Hi again lol
OK I picked up a very nice original Garage kept Cub Cadet 129 a couple months ago and I've been getting parts together to get the engine rebuilt.It had a a pretty bad Rod knock.I had it bored and installed a .010 over new piston,ring set,STD connecting rod and bought a NOS K301 crank,gasket kit,carb kit,voltage regulator,NOS PTO clutch basket and new PTO clutch disk.
I got a bit of money into this one but it's in very very good original condition.
I recently got the starter generator back from the shop,had them put new studs in it because I didn't feel like soldering and I got a pretty good deal.
Any how I got it all together last weekend and and the engine has a bit more compression than the Starter can handle without putting 24 volt to it.Compression release seems to be working "OK" I did a valve job on it and set the clearances and rechecked everything a couple of times.It has new battery cables,solenoid and switch.
I am Thinking that the starter generator is some how Weak.It has new brushes,studs and bearings and it runs fine with the Belt off and puts out good power but it doesn't have enough snort to turn the engine over.
This is a replacement Starter Generator that the PO had bought and put on.It turned over rather slow Before I rebuilt the engine.It will turn the engine over if I remove the Spark plug but it's not turning very fast even then.
Is there a way to test the starter circuit with an Ohm/volt meter?
I'm pretty much out of money at this time or I would have new field coils put in and have it tested.
I'm using a good 620 CCA Optima battery that I found fits the Cub perfectly.
It's been bugging the heck out of me the past couple of days.
