I picked up an AC 416S parts tractor today with the intent to use the motor to repower another 410S I have here. The 416S is badly rusted and not worth fixing. I have the motor off on the bench, the wire is broke off the PTO clutch and I need to remove the coil to see if I either can resolder the wire or just have to replace it. I have the original PTO clutch off my other 416S that I no longer use since that machine don't run a deck.
I removed the front bolt, collar, and pulley, and I removed the four bolts holding the coil to the block. It won't budge, I soaked it in Kroil for two days, tapped at it for hours, but nothing. I even tried applying some heat with a propane torch but don't want to get it too hot and damage either the coil or crankshaft. So far it won't budge even the slightest.
