    magnum engine swap electrical issues

    The 2 red wires went to the oil switch on mine. I just pulled one wire out and taped it off . The pic shows the engine side of the connector

    magnum engine swap electrical issues

    I'll have to take a look, it's been a couple years... lol Either made a jumper wire, or i might have just pulled that wire from the plug connector. Ill see if I can grab a pic for you later today

    magnum engine swap electrical issues

    I swapped an M12 into a 1980 C-175. I used the whole wiring harness and key switch. I used the light panel to set up the safety switches. Biggest problem I had was with the oil level safety must not work properly (PO had a weird wire from the solenoid to the key plug he was using as a getaround) I ended up bypassing it at the harness connection. You know how to use a voltmeter? I got a lot of help from my light probe too

    Front weights

    Thanks! The first time I used a plow on this machine is when I decided it needed foot control!

    Front weights

    So... I was looking at CL for the next thing I "really need" ... lol and saw an ad for weights. they were Craftsman and listed as fitting 8" 10" 12" wheels. I got to thinking, I have a set of those, maybe they will fit in front. sure enough. A little wide, but we'll see I really wanted to put them on my plow tractor, with this machine, all I have to do is lift the blower slightly to gain traction with the fronts but the plow machine (C-175) has a "loader" front end with heavy duty spindles and bigger wheel bearings and it won't fit

    Sweet! I love driving it around, but at 6'2", it's a little cramped.... lol (and that's not a "slim" 6'2" either...)

    the tiller is packed in the shed... sorry, no pics. I don't know about the wheel. that's just how I got it. they only made that style grill for 2 years with the Copar and Panzer words cast like they are, one year was red, the other blue

    OOO, I can be the first with a Panzer! It's a 1959 T65 and I have the deck, plow, rototiller, and snowthrower attachments :) I do have the original engine (8hp Kohler) but the PO said it smokes so he put a Tecky in it.

    just purchased a 1999 314-8

    I don't think the 6" and 8" wheels are interchangeable. I have 312 spindles and was going to try one on my 417 (think PO may have bent one), but the 417 is a shorter distance to the bend
