  1. Rylee’s home!

    Glad to hear Rylee is doing better. I have always felt a meal isn't complete with out a dill pickle (unless I'm just having PBJ.
  2. Wheel horse 1056 won’t idle up

    When a has been sitting around for a few years I begin by removing all old fuel components, fuel line, filter, pump and carburetor. rebuild the carb. and clean the pump internals, replace the filter and lines. Use only ethanol free gas https://www.pure-gas.org/extensions/map.jsp?statecode=WV and add some Seafoam gas additive for good measure. Next install a new spark plug and clean the points (pull a dollar bill through the contacts a few times). Doing these things first will generally solve the problem. Let us know how you do.
  3. Mower Deck Compatibility

    Dave is right on with the deck size, I have used a 42" rear discharge for years and love it. The list below will show you what decks etc. are compatible to your
  4. Missouri Mule-GT14

    An electric fuel pump cured this condition on mine.
  5. Looks like Dave took good care of you. Anything else please feel free to ask.
  6. Gas

    Don't know what part of WV you are from but you shouldn't have any problem finding a station near you. Here is a map with non-ethanol gas stations on it. https://www.pure-gas.org/extensions/map.jsp?statecode=WV
  7. clutch spring

    I think you will find that most of us remove the strut in favor of a spring. Use your own judgement here. I have used a tool like this for years, works great and saves your knuckles. Any good automotive or motorcycle shop should have them. You can also find them on Ebay.
  8. New jugs for a kt17

    I doubt that you will find new cylinder jugs for a K Twin unless they are on the shelf of a defunct dealership somewhere. The best source of information I know of is Brian Miller's site. http://gardentractorpullingtips.com/a1miller.htm
  9. Wheel Horse Trailer

    These dump trailers were made from the mid '60s to the mid '70s and are very popular.
  10. May I quote you on that?
  11. 312-8 wiring problems

    A down and dirty check would be to start the engine, turn the key off and then run a small jumper from a good ground (perhaps the Battery "-" terminal) to the switch body. If it stops the engine then the switch is not presently grounded.
  12. 312-8 wiring problems

    Is your ignition switch body grounded?
  13. The show was at our county fair grounds, just 15 minutes from the house.
  14. C160H Crank no start

    The points may need to be cleaned up a little. Even new out of the box they can have a bit of corrosion that prevents them from making a good ground. Check to see if you have 12 volts at the "+" terminal of the ignition coil with the key ON. If you don't have 12 volts there then use a small jumper wire to make that happen. Once you have the 12 volts at the coil then go on to the spark plug check. If there is no spark you can unhook the condenser lead from the coil "-" terminal and see if there is spark. Do these things and get back to us.
