    A Manco 285 I restored. The dang thing is fast as heck. Haven't clocked it yet but just blasted down my street at at least 40. I stabbed the throttle in my back yard and the back end came around when powering out of a turn. Not a $5000 UTV but for $400 total I am totally pleased with the ride and my sons are diggin it.

    That diagram should help you, but I think that you have the wrong ignition switch. Should be a 103990. You should have power to the solenoid coil in the start position only. You should have power to the ignition coil in the start and run positions. Back of switch should look like this:

    You may want to add the parachute Dan. The brakes need help on these dragsters.

    Ah Ha. Now I see said the blind man. Probably done with a 90 degree gearbox. Just kind of thinking "out loud" The saw blade can swivel to both horz and vert positions by the gears

    Oh no! Get well! I have a close relative who did a very similar thing a couple years ago. ... It was "less than amusing " Glad to hear you're heading the right way though.

    Check to see if yours has an M at a terminal. .... Mine did. Some folks put in later switches, not taking the time to find the correct one.

    Now this is awesome! I love the shot of the lady on her machine. Gotta admire her spunk. You'll never regret this deed. Kindness, pass it on!

    The Charger 12 came in several configurations. Some had a Magneto and some had an ignition coil powered from the battery. Each had it's own switch. This manual shows a lot of options. Tractor 1972 Bronco 14 Charger 10 Charger 12 Automatics OM Wiring #A-5299.pdf

    It will probably be next summer before I start it. I haven't said anything, but I broke both bones in my leg at the ankle in July. I've just started to walk again without crutches. Spent a while in a wheelchair, then crutches, then a walking boot. I'm a member of the titanium club now. I might be pain free enough by summer to start something. I was just able to put my snow blade on the 520H yesterday, though I paid for it today. I have been really sore today. I'll also have to convince my wife I can cut down trees again, since I was trimming one on a ladder when this happened. Slipped coming down the ladder, was falling backward and was afraid I would end up paralyzed, so I jumped about 6 feet down. Unfortunately, I hit wrong. Still better than my back or neck. My dad worked in sawmills all his life, and they used circular saws, but I don't know if they moved the log around. I'll have to ask my brother, he worked in one for a while too. I stacked lumber for a day and said never again. Hardest work I ever did as a kid, and I did farm work all my life until I left home.

    Some owners seem to have no respect for proper wiring, Probably best to start from scratch, attached is a basic wiring diagram you can use as a guide. The safety switches are not in this drawing but are very important and should be included.

    I have two 1977 B-100's, and had a 1976 B-100. All three had exactly the same wiring. The wiring diagram below was shared by all three. However, in 1976, there were 4 variations in the B-100; 61-10K801, 802, 803, and 804. Wiring could have been slightly different in one or the other. Let us know which model you have.

    Well I finally was able to get one of the tractors to my house and opted for the 656 since it was complete. I started digging into a little. The old owner thought the motor blew but wasn't sure. Pulled the plug and rolled the motor by hand and nothing no compression. Pulled the head and the piston stayed at the top of the block. I hopefully we get it the rest of the way pulled and access the damage and order a rebuild kit for this and get it going. I also noticed that when you lift the seat pan it has two compartments one for thebshifter and another behind that. There was a large weight in the back area and I am curious if this was a stock form of weight addition or someone had a bright idea and stuffed the weight in there.

    The truck is only half the equation - you should see the room stuffed with parts . Especially noteworthy are the correct rear van doors in excellent , rust free condition , a spare set of great front doors and a slew of other parts for it - many of which are NLA and some of it is really rare straight from Japan . To this date , the Land Cruiser is still one of the toughest vehicles ever built - they didn't wear out , they just wore out their owners and that's not a joke . There is nothing on it that cannot be rebuilt and it is all detailed in the service manuals . I mean , even stuff like the vacuum brake booster , fan clutch , steering box (highly detailed in the book) and water pump just as an example . They built them to be field serviced and survive in 3rd world countries for a lifetime - it's nothing to drag out the oldest examples and put a day's work in changing fluids - then fire it up and drive it . 9.5" ring gear size in the diffs and 31 spline axles - stock . The axles are heavier than the Dana 44's easily and weigh more as well . Built more like a commercial truck (complete with a double c-channel frame) than anything - and actually tougher for it's size . My dream was always a 45/47 long wheel base Troop Carrier , or Troopy . Collectors have driven prices to insane levels - it's nothing to see them auction off at over $100,000 for great restored examples . We have a guy in France now that can build full tubs out of aluminum , brass or even stainless steel - his work is amazing and he ships world wide . Mine was around $6500 in 1977 new - first year for front disk brakes and the rear axle uses dual wheel cylinders on each side like a commercial truck . Seating was designed for 4-6 passengers and weighs around 4,200lbs - engine is 850lbs alone being an industrial straight six - one look inside of it and you'd think it was a diesel . Despite it's age and pulling those 33x10.5x15 mud terrain tires it can still run 80mph - although it's not exactly happy at that speed and will induce a lot of white-knuckle feeling to the driver , I used to drive it to work a lot on the Interstate and 70mph sure woke you up fast early in the morning . Aside from the manual steering it drives exceptionally well for what it is and built like a tank - anyone opening a car door into it is going to need a new door and really irritate their body guy....while barely even scratching the paint on The AntiChrist , as I call it ... Spent a short time last night looking over the 854 some more and even rode it off the trailer down the ramp . Steering is amazingly tight , as well as the spindles and associated parts - almost like it has very little hours on it or someone really loved and cared for it . Trying to get some history on the thing as I'm curious as to why so much of it's parts are like new . Hood bolts/nuts are gone as well as the shift knob and it will need a new key switch - which I have here . Engine has great compression and the belts even look good . Someone put a strip of leather inside the brake band and the throttle cable stand off bracket is gone with some plumber's strapping taking it's place . Steering wheel is even in great condition yet and the dash bushing is pretty tight yet . Fuel tank is clean as a whistle inside and the fuel cap is in nice shape - even the gasket is great condition . It was last sitting in a machine shed but prior to that it had to have been stored inside and greased regularly for the condition of it's parts . Shifter boot was missing as usual but I already put a new one on it . Wish the weather was better - I'd like to at least go through a few things and put a fire in it to see the engine's condition but it will have to wait until spring . Sarge

    I had some help this morning so we got most of the tractor taken apart, I had pretty good luck taking the hubs, hitch and pulley off of the tranny. All of them came off without much trouble at all. The tranny input pulley is bad but the shaft is good and I have another pulley, next I want to open the tranny and check it out then start making a list of parts I'll need and get those ordered. So far I'm surprised at how good of shape this tractor is in.
