  1. Have a voltmeter on the starter and check the voltage as it slows and stops. The problem may be something other than the starter.
  2. It's the voltage regulator, you need to fix that. Probably not the issue you are after, but still needs done.
  3. I would think that the readings done immediately after shutdown would provide the best information. With the engine running the fan is in play. After the engine sits awhile, you are only getting information about which cylinder gets the best flow of air without any forced movement. While the belt guard added holes are a good idea, understand that air is forced thru the fins and flow is only reduced by the sharp turns made external of the engine.
  4. Is the grommet in place around the oil filter? Are the fins clean in the oil filter area? Some oil filter mounts weep a bit of oil and that causes the fins to collect grime.
  5. It would be in excess of $100. That may be a problem with many, but with material and hardware costs, I would make little profit. The puller would be similar to the photo below, but with some added slots and other improvements.
  6. I made a hub puller and it is my intention to produce a number of them to sell. I wish that I could say when they will be produced, but too many other things keep getting in the way. I wanted to have them ready for the show, but that may not happen. Now back to installing the mower deck I welded yesterday (see what I mean?).
  7. I have one of those wrenches, it is made out of peanut butter. Useless for the intended purpose, it hangs on the wall as a collectors item. Buy a wrench at a yard sale and grind to fit.
  8. Hey, the seat is the lipstick on the old mare.
  9. If that is the only serious rust, I would weld in a patch. The decks build up a thick glob of grass right there and need to be cleaned after every use. Isn't that a rear discharge in the photo? Looks like some cheap lawnmower wheels are on it and need to be replaced as well.
  10. I agree, perhaps over-tightened going in. Without seeing the rest of the bolt, it appears to be of lower quality
  11. The OEM tires aren't the best for traction. I have SuperTurf tires now and they are better.
  12. Engine off for trans fluid. Engine takes slightly less than 2 quarts of 30 weight oil in the summer.
  13. Double check that you have the belt routed properly. Do you have the decal showing the proper belt twist? With a new belt, adjust the tension so that the spring is stretched quit a bit, it will relax some as it wears in. I have never had to readjust. If all the spindles and pulleys turn freely, my bet is still the belt. With suppliers looking for reduced costs, the belts may be made in a another country and have lower quality. Once a belt flips, it can be malformed and never work correctly again. In an effort to save money, I have used Vbelts4less with mixed results. One of their new belts flipped immediately, some lost the outer layer and others worked quite well.
  14. The 60" deck uses a mule drive that is spring loaded. As long as there is spring tension it should work. I have found that belts other that genuine Wheel Horse often give problems, and that includes cheap and expensive brands.
  15. He needs the gold badge for an anniversary model.
