on the JD 210 I got from Craigslist
I was checking it over today and cleaning it up
why would somebody ran a wire from the positive side of the battery to a troggle switch then to the positive side of the coil?
I check the switch with a multi meter and it checks okay.
also check the rest of the wiring from any shorts - so far so good
had fun cleaning the motor - a mouse make a nest behind the flywheel housing
lots of little nuts and some walnuts it there
he told me that he rebuild the motor and it rum great, but he had problems with the drive belts
so out came the variator and check it over. a little work on it and now it is spins free.
will open up the transaxle this week and check it over
had to get a battery for it - went to a junk yard and brought a battery from a 2012 Ford for $35
got a year warranty this it.
