  1. Sorry about finding this post late. I am so proud to be a part of a community of men and women that sacrifice so much for this country. I was one of two out of our team that survived and returned home and will always battle with survivers issues as so many Vets do. I just got word that a Ranger friend of mine is being forced into getting help because of suicide threats. No one can understand a Vet like another Vet. I have discovered that we survive so that we can tell the story and help other Vets to get to where they can. To all my Brothers and Sisters, You are not alone and much loved by many.
  2. Happy Birthday Red Square. And many more.

    Thanks. That's what I believe would be the best also.

    I got the starter in and it spins the engine real good. Fired once but that was it. I believe that the condenser is shot. Should I just go ahead and convert it to electronic ignition or keep the points? Thanks

    Not sure what this is.

    Thanks everyone. It's funny how these guys think they are sitting on gold. I was thinking it had been damaged. I had never seen a hood like that but wasn't sure.
  6. Saw this on CL and have no idea what model it is. Has no deck and as you can see,no seat. Says it runs good and wants 300. I am thinking a bit high. Not sure that I have the funds right now anyway. What would be a fair price? Thanks

    I lately go to the mailbox and then stand there wondering what I went there for. Having said that, after reading the post from pfrederi I dug out my clymer book on Briggs engines and did some reading. Discovered all sorts of neat stuff about the engine that I have. After looking at the starter in the diagram, I also noticed that it came with a couple pieces of tin and rivets. These pieces are already on my front cover indicating that this is the correct starter for my engine. Going to order a starter for this engine and get it going. I am also hoping to find the correct pieces that I need to repair the ends of the stator wires. And a big thank you to a member on here for helping me out with a carb. I was able to make a good carb. and it works great. Let you know how this all goes.

    I guess I am going to start looking around for the correct starter then. One question. The two wires coming out from behind the flywheel I can assume go to a stator. If this is the case then I don't need a starter generator, just a starter or are they the same?

    I put a carb on today and got the engine to fire a couple of times. Using a rope to start it is to much for this old man. I am looking around for a starter. I checked the numbers on the engine and they are : 326437 0174 01. There are teeth on the flywheel but the nose of the starter would need to be long. My engine has a piece on the front that you would wrap a rope around and pull it to start it. I notice that many of these engines have a starter generator on them. No place for a belt on mine. I am wondering what I have here. Any ideas sure would be appreciated. I will get some pictures.

    That turned into a really nice tractor. I have spark when turning by hand. Nothing to write home about. Shocks me pretty good when I hold the plug wire so hoping it works. I will report on the carb. When it gets here.

    Took the head off the engine and it is very clean in the cylinder and valves are in excellent condition. Cleaned the points and set the gap but still had no spark. I pulled the flywheel cover and the flywheel was pretty rusty. Cleaned all the rust out but still nothing. I test the magneto and it was bad so I put a new one on. Got spark now and good compression. Soon as I get the carb. I will install it and start it with a rope on the front. Then I will round up a starter. Looking forward to getting it going and mounted on the 416-8.

    I don't have ags so I will need to look into those plus weights. I think that I am going to use my 416-8. It is the one that I am putting the cast iron Briggs in.

    I will do that for sure. Now I am in a hurry for Spring to get here.

    Following this post with excitement and enthusiasm. Going over today to pick up a Brinly plow, if all goes well, that was listed on CL for $35. Never count my chickens until they hatch but have already went to Brinly's site to get the manual. I will use this post to get up and running. Thanks for all the great information. Got back with the plow and it is in great condition.
