BeOk first off I have a older 80 400 series . Was my father's and I am attached to the old lady.. it Was running ok..
This year after a year outside it just will not start. I am Not a mechanic so working blind.
I have the seat switch bypassed, also the PTO saftey switch. Replaced a lot of little parts,.Don't know if there is something else . so.. history aside.. cranks no start.. using a test light.love my test light.. fixed a lot on some older engines with this.. anyway. Test light not meter. I get power to the points. Power. To the + end of the coil.. a flashing on the neg side of the coil when cranking.. I do get power after cranking on the neg end of the coil.. the two posts not where the spark plugs wires come out.. I do see A white spark seen and heard at the points when cranking and if I pull the points apart when not cranking .. using test light or inline spark plugs test nothing. have not done the pull plug and ground to see.. but using test light I put in on the cable no light.. no light on the coil tower either.. I replaced the coil, condensor and points like 8 years ago I think.. it was hard to start and I was using the manual..
So no spark if power to the coil but nothing out equals bad coil right?? Well the local shops quote for 280 for a coil was a shock. . but looked online hard to find but a little less..
Cannot rember what I spent before..
So worth buying a coil and if so may as well replace points and condensor at same time?? Am I missing something?? Got power going into this and nothing out as I can see.. but heck what to I know..
Wheelhorse 416-8 with electrtic dump bucket and snowblower. Machine is in great shape!!! Motor was rebuilt at 900 hours and runs perfect. The machine has served me well and will be a great addition to someone who needs a true garden tractor with plenty of power. The snowblower is amazing for clearing driveways. It clears a 42 inch wide path down to pavement. Awesome machine. If your looking to save your back from lifting and moving wheelbarrows around filled with mulch and other lawn and garden items you will be very pleased to have the bucket!! With all the snow we have gotten over the past few years the addition of the front mounted snowblower is a must!! This is not a cheap lawn mower! its basically a small farm tractor and was used as such. I purchased this machine without a deck for mowing so do not ask for a deck. They are easy to find on ebay and craigslist if you want one but this machine is better suited as a tractor not a mower! It will also come with the rear wheel weights pictured, an extra rear tire, a pair of tire chains and a small rear mounted wooden bucket to add wait. This machine has served me well my only reason for parting ways with it is the larger machine I have recently inherited so i need the space.
She throws it pretty far! I'm trying to decide what I like more. Pushing or throwing. Throwing is cleaner for sure, pushing seems faster. I need to re assess with a foot or more of snow. I really like this setup, the only thing I don't like is the heavy steering. Seems like I'm going to break the steering gearbox! https://goo.gl/photos/FZW5sqHG8Uru1ja76
Question is, Is the rear fender also mounted on springs or rubber somehow? I know the seat has springs but the whole rear fender assembly on mine wiggles as if its sprung also. I haven't had the time to tear into it to look further and figured someone here would know!
