Correct crank for sure!  Bush Hog did whatever they had to to get tractors on sales floors.

I love how after all these years, we're still learning new things about these machines.

Not sure if you remember but a good while back, I was told by an old dealer that he had a few Bush Hogs that had Craftsman motors in them.......so when I saw the serial number of this motor I thought it might be a replacement motor. So I compared it to Brian's D4-12 motor serial number and it was very close to his. I am thinking that the really early D4-12's may have had these repainted craftsman motors in them. Daniel can you look at this picture of the crank and tell if it is the correct crank?? I have sent an email to my dealer friend to see if he remembers if the 12 was the BH that had the craftsman motors in them. Will let you know what he says. attachicon.gifImageUploadedByTapatalk1421794561.892404.jpgattachicon.gifImageUploadedByTapatalk1421794578.421118.jpgattachicon.gifImageUploadedByTapatalk1421794589.296316.jpg

 

Hey Scott, Where is that Craftsman Decal located at on the engine. I will do a little checking on mine to see if I can find it.

Need a little help. I have pulled off the front of the JB to replace the armature and not sure we're these wires go. I know one is a ground, but what does the other do?
Also my other one has a wire going to the breaker box, there are no wires going to or from the box?? The wiring was messed up on this tractor, so I may have to rewire the front of the tractor.

The small unshielded wires go to ground.  The one with the eyelet on it would be the kill wire.  But that coil appears to be for the later magnetron pointless ignitions.  It could be the flywheel has been polarized to use this type coil. One can send Briggs the old point type flywheels & have it magnetically polarized to use the later style pointless coils.  Just run your kill wire to this eyelet & give it a try.  If it has a big fat hot spark, then likely it's been changed over.

  IF this is the correct coil for the old point system, then there would be a wire from the back of the bolt in the cover going down to the points.  Test with an ohm meter with wire off the bolt, to be sure there is no connection between the bolt & the metal shield it goes through.  The bolt should be isolated from the metal with composite washers.

:ditto: thats what I was thinking, that coil is of a newer type that would have been on it originally.

Upon checking pics of old points coils vs solid state coils, it does appear you have the correct coil for points ignition.

 

Yours does match the coil to the far left in this pic.  So you would run your wire from the back of the small bolt to the points.

Oh, and your grounding kill wire can connect either at the points, or connect it at the bolt as well.

Here is a picture of what was on it and what I bought to put on it. I bought it based on my manuals and the number it showed for the armature. Note the older one has a magnet on the bottom, the newer one does not. Daniel can I still use it?

Woops....it has been changed over to the newer type which do not use the points!  I'm not sure if that style of coil required flywheel re-polarizing or not.  I've never dealt with a conversion myself. ......... I would much rather not use points, but from what I've just researched & read, you can use either type coil with your flywheel.

I guess that explains why the top right side of the motor shroud had been cut and bent to allow for the wiring to exit from the right instead of the normal left side (breaker box).Since there were no wires needing to attach to the points.? Still not sure what I should do next.
