Selling my 1995 Wheel Horse 416H. This spring I replaced the front wheel bearings and replaced the wire harness. Previous owner had it "butchered" and it wouldn't charge and the key didn't work. Everything is back to stock now with working key ignition and charging system, all new 9-pin main harness. Changed oil last fall and haven't mowed with it this year, thus the sale.
The onan motor runs awesome, I have a 520 that smokes and this one does not, runs smooth. The hour meter quit working last summer and says 615 hours, might be 625 on there now. The one bad on this mower is the seat, well it's from 1995 and is cracked up.
BeOk first off I have a older 80 400 series . Was my father's and I am attached to the old lady.. it Was running ok..
This year after a year outside it just will not start. I am Not a mechanic so working blind.
I have the seat switch bypassed, also the PTO saftey switch. Replaced a lot of little parts,.Don't know if there is something else . so.. history aside.. cranks no start.. using a test light.love my test light.. fixed a lot on some older engines with this.. anyway. Test light not meter. I get power to the points. Power. To the + end of the coil.. a flashing on the neg side of the coil when cranking.. I do get power after cranking on the neg end of the coil.. the two posts not where the spark plugs wires come out.. I do see A white spark seen and heard at the points when cranking and if I pull the points apart when not cranking .. using test light or inline spark plugs test nothing. have not done the pull plug and ground to see.. but using test light I put in on the cable no light.. no light on the coil tower either.. I replaced the coil, condensor and points like 8 years ago I think.. it was hard to start and I was using the manual..
So no spark if power to the coil but nothing out equals bad coil right?? Well the local shops quote for 280 for a coil was a shock. . but looked online hard to find but a little less..
Cannot rember what I spent before..
So worth buying a coil and if so may as well replace points and condensor at same time?? Am I missing something?? Got power going into this and nothing out as I can see.. but heck what to I know..
The Onan in my 520H was running poorly so last month I took the heads off, decarboned, cleaned/reseated the valves, checked valve seats and reassembled with new gasket set. When installing intake manifold, I realized last year (carb cleaning) I forgot to hook up vacuum line from manifold to gauge. Hooked it up correctly this time and ran great. First blizzard yesterday and started snow blowing. After about 15 minutes the became noticeably louder with less power.
I was wondering firstly if anyone has any idea what went wrong?
Also, I was thinking about repowering with a Honda or Vanguard and would love opinions on which way to go? Also, should I go with an engine or kit and which company? I’m good at fabrication, etc.
Thanks in advance!
Some weeks ago I posted about hammered paints that I was trying out on my vise.I was more interested in reactions to the paint but it kinda went sideways so lets see where this goes.
I have had more than one 16.50 x 8 inch wheel that had been beat enough that the bearings would not stay in place.I have a way to swage the hub so that the bearings will take a press fit but that to me is a bandaid for the real issue.I feel that the hub should have been made of thicker material to take the gaff.Other makes use a 1" axle,bigger bearings and thicker hub metal
and I am going to upgrade the WHs to this stronger hub style.Is this an issue for the users here?JAinVA
I have a 79 C-111 that I pulled a running 11hp briggs and stratton engine from and also a front push blade. I am looking to sale both. Push blade 200 Engine 100
I also have the original mowing deck for this mower. I am looking for a WH pull behind tiller attachment, maybe trade?
