Recommended Posts

I am going to attach the deck on this model, but am looking for a photo or manual to see how the deck attaches.  Can anyone help?

Thank you,

Kate

NOW I have another question.  Apparently the key switch burnt up on this unit.  I wonder how I can find the part number for that key switch so I can order another?

I think the Raiders had two different ignitions over the years...do you know exactly what year yours is?

It is serial 570451, model 1-6241 and I looked that up and it shows that it is a 1969 Wheel Horse Raider

Engine, K301-S 471447C

Kohler K301S-47147c uses breakerless magneto ignition and there was a change to the ignition switch way back. Should be a 4-position key switch part number 8362. This is a heavy duty switch that does not use a starter solenoid and likely only available from Toro. There may be a cheaper 3-position magneto ignition switch if you add a solenoid to carry the starter load.

 

Here are 2 service bulletins on the switch you can download

And be careful not to use the wrong switch or cross wires as you can easily burn up the coil and/or the "trigger switch" which are hard to find and exspensive.

Can not find an original wiring diagram for the 1969 Raider 12 model 1-6241 but the 1970 model 1-6252 uses the same K301S-47147c engine so have to assume the tractor wiring is the same. That operator manual we do have and the wiring diagram is in it.

Does anyone have a PDF of the manual for the 1-6241. I have two of these beauties and would like to have the manual for the 1969 raider 12.
