As I was finishing up mowing this evening, the last pass besides the the driveway. My WH Auto 14 started missing and belching fire out of the muffler. I noticed that the muffler had moved very close to the points cover. I didn't have time to check it out, but I'm hoping that the muffler may have burnt the wire coming from the points to the coil. I hope that's all it is as I have had no issues with my Horse in many years, it always starts and mows well. Maybe it's jealous of  me not giving it the time I give to my Bush Hogs. :wallbanging: :rolling:

Hope it turns out easy, Brian. You need a victory! On the other hand, maybe the Horse is telling you to hang with the KY Hogs!

I always heard if your Horse is down you are supposed to shoot it. 

 

Course then you'd have to fix the burnt wire and a bullet hole......  :(

Be nice to it, give it a sugar cube every once in a while.  Hope it is a easy fix.
