  1. Hello I was wondering if you could make sprockets. I need some for a ST-6201 single stage snow blower.

    9 pin connectors????

    Sorry, but the 9 amp rating with 16ga. wire will not handle the load in the red wire and possibly a few others in the original harness.

    NLA Parts Made to Order.

    Not sure you can open link, your cylinder may be non-repairable. Not sure why the weld cannot be cut and rewelded. Is the hydraulic rod 1/2"?

    No, it is worse than that, see this link.

    6100 carb 20hp Onan

    The ball should be under the spring. It left the factory with the spring and the ball, and will not work correctly without them. There is no need for the spring without the ball. Also, most likely the accelerator pump diaphram is rotten with holes in it. I have this carb on my Wheel Horse. After replacing my diapham, check valve, o ring, and ball and spring, cleaning all passages, mine works perfect. You are dreaming if you think you can leave parts out and not spend money and it will run properly. However, it will run. Best of luck.

    6100 carb 20hp Onan

    Look in this link for the Onan 6100 accerator repair kit. There are 5 parts inside the o ring image. On of those 5 parts is the spring, and another is the ball. Why would there be a spring with nothing to push on? There is a very hard to find exploded view of the Nikki 6100 emissions carb somewhere online that shows the ball and spring installation. This carb will not function properly without all the parts. https://www.onanparts.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=263

    Suburban Electric Start

    Looking for a Wheel Horse Suburban electrict start project. Please, not looking for manual start or already restored. I am retired and need something to keep me busy. Also, will consider incomplete or wrong engine unit. Would also like deck, or just electric start engine. It will keep me busy searching for parts. Thanks.

    Where is the accerator pump spring and ball that is used on the emmision carb? Did it fly out when you removed the top? I do not see it in your picture. It will run rich without it.

    312-8 for 60 Suburan

    I have very low hour, (170 +/- showing) 1997 312-8 that runs great. Come with a 1997 42” SD deck that has only about 40 hrs. on it. Would like to trade for a 1960 WH Suburban electric start restoration project of equal value. PM me. Thanks.

    1960 Suburban

    I guess this was not an electric start model? Thanks.

    520H 9 Pin

    Hello everybody. Anyone got the link to the thread that somebody posted on here that has pictures of the 520 9 pin connector with all the original wires, their colors and location? Thanks in advance.
  15. You need to run from that deal. 7 acres is to much for these old tractors. Hell, I got 3 good runners, which one do you want? Get a bushhog.
