Also here is a pic of the identification Number ImageUploadedByTapatalk1398214032.401485.jpg
It says 72 in bold print, does that mean its a 1972? Like the year? I would like to find the manual for this...

So today i threw a battery in from my deere (as its not running at the moment, but u will get into more detail soon...) fired right up! :) Runs and drives great! Its actually as fast as my Troy-Bilt that has a 7 speed tranny (really a series of pulleys) so i was driving that around my yard after school, pretty much all afternoon lol. It a lot of fun, with me and my little bros just driving tractors around the yard. Here's a pic attachicon.gifImageUploadedByTapatalk1398210198.403226.jpg the tape is because, the seat is filled with foam and it is soaked with water. I didn't want to get my pants soaking wet so i put a rag and taped it to the seat lol... It works (kinda) for now. Maybe i can buy a new seat cause this one is pretty beat up. Unless i can get it repaired or something. So what do ya think?

Ok so the deere... My little bro was driving it and it ran out of gas. So u put some more gas in (about 1/3 full) so i tried to fire it back up... Hmmmm, wont start... It will turn over and over and over etc. so the problem is the engine is not getting any fuel. It has the gas tank under the seat with a mechanical fuel pump up at the motor. I don't know if these fuel pumps are repairable? Or just disposable? Not to sure how to take it apart, if i even can take the little pump apart. Maybe i can find one on ebay? Please help! My little bros wanna drive it around and i would like to get it back up and running soon.

Also the wheelhorse... The lights dont work, and the brake pedel dosent work. I havent really taken a good look at the brake yet. But would it be ok to tip the tractor on its side (like up against a tree or something) to look underneath or work on it? Will oil get into places it shouldn't? I just want to check here before i do this...

First, Nice Wheel Horse!

Second, if your fuel pump is bad (on your JD), one that new is probably not serviceable. There should be a little vacuum hose coming from the valve cover, to the fuel pump. You might check and see if it's cracked. Your local Briggs dealer would probably have one, or could order you one. They're also available on the internet. One way to see if the pump is bad, is to hook a small fuel tank (via fuel line) directly to the carburetor, and bypass the pump completely. If you could give me the numbers (model, serial, etc.), I can look up your engine and see what a fuel pump would cost.

Third, I think if you tip your WH on it's back, you will be ok.

From a safety standpoint, you would be best to study the brake linkage on paper, then climb under. Tipping a tractor on its side can get fluids in the wrong spots as well as the fall on you factor.

Yup, thats why im looking for the manual to see if i can find any info in there. I have a 4 ton jack, that should lift it up a little lol (just a little overkill...) i could get under it im sure to check things out with the brake system.
Just need that manual...

Going by your model# and code date, a fuel pump would cost $42.61 (through Jack's Small Engines). What is strange, is that the pump for a later code date, is actually cheaper ($18.00). For some reason, the pump for your engine comes with the mounting bracket, perhaps explaining the high cost. I wonder if the cheaper one would work on yours?

Yeah, it does have a built-in mount with one bolt. Its my family's tractor now so its not my money. Cause i was using that until i got my wheel horse... Do you have a link to those pumps? I may be able to rig something up for the cheaper one.

Here's a link to the parts diagram for your WH: http://www.jackssmal...-List/TORO/4571

Your WH is a 1977. I hope these diagrams help.

I found the info I gave you, at the same place I gave you a link to for your WH diagrams.

Hello Zach,
Have you gotten anywhere on your WH or JD?
