I was blowing snow today and having fun

was just about done - just clearing a stop by the curb for the garbage cans and it stop running.

thinking that some snow got in someplace and stopped it.

so I got out the JD 214 with the blade to finish up, then when to do some sidewalks for the neighbors.

Had my son  help get the JD 212 back into the garage and check it over.  He looked down at the spark plug cable.  the metal clip that goes into the coil broke.  so I looked around for a spare plug wire and put it on.  it started right up - yeah. 

it is a old spare plug wire, so I am going to get a new one.

It sounds like you are back up and running with minimum expense and down time. You never can tell what will break on an old tractor.

I am glad too.  the motor in the 212 has over 2800 hours on it. if it did I got 1 of 3 - 12 hp motors that can go in it.

the head on the motor has never been off,  still runs good and the compression is starting to go down a little.

I am going to run it till it totally stops.  It has been my main garden tractor since 1980

I though that was the high hour tractor and is certainly a keeper.

Glad it was easy. 212's are very rugged.
