Here's a crazy question I had to ask anyway. I have an old HH 60 that has no spark. Obviously something with the magneto. There is no way to recharge these correct? I have cleaned all connections and still no spark any helpful suggestions lmk
We're going to take apart the Tecumseh from my Honey's 657 so I can replace the crankshaft.
Any little tricks or tips I need to know about?
Still needs some finishing... It's alive!!
As stated in another section my honey went and bought herself a 657 a few days ago. Sunday afternoon to be exact.
Runs and drives quite well and had a very serious and non negotiable issue.
It's Oliver green with Ford gray wheels.
Other than that the work should be minimal standard stuff.
Well of course she started tearing right into the disassembling of the lucky little tractor.
We started to show the daily work being done to it and then realized we should really start a new thread in the proper location.
So here's a few before pics as a reminder.
Here's the end of Sunday results.
And a pic from Monday nights work.
After this was taken she found some spray on paint stripper and emptied the can on it.
We left it on for 24 hours or so.
And found red paint!!
If you read the restoration thread you'll see that one of my recent posts involves me snapping off the end of the crankshaft during an attempted repair.
You'll also see about a Briggs & Stratton engine I'm going to use.
What I'm looking for in this thread is if anyone has ever put an older style Briggs & Stratton in place of a Tecumseh or even a Kohler....
What are the things I need to watch for?
