I have bee trying to get this K181 74 to 75 B 80 to turn over. I have been using a jumper box used this method before. Cleaned all contacts. I put the 2 wires together on the pedal safety switch nothing. So I am thinking it may be the solenoid? Or the Starter? any thoughts would be appreciated. Every thing seems to be wired up ok by the manual.

My wheel horse buddy called one day and was telling me about his snow plow machine being down. He went out to test run a day before it snowed and it did the same thing. Thinking the battery was old he changed it.........then the solenoid........nothing..........then he called me super frustrated. I ask him about the PTO lever and the phone went silent. I ask are you there? He said I'll call you back. called back and sure enough the lever was in the on position. He felt pretty bad but I told him one got me once but lucky I troubleshot it and caught it before I changed parts. I am sure there is a lot of others in the same boat.

Eric it is not running yet I had to put points and a new coil in it. This one was a little ruff but it is getting better.

:woohoo:            Glad it was that easy and you didn't throw a lot of money away replacing a bunch of good parts.

I bet this has happened to all of us at one time or another. None of us were born knowing anything and the lessons learned by personal experience are the ones we will remember forever.

Man, am I glad this never ever happened to me.

  If it ever does, I will never ever admit it happened.
