C-125 Won't Fire

Recommended Posts

Before it broke it got cross-threaded so we bought a helicoil kit and did that, and it worked fine. Now we found that when we sprayed the fuel starter it seemed to seep out of the helicoil type bush that attaches onto the spark plug.

Did you use high temp RTV as mentioned in the helicoil instructions? I do not know if you can remove a helicoil and put in a new one.  may need to consider a new head.

 

Guess loctite at this point won't hurt.  Does fuel spur out of the pump out put while you crank?

Fuel spurs out of the pump. I started it and it went for a good minute but I had to balance the choke constantly and it was just throwing white smoke out everywhere, you could barely see anything. Also there was some type of liquid running out of the exhaust and carb which I pretty sure was fuel.

      Hi folks Brewster Rob here, was gifted a Cub Cadet LTX 1040 in great shape other then a completely blown 19HP in-famous Kohler Courage SV590, today I acquired a 17HP Pro OHV CV490S in perfect running condition.... so I want to swap the engines. They have identical vertical shafts question is the electrical. The Courage had four wires coming from the engine red/green/white/purple, the Pro has 3 white, 1blk and 1 red.  I also have the alternator and regulator from the blown Courage.... might I be able to swap alternators???  I of course have the old Courage key switch I do NOT have the new engine key switch.........  Need help from the Red Square wizards and PLEASE think about the best result way to go here.... thank you in advance.

      Bought this 310-8 for $100 came with a plow but no engine. Just want to put in the cheap HF $99 Predator 6.5hp. Searched on here and found that people have done this but I cant really find any information on what they needed to do to get it to work. Looks like about a 2" engine plate since the height of the PTOs are different and the mounting bolt locations are different. Besides that, any more tips or pointers?
       
      Just making this into a cheap plow tractor, I saw the linkage below the 310-8 is not like below my 312-8. It does not have a chain lift and just a straight bar. I mounted the blade to my 312-8 and it worked fine. Guessing the bar is so I can push down on the blade if need be? Is this something included in the plow package I missed before? Any insight there?
