  1. I was in Granville this past weekend and visited the cabelas. Similar story. So packed we made a lap around the main aisle and out we went. Only thing I got was a sales flyer lol. I am fortunate to live less than an hour from the Bass pro shop in portage In. And there is a cabelas about 10 miles down the road from that. They've been open long enough that the lines aren't so crazy. I will say that Bass pros prices are typically better. That and my wife Loves to eat a Bass Pros restaurant so it's a good excuse to get me in the store!!!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Sockets - 6 vs 12 Point

    I prefer the 6 points and I love my crescent set. They carry a lifetime warranty as well. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. C-121 tow valve problem

    I've got a c141 with the same issue. One of these days I'm going to pull the fender pan off and get it broke loose. My dad owned it from new and I took it over a couple years ago so I know it's never been opened. Could be a bear. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Eaton vs Sundstrand

    From what I have read on here the Eaton 1100 is the strongest of the hydrostatics. The Sundstrand is also good but are hard to find parts for if you have problems. The Eaton 700 is not built as heavy is thought to be the weaker of the hydrostats. My C-141 has the sundstrand and I have never had any problems at all. I can pull the front tires off the ground.

  5. This product works!

    My wife has a little ford focus she drives to college and the hospital(she's a nursing student). It started missing and stalling out. Wasn't showing a code so we really couldn't figure what was going on. My neighbors brother is a tec for GM and he suggested we use Seafoam. Twist was he suggested we pour it straight into the air intake with the motor running. So we revved the engine up to 2000 rpm and started slowly pouring it in. You would not believe the crap that came out the exhaust. It's ran like a top ever since. Cheapest fix I've ever had on a car but it made me a believer Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. It just won't start!

    Deleted my post 'cause you found the cure, agreed with this though! Was my thought as well considering I had just replaced the starter in April it wasn't even on my radar. My neighbor actually suggested it and so we started checking Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. It just won't start!

    Well. I got my new starter in this past wednesday. It's in and tractor is running great! I must say that the service at DB electric was incredible. I emailed them on a Saturday not expecting to here from them until Monday. They emailed me back within about 30 min. Between my work schedule and the very limited schedule of my (very)small town post office I was not able to ship the bad starter out until last Saturday. I guess the question now is how well will this starter perform long term. I guess it doesn't really matter how good your customer service is if your product is crap. So far I'm impressed but only time will tell Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  9. It just won't start!

    Heard back from the supplier (twice) within about an hour of emailing them. They sent me a number to call tomorrow to set up the return shipping of my bad starter and getting a new one shipped out. They said that all of there parts carry a one year warranty. Hopefully this all works out as well as it looks like its going to. I will keep you posted. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. It just won't start!

    Bingo. Found the problem. Pulled off the starter(that I bought in April brand new) pulled it apart and sure enough chunks of magnet. I've got an email into the place I bought it from on amazon now. We will see what there response is. I saw in one of the reviews for them that someone else had had a similar problem and they sent them a replacement. Thanks for all the input and I will keep you all posted Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. It just won't start!

    So i am starting to think the points may have been knocked out of time some how. Being that we are in a heatwave today (20deg.) I went out to work on getting the old horse fired up today. It did seem to turn over better but what I noticed is it would turn a few times, kick back and blow exhaust out the air intake. The plug is fouled as well. I won't have time to work on it until this weekend but I think that may be my starting point. Anyone with any input on this (am I on the right track or not) let me know. I am far from an expert on this stuff. Thanks
  12. It just won't start!

    I had the battery hooked up to the charger and even tried to jump it with my truck. If I run the throttle up when trying to start it it will turn a couple times and then stop. Almost like the starter just doesn't have the torque to turn it (possibly with the throttle open its letting more air into the cylinder to compress). I'm running 10w 30 so that shouldn't be an issue. I did replace the ground cable from the block to the frame. I didn't have as heavy a gauge wire as I would have liked to have had but thought it was heavy enough. It was heavy enough 2 weeks ago. Could it possibly be the solenoid? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. It just won't start!

    So I finally have snow. Replaced the governor gear a few weeks ago and had it running great and now it won't start! If I have the throttle and the choke up it won't hardly turn over. It's almost like the compression release isn't working. In the last year I have replaced the battery and the starter and the engine is a fresh rebuild (less than a year and a half ago). The starter is getting hot just from trying to start it up. Any help would be appreciated. Model. C-141 Koehler k321 14hp. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Engine reving high (Help needed)

    Well I drained the oil and pulled the pan Friday night. As suspected the governor gear was trashed. Picked one up sat. Afternoon and yesterday we tore the engine down, put in the new gear, reassembled and dropped it back in the tractor. She's running like a top again. With the snowblower installed. Now if we can just get some snow!!! Thanks for all the input guys! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Engine reving high (Help needed)

    Well I've been gone for awhile (life's been getting in the way). I am planning on tearing down the engine this weekend to see what's going on with the governor. If the plate has come loose is there a way to reattach it or do I need to replace it? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
