Been looking for a small skid steer and a couple I have been checking out are Case 1816 and Hydra-Mac that use the 16 hp tecumseh . I am sure there are others.
I would like to know how hard it is to find parts? Want to be careful not to buy something that can not be fixed.

Parts are easy to find.  I sell rebuild kits for $149 for the OH160/150.  You can get almost anything salvage if you know where to look, and other parts NOS.  The only caveat I give is that oversize piston assemblies are not cheap. 

 

And those stupid solid state ignition units are also not cheap.  Make sure it has spark before you buy it or you will spend up to $300 trying to find one IF you can find one.

I too have found the crazy price on the solid state ignition. Price was as much as the whole tractor. Have a JD 112 with the HH100.

Certain models of HH solid states are worse than others when it comes to price and failing.  However, Ed Stoller of Engines and Magnets details how to repair them or make a reproduction.  I plan to try that next chance I get.

 

The rule of thumb is never ever spin the engine without something attached to the spark plug lead grounded to the engine.  Otherwise, you will wonder why you have no spark and after that is corrected why your wallet is empty.

well let us know how the repo goes, I have a 10hp here with a dead system and really don't want to spend a ton getting it running. Be cheaper to junk the tractor.

The OH motors are decent motors and parts are still available, many used ones on evilbay.

The SSI modules are their down fall, but there are alternatives to that fix, better actually than the SSI modules that are waaayyyy overpriced on ebay.

Overnight solutions is the bes tplug and play.

Ed Stoller and Brain Miller ( garden tractor pulling tips) both have good systems, but convert to battery -coil system.

I have a conversion on mine using a simple trigger to fire a coil that is uses on Kohler single cyl pulling motors.

This fellow sells a plug and play ignition that replaces the solid state.   Works great.
