C125 Click not starting -see video

Recommended Posts

Clicking on starting. C-125 with 12hp Kohler.  I purchased a new cheapo starter on eBay about six months ago. I swapped that out with the old starter in to test whether it would at least spin and it did not. What do you think it is and what should I check next? See video

The engine on a C-125 sits on a steel plate and the plate sits on rubber isolation mounts on the tractor frame. There is a ground cable between the plate and the frame. Have you checked it?

With any electrical problem the first step is to have the battery load tested and clean and tighten all electrical connections including grounds.

Wheel Horses have a built in safety that won't allow it to start if someone is near it with bare feet! :angry-soapbox:

Try jumping it across the solenoid and see what you get.

Thanks all! It ended up being a frayed ground wire on the frame plate.Simple fix.
