At least that's what  heard somewhere.....but here's my newest mower. It's a HT3813 Honda, the PO said their is no spark and it needs a coil so we'll have to see. Any info on this GT would help.                    Honda 001.JPG                                                                                                      Honda 002.JPG                                                                                                        Honda 003.JPG                                                                                                     Honda 004.JPG                                                                                                        Honda 005.JPG                                                                                                        Honda 006.JPG                                                                                                                                                                    I think its pretty cool, and the best part is I bought it cheaper than scrap price.

Nice looking LT, interresting it's water cooled.
I found this picture on a google search

It seems no spark is common... In order of ease of looking...
Kill wire shorted out
Terminal issue. (Relay that will shut down engine without 12v) kinda vague reference, but good to know a bad battery or no charging can mess you up.
Oil pressure switch / wire
Safety switches
Bad transistorized ignition module.

The PO put a new battery in it, and jumped some of the safety switches to try to get it to fire. I had to work today so all I have done is unload it and put it in the garage. I had a would of had a really hard time passing it up for 70 dollars. Thanks for the diagram and hope to get a little wrench time in by the weekend.

I looked at one of those once that wasn't running. But he wanted $500. Let him keep it!

For $70, I think you did a-ok!  Can't go too far wrong with that!

 

It's always been said, "Follow the leader, he's on a Honda"!

 

No, silly, that was "Follow the leader, he's on a Ford!"  :poke: :poke: :D

Those are great mowers for older people. They are easy to get on and off as there are no obstacles to catch your feet on.

Hope it doesn't take much to get it running.

If like my late model Power King Snapper it didn't do a thing till I changed that safety switch module. Apperently it needs to get signals in proper order of use to work correct and allow spark. Would think real hard to by-pass unless you understood electronics well. 

 

Did Honda quit tractors and mowers?  Never see them advertised any more.  I've never seen a NEW dealer around me, so not sure who sold them. They made pretty good push mowers also. SO,what happen to them?  Seems odd!

Nice looking tractor, seems to be in good shape.  Once you get the spark sorted out it should be a good work horse for you.  Good deal!

The last Honda I owned managed to take half a finger from me. Really, no joke. I have A LOT of fun with that. Anyhow the big plan is to get it going and either give it to my older brother to use, or give him my craftsman. I really didn't need it but I couldn't pass it up for the price. It's a neat little tractor and I was afraid it was going to be scrapped. I really wish it was an Oliver or a Allis but I guess they all should be saved when we can. Thanks for all the help and advise

I think " from what I understand" they were very pricey and rather complicated to work on. What little research I have done seem's that they were not big sellers for what ever reason. I know parts are rather limited and pricey.
