The trigger is bad. Replacement is costly.

Looking at Brian Miller's replacement kit. Any comments.

Just did the swap on my GT14.  easy enough to do.  not familiar with his kit.  you need points, points cover and gasket, plunger 4741104-s, coil and condenser.  will need to get a new ignition switch.

Brian has some great stuff on his web site and the convenience of one stop shopping can't be beat. The GT-14 is a great machine,    :wwp:

Great, thank you for your reply. Would like to keep the machine as close to original as possible,that is breakerless and solid stare.

Did you test the trigger?  If you want to stay original it will cost you....

Finally got a chance to recheck the trigger. Still checked  bad. Checked the coil it is OK. You are right it would be costly to keep original.

Will probably use Brian's equipment,

Going to rewire the machine. What size wire, 14 or 16 or a combination.

Thanks for your help.

You will find that 14 gauge wire works well for everything. The connectors on your wiring system are Delphi-Packard GM 56 Series. Yuo can find them at a GOOD auto parts store or on :techie-ebay:        Don't use the junk connectors you find at the hardware store, they will come apart on you while you are driving.

      Need help adding oil drain piping to Koehler K241 with 1/2” drain plug

      Totally rebuilt Kohler 321S 14HP new STANDARD Piston, Rings, Carburetor and Starter, cylinder honed (was in Kohler specs) Starts and runs better then new. I am firm on the price if you want it for a lower price I can take of the new starter and carb. I have a video of this puppy running just send me your email and I will forward to you. This was for a GT14 but I ended up not needing it. This engine came off a Ford Tractor and it has the deep sump with the bottom hump, it does have threaded holes for mounting from the bottom but you would probably need to notch the frame a bit. This engine runs like a Swiss watch and absolutely NO smoke. Thanks for looking  - Rob

      Will the PTO work from the 312 Hydro with a 12 hp Kohler onto the 416-8 Onan?  My PTO disc went today. Any help would be most appreciated.

      Posting for my Father - If I still lived in Bucks I would clean her up and get her started.  I love that there is a club of enthusiasts for Wheel Horse tractors!
      Make us a reasonable offer and you can come and get it!  (We are near Peddlers Village) Has not been turned on in years but confident it runs if you take the proper steps.
