New member ...and another old-Iron guy here...with my 1st Wheel Horse tractor. I was looking for something mainly for pulling an old aluminum boat (18' starcraft) around the property. Capability to mow and haul yard waste would be a bonus. 2 weeks ago, a C85 showed-up on CL for a song. He couldn't start it for me and it didn't take me long to figure out why... This will be a running thread / rolling-restoration as I bring her back to her original, Black-Hood glory! (DISCLAIMER: I'm an engine-wrencher ...I have the tendency to leave my foot off of the project's gas when the engine starts drinking it!)
My tractor wouldn't start. So i jump sarted it with my van. I attached cables jumped on tractor and started right up. I detached cables put c85 in gear and a minute later backfires and quits. Checked oil gear oil gas all good. Battery reads 10.8 voltz. repeated this process 4 times to drive c85 back to my garage. Anyone had this before. Oh and its a new battery last year. I looked for a short or loose connection and didn't find anything???
Having a hard time justifying $300 to rebuild the spindles and replace pulleys on my deck. The deck is a (i believe) 05-36MS01 on my 1982 C85. I found these kits on Pat's and was wondering if anyone had tried to adapt them to a deck like mine? Thanks
