  1. 414-8 Won't turn off

    Had the same problem on the same tractor a couple of weeks back. The ground post on the ignition switch had a bad connection. A dab of solder fixed it. It's the single post on the switch, not one of the 5 posts in the connector.
  2. What have you done on your WH today?

    Dell, maybe sometime after Christmas, you can get those matching rear tires on there!
  3. It's a Kohler. My guess is the 6 3/4 hp. K141. Usually found on the 633 round hoods.

  6. What have you done on your WH today?

    Several years ago, a good friend of mine called and said his 8hp Kohler wouldn't start. He had run the battery down, recharged it and ran it down again. Asked if I would I come look at it. Got there and he was cussing and fussing, swearing off Wheel Horses etc. First thing I did was look in the fuel tank. Not a drop. Not even vapors. We still laugh about that day.
  7. How much knock before cam breaks? Kohler 8HP

    That statement is correct. Connecting rod bolt tangs MUST be flattened just to give clearance.
  8. Paint carburator or no paint?

    Upon disassembly of the carb, removing all gaskets and seals, I use brake cleaner to not only clean, but remove all paint from the outside. Works great and does a good job of removing all paint.
  9. Kohler KT17 one cylinder

    Gonna have to file this in my "must remember" brain. Great idea. And comparatively inexpensive too. Thanks.
  10. unleaded gas

    The "lobby equation"... $=power.
  11. unleaded gas

    I have read that most major car manufacturers will not honor the current warranties if 15% ethanol is used in their vehicles. That sends a powerful message to consumers regarding the negative properties of ethanol.
  12. unleaded gas

    30 days is about the "shelf life" of ethanol gas. It's all down hill after that unless you treat it with Sta-Bil or Seafoam.
  13. Changing Mower Blades

    I have one of those Michelin jacks. I don't trust it at all. Piece of junk!
  14. Wheel Horse external combustion C120 (1 of ?)

    No internal parts should have been harmed in a fire. Maybe some new gaskets and fire that K up.
  15. What have you done on your WH today?

    With 6 acres you play with, you should have a "plow day"!
