    What have you done to your Wheel Horse today?

    Got a good amount of work done on the GT2500 today. Started out changing out the points ignition for magnetron. Chipped the flywheel around where the puller bolt threads in, luckily I had the flywheel from the other 2500 to use. I'm still deciding whether I should use the chipped one or not. Engine runs beautiful now. Next up was the shifter boot. All new now. Next, the clutch interlock switch. I got the actuator for that last week along with some switch connectors. Bolted up the actuator, wired the switch and all is good. Also got a new crankcase cover for the other engine. Waiting on a gasket set and plug so I can get that together again.

    Briggs & Stratton 11hp counterweight shaft question

    That's what I'm thinking of doing.

    Briggs & Stratton 11hp counterweight shaft question

    Yes, I have those, but there isn't much, if any, info about the counterweight shafts there.
  4. Is the shaft for the counterweights on the 11hp Briggs L head a slip fit into the crankcase cover or is it supposed to be an actual part of the cover itself? Trying to figure out I need to buy a whole new cover or not.

    Briggs & Stratton 11hp on a GT2500 issue

    Do I need to buy a whole new crankcase cover or does that shaft just press back into it?

    @bcgold Huh? I just see my video reposted.

    Briggs & Stratton 11hp on a GT2500 issue

    Got the engine on the bench and split apart. The issue was in the crankcase cover. Part names escape me at the moment, but there was a shaft that fell out into the sump when I split it. It looks like the hole it went into lost a bushing or something and jammed the gear up. Take a look at the pics. EDIT: The hole in the counterweight retainer got worn and the shaft mustve moved just enough to cock the counterweight gear and lock it up.

    Probably could do that, but I did it the way Bob shows in his instructions.

    More puttering with the GT2500 today. Figured out that the mystery wires at the back of the tractor are for the seat switch and clutch interlock switch. Pulled the clutch switch out and checked it, still works. Scuffed the rust off of it and blasted it with electrical contact cleaner. Going to rewire it. I need a connector for it and also the actuator that attaches to the clutch idler arm. Gonna get that from A-Z. I reinstalled the brake band with the new lining and adjusted that up. The brake pedal doesn't return too easily when I take my foot off it. Thinking maybe a new spring will help that, already kroiled the rotation points a bit. Need to pick up some wheels for the grinder to strip the paint and rust off the fender pan so I can get that repainted.

    Decided to rewire the clutch interlock switch. Pulled the switch out to check it, and it does. Scuffed some of the rust off and flushed with contact cleaner. Good to go.
  11. Following. This is awesome!

    I think the other two might be the clutch interlock switch, now that I've studied the schematic more. EDIT: They are. I can see that switch is disconnected up inside.

    They look black further back. Gonna say those are seat switch then.

    Seat switch on schematic shows two black wires. Maybe the green ones are black further back.

    Just realized I put this in the wrong section. @gwest_ca could you move this to electrical for me please. Sorry and thanks.
