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.

      I'm thinking about buying a Leak down tester. Looking online they range from $29 to $200+.  Harbor freight sells a Pittsburg brand one for $39. And several other companies sell that same looking one (Different names) for $29 to$49:  There is an OTC brand one for $&9 and $199.
       
      So what do y'all use?  
      Does anyone have the Harbor Freight one?  I'm a little skeptical l, but like the price for the little bit I will use it.   Of course if it's not accurate it a worthless .

      Good morning,
      This is my first post.  Several years ago I bought a c120 auto and have used it to mow and snowplow with great success.  The other night in the midst of a snow storm I was in a hurry to get going, and didn't check the oil and didn't give the engine enough time to warm up.  Result seems to be a broken connecting rod, since it cranks now much faster than it did before and won't start when it was a terrific starter before.
      So I'm looking for ways to repair the damage I've done.  I really love the tractor, comparing it to modern ones that feel like tin foil convinces me that I want to fix this iron horse.
      I am in southwest Michigan, and looking for help.
      thanks in advance.

      I also have the original mowing deck for this mower.  I am looking for a WH pull behind tiller attachment, maybe trade?
