Just made a deal and hope to pick it up later this week. Its a 1969 1450 serial number 1673 so an early 69 and I think 1969 was first year too.

Looks like you didn't though!

Good for You!

Can't hardly go wrong for $50 .

That electric actuator looks like it has seen its better days .

From the topic title I also was thinking Cub Cadet .

Glad you scored on that. If the actuator doesn't work, I'd still be interested in it as I have a working motor for one.

The pics actually make tractor look worse than it is. Hood is just unbolted so that dont help either. The grille is with it just not in place. Only thing I could tell it was missing was battery cover which I can make. If I can get it running and driving well I might have a new plow tractor! :D

Fingers crossed maybe by next weekend I'll have her going! I think on the 1450 they had a lever to lock the differential if you started slipping thus driving both wheels to get out. Anybody know this for sure? I just read about it in the White Town and Country brochure. Guy said hydro and everything worked good 3 years ago when parked. Said only problem was intermittant spark since it's breakerless it might ed up getting converted to points if its anything bad but first I'll start by changing the spark plug.

I have a '70 Jake 1450 and have not seen anything about a differential lock. I just figured out how the breakerless ignition works and I love it. Make sure the stator is working like it should. There is a 3rd wire off it to run the ignition.

Ok I will have to check out the stator. guy said he replaced something that had to do with the flywheel

Would this engine block have the hole for the plunger so i could get a plunger, points, condenser, and coil and rewire to make it points?

I don't know the answer to that question as I haven't looked. One thing I found with mine was when I removed the flywheel, the gap for the trigger was off. That may be an issue. Check the stator as you would for all others, but the output voltage will be lower! This is the thread I figured this all out in.

I asked my local machinist who has lots of experience with Kohler engines this same question a few weeks ago. He said that all cams have the lobe to run the breaker push-rod. The block should already be drilled and tapped for the points cover, and there is usually a plug that can be popped out for the push-rod. Otherwise it may need to be drilled out. He also recommended to use a steel, not aluminum, push-rod since the aluminum tends to wear harder on the cam lobe.

 

I have a Ford 140 and a White 114. The Ford had already been converted when I got it, someone had attempted it on the White. If you convert it to points, you will need to change the ignition switch also so there is a constant power lead to the coil in on/start position. The switch is the same as John Deere part AM103286. Cheapest I found was on ebay for $10.40, free shipping.

I forgot to look at my K321S yesterday to see if there is any provision to add the points. I know it would be hard to adjust them with the engine sitting sideways in there.
