So, honestly I just took the guy's word that it needed a new ignition coil. There was no battery present so I couldn't even try it, I want to buy a new battery but have no idea what size I need, how many col cranking amps does it need to be? I'll change the rear end and motor oil and also the spark plug and will give it a whirl to see what happens. So, the main question is, what battery size?

If the previous owner kept the new wiring to specs you wont need a battery to start the tractor if you just want to see if it runs before buying a battery.

Its Magneto powered so all you have to do is remove the starter belt and just pull start it.

You've never seen one of these?!

 

 

I recommend as big a battery as you can get.

Can anyone tell me where the ground cable is supposed to be mounted on the frame?  It was missing when I got the Husky.

Sorry I missed this,

Ground generally gets bolted to one of the  dash side bolts,

So, I'm trying to figure out the wiring here, I attached some pictures.  Also have a wiring diagram I downloaded somewhere but it doesn't show the wire coming from the engine/ignition coil?  See page 15

You may be better off taking all that wiring out and going back to the oem key and push button starter.

The original push button starter acted as the solenoid so you could eliminate the one that someone cobbled on there.

I was thinking of just adding a (universal) push button switch for the starting and using the key switch just to turn on the ignition.  Bolens 1000, can you tell me where the wire goes that comes from theignition to the right side of the engine?  I don't see this on the diagram anywhere?
