520H dead

Recommended Posts

520H is dead. Things I've tested so far. I've jumped a wire from + battery to blue wire on starter. It cranks over good. I cleaned safety switches, starter, ignition connections. I notice if I jiggle or slowly turn key the lighted board will come on. A couple of times the tachometer reset itself.

 the lights will not turn on. Is it possibly the ignition switch?

Could be corroded terminals in the plug that connects to the ignition switch.

I don't think it's the molex plug. I cleaned that pretty decent last winter. I had to bypass 1 of the 9 connectors. I'll try a ignition  switch. It's really corroded. I also did some soldering and heat shrinking to the 3 fuse holder last winter. I'll report

back my findings.

Where can I pick up a 5 prong key switch locally?  Napa?

      I have a 1991 520h and I can mow for hours on end until I turn the tractor off and then restart it. The tractor restarts nice and easy warm but when I engage the PTO (mower deck) it slowly kills the engine. If I disengage the PTO it revs right back up. It is an electric clutch. I was thinking if it was a kill switch wrong I would imagine it would kill it a lot faster than allowing me to cycle on and off the PTO. Any thoughts?

      Hi All,
      Looked on the site (and YouTube) and can't find anything comprehensive about adjusting valves without taking things apart - most are with engine removed I don't want to do.
      Can you adjust the valves with engine on by just taking off the air cleaner unit to expose the valve covers and take the plugs out?
      Can Top Dead Center be found without removing anything else or does the flywheel canopy have to be removed?
      I've adjusted valves on cars, etc and it's easy and straightforward - but I don't want to have to take anything apart that's unneccesary.
      Many thanks!

       Hey y'all I have a 520 H which has some motor movement. Not sure if this is normal or needs to be tightened up. Any ideas?
