  1. Tractor won't start

    Well I tried the bypass and it still won't start, I'm going out tomorrow and going to try and get a new key ignition
  2. Tractor won't start

    I went out and checked the foot pedal safety switch and it was bypassed already there aren't even any wires running to that one anymore so I know that one isn't the problem
  3. Tractor won't start

    My 1973 wheel horse 10 automatic won't start, it's something that has got to do with the electrical system I went and bought a new husky 420cc battery from my local tractor supply so I have plenty of power to crank the engine over I tested the solenoid by connecting it to a battery and it did click and I have started the mower by connecting battery directly to the solenoid and I did run but when I remove my screwdriver from the solenoid leads the engine will just stall out? and I also bought a brand new starter for it and cleaned all the wires and ground for good contact I took my 5 terminal ignition switch out and had it checked and they said it was good but I'm still thinking that is the issue it's not the original switch it is out of an old polaris colt snowmobile do idk if that matters or not, I have not seen any fuses on this unit either so unless they are hidden somewhere that I can't see them I don't think there are any on this mower and the only safety switch on this is on the manual pto lever at least that is what I think though lol, about a week ago I was plowing my driveway and I parked it for the night got out the next day and turned the engine over and the battery was to low to get it to do anything other than get the solenoid to click and have the starter make some noise attempting to turn over the engine so that's when I went and bought the battery and hooked it on and got nothing and that's where I'm at for the moment if anyone has any thoughts on what could be wrong any help would be appreciated thanks.

  6. engne not starting

    i went to start my mower yesterday and it seems that there is something wrong all that happens when I turn the ignition key is that it will make a tic sound and that's it I don't know if it's the starter or a bad solenoid or if it's just a bad ignition coil so if anyone has any ideas on what it might be please comment thanks
  7. 10 automatic

    can someone please tell me what year my mower is? I as thinking it as from the early 70's but the person who I bought it from say he thinks it was more closer to the late 60's so I just need to know so I can find a few attachments for it
  8. mower deck pulley

    ok I'll send you the bad pulley it might be fixable a buddy of mine tried welding some shims on the inside of the pulley to meet up with the shape of the shaft so it needs to be drilled out before anything can be done to it

  10. mower deck pulley

    send me your address and ill send it out to you no there was nothing wrong with the shaft, I meant I was going to put the shims inside the pulley because the keyway in it was completely rounded thanks

  13. mower deck pulley

    I thought of trying that the other day but mine was to far gone, my plan was to shim both sides of the hole where the shaft goes in the pulley then cutting about a quarter inch off the shims then centering them leaving about an eighth inch on both sides then weld thought that would be the best way to fix the issue but when I went to start on that I noticed the hole on the back of my pulley was more oval shaped and I would never get it balanced anywhere near good so I just started looking for a replacement part
