For those with an ammeter but no electric start.  Is the ammeter wired to anything?  If so, to what?

My ammeter is not wired to anything.

When I am done painting I plan on pluging it with a removable cap.

there's no reason for a gage if there's no battery and nothing to hook it up to. Maybe some one put it in for looks. Who made the gauge? I think all the dashs had the hole and they just covered it if it was just a pull start. I think I still have the plug if you want it.

Looks like one of the PO's started on mine as the engine has e/start, but never finished. The wiring is a little cobbled, and I am not going to attempt to start it until I get the full skinny on what goes where for what. I will go look as I don't know yet.

Went out to look at it quick. The gauge does not have a name, or logo anywhere, and is not wired. I tried to get a pic, but it wouldn't turn out. I looked at my Jacobsen's, and they have "SW" logo which is probably Stewart Warner.

 

The toggle on the dash looks like a kill switch wired into the mag. I don't see anything for the starter. I think the PO just used the Arm+hand+handle+rope=start method.

 

I am interested in the dash plug. PM me on that so we can discuss that. Thanks,

More pics for the forum to enjoy!       Kind of?

 

Seems the starter clutch is missing, ID tag is painted over/gone, throttle linkage has no cover, air cleaner tube missing adapter to filter, no spark, valve cover breather tube missing.

 

I can fix all of it if I find the parts, but dont where to get the fitting to get the air cleaner to fit the downdraft tube, and dont know how to remove paint fron ID tag without destroying  it (if it has one).

 

It does however have great compression, no dents that I can see, and over all looks ok. This one when running will go in my t65 once I get it (if I decide to put it in the t65), but gotta get er thumpin first. My other engine, the Kohler k 141, will most likely end up in the t75 as this tractor is further away from being original.  (but cool none the less)

Yes, it is on the Tecy 10hp, on the tractor now. That rubber puck is beyond shot!

I've got one that is WAY worse. It still works though. Just gotta adjust everything to compensate.

I got the old thumper running. It runs good with no smoke, or ticking. I changed it over to electronic ing., and a few other parts to boot. I also discovered that this engine is close, but not the real deal. If you look closely at the head, there are 9 bolts. That, and the linkage to the carb with internal governor is all signs of a 8hp engine. The engines look very similar in size.  I only need one part to make it complete, and that's the air cleaner. The one pictured above that came with it looks to be off a model 14 or similar. I have a strong suspicion that I will have a hard time locating one.
