  1. Correct wire gauge for k241

    It's a K241S- -electric start with a 15 amp alternator. There's a solenoid. I'll start replacing old wires with 14 gauge and see what happens. For what it's worth, the tractor made a buzz buzz buzz sound when I turned the key before it quit. A buddy of mine was not able to get it to turn over using jumper cable from the POS terminal to the solenoid. He thinks it's the stator, but I'm going to try the simple solutions first. It's annoying. 7 inches of fresh powder last night and I can't run my wh-powered snowblower!
  2. Correct wire gauge for k241

    I have a Raider 10 with a K241 engine that won't turn over. It's totally dead. Headlights won't even turn on. I've got a brand new battery and new battery terminal wires, but the small wiring is old and this might be the problem: a disconnection somewhere. So I'm gonna rewire some parts with new wire. Does anyone know the correct wire gauge to buy? I can't find it listed in the manual.
  3. Mounting Instructions

    That's exactly what I'm looking for. Thanks!
  4. Mounting Instructions

    Thanks--I've seen this file. It describes how to put the blade on the frame, but I'm looking for instructions for mounting it onto the tractor. Does such a manual exist?
  5. Mounting Instructions

    Does anyone know where I can find mounting instructions for my dozer blade? It's on an A-frame mount, model 6-4113 7. I have a Raider 10 tractor.
  6. Troubleshooting: Dead Raider 10

    Fixed!!!! An ammeter wire was disconnected from the solenoid, so I bought a $.44 wire terminal and reconnected. Running fine now. Thank you everyone, I learned a lot about my tractor IMG_2927.m4v
  7. Troubleshooting: Dead Raider 10

    Confirmed--It's a 15Amp charging system (diagram attached). Now I just need to go find out where the black wire is supposed to go: solenoid or switch. There's isn't a terminal hanging off it. It looks like it pulled away from a junction that was used to repair it at one point.
  8. Troubleshooting: Dead Raider 10

    It's a K241S engine...I think the S signifies an electric start engine. There are wiring diagram photos in the service manual, but I don't know if I have a 25 Amp or a 30Amp battery charging system. Diagrams are different. How can I tell? NOTE: I'm a super novice with this stuff. No background in engine repair whatsoever. This is my "learning" tractor.
  9. Troubleshooting: Dead Raider 10

    The black wire is disconnected at the other end.
  10. Troubleshooting: Dead Raider 10

    So here's a picture of the back of the ammeter. I found that the black wire is disconnected. But I'm not sure where it's supposed to go. Anyone know?
  11. Troubleshooting: Dead Raider 10

    Update: I replaced the battery, battery cables, spark plug, fuse, and still nothing. I put the key in and turn it and it doesn't even turn over, not a sound! Recall that this tractor died in the middle of a job. Just stopped running. I'm interested in investigating a disconnected ammeter as Prondzy described, though I have no idea what the ammeter looks like.
  12. Troubleshooting: Dead Raider 10

    Thanks all, I'll give that a shot and report back!
  13. Troubleshooting: Dead Raider 10

    The engine is a Kohler. Model number I'm not quite sure. It appears to be rubbed off on the plate. Will try the jumper cable trick that was suggested a few comments back. Anyone know where I can find a step-by-step on how to replace battery cables? never done it before.
  14. Troubleshooting: Dead Raider 10

    I need a little help troubleshooting. I have a Raider 10 that just up and died in the middle of a tilling job. It now sits in the middle of my field with a tarp over it :-(. I initially started it yesterday after it sat all summer. It wouldn't turn over at first, so I charged the battery for 4 hours and afterwards it started without a problem. It ran for about 10 minutes until running out of gas (whoops). I filled the tank, started it again, and worked it out in the pasture with the tiller attachment for about 45 minutes. Then it died. The engine just shut off. I turned the key and got nothing, not even a click or an attempt to turn over. I assumed this was a dead battery, so I went to home depot and bought a new one. I installed it just like the old one (see photo). I cleaned the terminal cables with steel wool. Still nothing. Totally dead. Any ideas as to what to do/what happened?
  15. This works for me...all parts at hdwe store...or in your w/h parts drawers.....
