I got a 69 JD 112 that had a Tecumseh HH100 in it
it looks complete, but one of the flywheel fins is broken
I was going to rebuild it but with the fin being broken - I will not rebuild
it has the starter and carb still on it
I pulled the head and the cylinder looks good

so if anybody can use this motor or part form it let me know

I am located in State Center Ia
I will not ship the complete because of the cost of shipping it as a unit

I will ship the parts off it

the parts will be cheap and shipping ( which shipping will be more that the part cost)

I hope somebody can use the motor or parts from it

you can PM me with what you need and what you will pay for the part/s.

Many guys over the years have run into that. Often a viable option for tractors that aren't going to be worked hard is to break off the opposing fin to balance. Some guys have even gone so far as to be very precise n how much was removed.

Considering the number of these tractors out there with mouse colonies and ten pounds of dust in there, a fin missing shouldn't mess up the cooling very much on a tractor that's going to shows or doing lite work...

Good luck.

BTW, I edited out the phone number. Best to use the PM system so web bots don't see the number and send it around the world to all the phone solicitors.

I'll ask the question that everyone is probably wondering: is the solid state any good?

That's how the flywheel is on my OH160. I broke one off trying to remove flywheel nut, broke the opposing one off to help balance. I actually think it helps smooth out a vibration I had before I remove it.

I find broken flywheel fins all the time, and I do break them off opposite to balance.  It works best when there is a screen in place, otherwise you can see gaps in the teeth like a six year old!

 

I did have an old guy tell me once that he was trained to bust off the fins on 1/4 intervals to get better balance.  I never bought that, but it is interesting. 

 

They used to drill holes to balance them.  Older flywheels were still done that way, my older Michigan Clintons are and some of the Wisconsins are. 

 

However, I do have a Wisconsin that needs a new flywheel because every bloomin' fin is long gone.  I can't believe that something got caught and snapped them all, since those thick cast iron fins are not easy to splinter off.  Someone got happy balancing a flywheel there, I guess.  :rolling:

I do not know if the coils is good or bad

I got the 112 with a cab ( it for the 110, 112, 120 or 140) and a easy-rake thatcher as a package deal 

 

the guy I bought it from got it years ago for parts and he just let it sit

shipped the carb to Canawler today

 

I took the motor all apart and looked the parts over, and from I can tell most of the parts are good

the solid state look entack, but I do not know how to test it

 

tried to get the muffler elbow off - but no luck

 

if any body wants/needs just PM me 

 

your only cost will be shipping and a dollar or two for me

I never stop using an engine over just "a" brokn fin on a flywheel,  I have had (and broken) many myself over the years the engine will run the same and no ill effects... now if a SECTION of finS  are gone that's different
