  1. Reverse Starter direction

    I bought a new battery, installed it and the everything is fine.... starter now turning the correct direction. The 1975 c-100 has been brought back to life. Regards c
  2. C-100 Can' activate the starter

    Thanks for your help. I got the C-100 running yesterday. Just a stupid thing on my part. Had the wrong battery terminal on the wrong side of the solenoid. Then worked not he no spark problem. Pulled the fly wheel. Stator contacts were totally coated with rust. Polished them up, re-assembled and off she roared. New breath for another life. Regards c
  3. I put a new starter on my C-100. It is spinning the wrong direction and will not throw out the bendix to the fly wheel. Can I reverse the direction of the starter somehow?
  4. I am trying to get my 1975 C-100 going and I cannot get the starter to roll over with the key. I put a new starter on last year. I can jump the starter off the Positive on the solenoid and it turns. When I turn the key ,,,,,,, nothing. When I jump the solenoid from the positive to the front terminal I get a click and the starter turns over. I have bypassed the Clutch safety switch and spliced that connection and I believe my father-in-law did the same with the PTO. I bought a new ignition key switch for $13 thinking that could be the problem........... not. Can someone give me a little guidance on next steps I might do to track down the problem. Also I have no spark at the plug but I want to get things turning over with the key before I work on the spark. Any help is greatly appreciated. Regards c
  5. 516H No Spark

    Good Morning All Last week I posted new to the forum and got great response on my C-100,,,,,, now running. I also have a 516H,,,,,, or my father-in-law does. At the end of last year it quit and he tried to fix with no success. This weekend I re-assembled what he had apart. The engine turns over but after tinkering a bit can see that it has no spark. I would appreciate it someone might give me a list of test/checks that I might do to help pin point the problem, similar to what people did for my C-100 post. I don't have a problem following an individuals lead but I do not have the knowledge or understanding of these systems to develop a diagnostic process. As before,,,,,,,,,, thanks in advance for any guidance. Regards c
  6. Solenoid C-100

    All Thanks for your help. This Weekend got the C-100 running. Replaced the starter and the battery had a very slow drain and insufficient Voltage to crank........runs like a champ. Now the next problem my 516H. I will post a new thread for that one. Regards c
  7. Solenoid C-100

    Garry You say power to the small terminal on the Solenoid is necessary. This is the small terminal on the front? And I believe this runs to the safety switches? Clutch and PTO? Correct. No power there would indicate that there is a disruption on this line? Thanks for the help. Regards c Garry You say power to the small terminal on the Solenoid is necessary.

  8. Solenoid C-100

    Garry thanks for the help and the manual especially. I did not have this and it is more comprehensive than what I have. Regards c
  9. Solenoid C-100

    I pulled our old 1975 C-100 out this past weekend and it would not start. No click at the solenoid and I directly put a jump from the + on the battery to the starter and nothing. Since this is all original I have decided to simply replace Starter and Solenoid. There appear to be numerous alternatives for the starter, but I can't find even a parts number for the solenoid let alone a replacement. Can someone help me out here. I have the Kohler K241S parts manual and they do not even list the Solenoid. Appreciate any help. Regards c
