So where is the best place to get parts for this tractor, so far I believe I will need breaker points and condensor and a head gasket and a carb kit, just got the thing turning over on the starter yesterday.
Thanking everyone for there fast curtious replys!!attachicon.gifIMAG1364.jpg


That unit does not have breaker points. It is electronic.
You will want to be very careful working on it to not apply power to the wire that goes to the spark module, that will cause an expensive repair.

The Spark on this is what is know as CDI (Capacitive Discharge Ignition) and they are no longer made by the original manufacturer... The used ones command a premium price and the available repair/replace systems are not cheap either, but far better than disposing of the unit.

First thing is to make sure it's the OEM switch, if not, we will have lots of questions.
Assuming the switch is OEM, Remove the spark plug and ground it, then turn it over, watching for spark. If you have spark it's a very good thing, if not, we have a few tests to run.

Motor turns over but slowy with battery fully charged, might the starter be draging and is there a kit you can get for that? Tried the spark but there dosen't appear to be any.

I don't know if you have a starter repair place nearby.
Probably bushings and brushes, if you're comfy taking it apart, they aren't complicated in there and a good cleaning and lube will sometimes do a lot.

As for the spark, we have a couple of tests for you, but we do need the tractor rolling over.

I'll chime in and suggest that you might want to remove the belts from the motor as you try to diagnose slow starter issues.  If something is binding on the belts, the engine will not turn as fast as it should.

Yeah I am comfortable taking it apart but where can I get brushes and bushing for this tractor?

You may have to take it apart and get sizes, but There are several Site Sponsors who should be able to get them for you.

I will let them chime in as needed.

I was just thinking, it might get more exposure as an actual wanted ad.
I would suggest making a separate wanted ad in the parts area.
