Work troubleshooting motor no start issue again, crank it so much drained the battery down, Its getting fuel to the carb bowl but not making it into the engine. This happened before. I got it started once had to jump the battery, it ran but knocked a lot, tried to adjust jets it killed the eng. I removed carb, going to get it blow out with compressed air and install the new kit. Don't know how it went from running to completely no start.

 

Question how does this machine charge up the battery, nothing in the manual?

 

Painted final coat on mower deck and parts looks great

when you work on the gas tank, did you check the screen in the shut off valve?

most if the ones I work on the screen was bad.  so I removed them and clean the shut off valve and put a inline fuel filter in the gas line.

 

did you replace the fuel line?

sometimes the inside fuel line flakes off and goes into the carb

lyall,

 

I did have that rust chip problem before, but cleaned the tank about 5 times looks really clean now.

 

 

Yes a new filter bowl and screen, new gas line to engine, and an inline fuel filter, it seems the inline might be a little slow (Will change), the filter bowl did have gas in it, but the spark plug was not wet after choking,

 

I cleaned the carb and thats when it started once and not again.

 

I will blow out the carb with air and use my new rebuild kit and change the in line filter and drain the gas and add new gas.

Depressing but I still have hope! Cleaned carb the best I could, removed in line gas filter (In case of restriction) dump out a gal of good gas and cleaned gas filter bowl, put in new clean gas, reinstalled carb NO JOY!! Nothing! Checked still have great spark!, checked still have compression.

 

Removed carb again taking to work for a guy can blow it out with compressed air for me, then I will clean and install another new kit.

 

Any body know a good deal on a new Carter N carb?

 

During all this I worked on the mower deck cleaning and painting parts, its going well, Im pleased

poppyshoppe:

 

Nice looking 110, and welcome to GTTalk. My 1st garden tractor was a 110, back in 1977 or 78. Hard to remember anymore. Anyway, I had the mower deck a snowthrower, and later bought a tiller. Loved that tractor.

Spain

We all have problems

mowing with my 112 today and I notice the amp gauge was not changing

and the electric  lift went up and have a hard time going down

got it back to the garage and started looking at the wiring

 

I looked at the regulator and I saw a wire broke off from the clip

looked around for a new clip and I have the male clip not the female clip

I could cut up one if my spare wiring harness - but said no (hate to cut up a harnes) - I need to buy some female clips

because if it happen again I will have them

 

you just got to like old wiring harness

 

I guess I should buy a bunch of colored wire or get colored shrink tubing and make new wiring harness - it would help solve a lot of wiring problems

What is the serial number on your deck?  Part of me wonders if the idler/tensioner pullies are too large.  Considering some of your other challenges with "non Deere" parts or changes I could see this a potential problem.

Tried to install it without the one upper pulley no joy, maybe it was modified  with other bigger pulleys in order to use the NAPA belts?

 

I need a picture of someone else      to compare, I couldn't find any on line Heres the SN

 E0660 SN 111763M

 

If the tension pulley was smaller, it appears it would fit? Grandpa had an "S" hook at the end of the tension spring to connect it to the deck, I though it was because the NAPA belt was too big, maybe its because the tension pulley is TOO Big? Look at the old belt spring with the "S" hook attached to the spring and frame
