My 416-8 tractor I have repowered with a small engine warehouse Briggs and Stratton 23hp vanguard engine two years ago. This week the tractor ran fine and I cut most of the grass until it rained out. I thought I would finish the lawn the next day but I will not run correctly. The tractor will crank but will not start. I have replaced the spark plugs and fuel filter already to no avail. I removed the spark plug and used starting fluid in the cylinder but It did not help any. When cranking the engine is the clear fuel filter housing supposed to fill up most of the way? It seems to be only filled about 1/4 of the way. I found a bad terminal in the engine to chassis 9 pin molex connector for the starter which I bypassed until I get a terminal remover tool. I bought a new molex connector body and terminals for this type of repair a few years ago. Another weird thing is when it did start and run in the past the switch is turned to start I have to turn on the head light switch for it crank over. Once it started I would turn off the head light switch to disengage the starter. The switch and head light trick has been working for two years. I am presuming I put the wrong terminal in the wrong spot in the 9 way connector 2 years ago but I worked fine other wise for two years. Is there any other trouble spots I need to test on the tractor?
I have a fluke dvom for testing purposes if needed.
Thank you in advance.
Selling my 1995 Wheel Horse 416H. This spring I replaced the front wheel bearings and replaced the wire harness. Previous owner had it "butchered" and it wouldn't charge and the key didn't work. Everything is back to stock now with working key ignition and charging system, all new 9-pin main harness. Changed oil last fall and haven't mowed with it this year, thus the sale.
The onan motor runs awesome, I have a 520 that smokes and this one does not, runs smooth. The hour meter quit working last summer and says 615 hours, might be 625 on there now. The one bad on this mower is the seat, well it's from 1995 and is cracked up.
complete running tractor with 42 inch mower deck and 42 inch snow plow. 17 h.p., hydrostat trans, headlamps, 1 qt. of red paint.

1990 - 416 H 627 Hours. Ugly but runs well. Strong Hydro. Many new parts. Engine will most likely need governor work. Trade includes extra filters, seal for motion control shaft and metal flyball spacer for governor. Trades for good running Briggs or Kohler Twins considered. Engines must be complete with PTO clutch and mounting plate. I have $500 in this tractor, other trades and offers of equal value considered. Thanks for looking. Bill
