    Hello All, quick question, because I forgot the part on my work bench. What size diameter is the pin that hold the front axle my 12hp 1973 Auto. The part designation on the manual is 5-02 but does not give the diameter on the pin, (6216). Thanks!!!
  8. Uh-Oh. No compression backfires

    Ed. That's what I was thinking, clean that up and get a new head gasket.
  9. Uh-Oh. No compression backfires

    thank all for the replies. Now get this, before I left for work this morning I decided to try to start it just for fun.......guess what started right up. Didn't run it long because I had to get going but it ran just as before!!!!! Now I don't know what to think??? Any thoughts on this?????
  10. Uh-Oh. No compression backfires

    953 thanks I'll look for that, hope all that it is. If it's not what else may be the cause. Just trying to get all my ducks in a row. Right now I have chunk of carbon and broken flywheel key. Any other ideas????
  11. Uh-Oh. No compression backfires

    Ok that will be my job this Saturday. If it is moving the piston, how big of a job is it to fix the key to the flywheel. Thanks.
  12. Uh-Oh. No compression backfires

    Well i've got trouble. Just got in from plowing. Got off my tractor to move my truck, got back on the horse reving pretty high and I see small blue flames coming out of exhaust and then dies. Tried to start but backfires. I can turn the flywheel by hand. So I got no compression. I think the old horse might be done. 12 hp Koehler. Is she done or do I have a chance.
  13. Need bolt pattern

    Sarge: Yup, running into the same issue. Just trying to make this work until spring. Then I will re-do the bracket I have now with a 1/4" or 3/16" U-Plate that fits inside the frame. But I may not have enough room using the 1/4" for the bolt heads to fit in. If there is I may not have the room for a socket or box head wrench.
  14. Need bolt pattern

    THANK YOU!!!
  15. Need bolt pattern

    Basic question (don't have my manual in front of me) I'm drawing up a new bracket and need the bolt size that bolts into the tranny. Im thinking 7/16???
