the papers referenced in either
UPINT, or
http://www.astro.virginia.edu/~eww6n/math/SociableNumbers.html
or
http://xraysgi.ims.uconn.edu:8080/amicable.html
(Achim Flammenkamp may have some stuff on his web page, but I forget where that is)
