  1. What have you done on your WH today?

    Wow that is clean. I picked one up for my father in-law. It is used and abused.
  2. What have you done on your WH today?

    For rusty bolts and parts I have been using Evaporust. I buy it at tractor supply.
  3. What have you done on your WH today?

    That's been my world lately while working on these tractors. Always something.... I'm getting quite the spare parts and tool collection.
  4. What have you done on your WH today?

    Started painting rims for the Work Horse. Original rim color was grey but we are going with a different color combo.
  5. What have you done on your WH today?

    I have seen that done before. I normally use large c-clamps to break the bead but these were rusted on. If they didn't come off with the hammer and chisel I was going to sawall them. That works but I just didn't want to slip with the blade and mark the rim.

    Removed tires the hard way...
  7. 8" front rim for Work Horse

  8. GT-1100 ignition switch help

    The coil is mounted right above the flywheel? I'm not sure what this tractor is supposed to have. It had an electrical meltdown before I got it and the guy wasn't to handy...... being nice here. Lol

    The electronic shop had exactly what I needed. I have everything I can wire wired but the diagram shows a third wire coming off the stator? I took the flywheel off again and took the stator off. I don't see any broken wires. The diagram is saying I need S start b battery r regulator m magnito g ground a accessory I have all but that magnito. Is it needed?

  12. GT-1100 ignition switch help

    Ok perfect. Thank you!! Yes I have an electronic shop close by. I'll swing in there tomorrow. This tractor is fighting every step of the way!

    I unbolted the engine cleaned one spot and put a ground to the chassis. Thanks for the tip. But now I have another problem. That diode broke. It must have been brittle in the electrical meltdown. Does anyone know what it is and where I can get one? The engine turns over so that's a plus. lol
  14. GT-1100 ignition switch help

    Ok thanks. I wil give is a try tomorrow evening. Hopefully it runs. oh 2 more questions with the wiring. One wire goes to the bottom of the throttle plate from the magnito. What does that do? Just a ground? Also this engine doesn't have a ground wire to the chassis. Should it be?
  15. GT-1100 ignition switch help

    Thanks guys for the replies. I looked at the schematics and noticed "red" on the top leading from the magnito/spark plug. Any idea what that is? Also my tractor didn't have a rectifier. Is it supposed to have one? I would have included model number and serial number by that tag is completely sun faded. So what I connected to that ignition switch is: coil wire to the S post magnito to M volt meter to B ( fuse from solenoid to volt meter out to ign. Switch) ground to G This tractor was a wiring mess plus had an electrical melt down. Oh oh another thing I found was a small diode of some sort coming off one of the wires along the frame from the magnito. Thanks again for the input. Oh that makes it very clear. Thanks. I don't have a regulator....not that I have found anyway.
