I got a request to make a thread here about my progress in getting my 1254 running. I have been showing progress from the beginning on MTF (http://www.mytractor...1254-going.html)
I won't go back and show what I have done, but I will if I am asked. I just got 'er running for the first time yesterday! Very exited as this is my very first GT. But it came with some problems, like one of the drive belts came off and lodged itself next to the tightener pulley which cut it halfway through
I still have to mount the coil, as I just have it kinda hanging there where the old one was. I'm going to skip getting all the electrical hooked up for now, and just pull start it until I do.
Here's the video of I believe the second start, I can't seem to find the first one.
Here's a video (as fuzzy as it may be) of the first time it popped:
I have adjusted the carb main jet so it runs much better now, I'll get a video of it running full bore maybe today.
Also, I have the coil grounded with a pair of alligator clips, but I have an on-off switch that I would like to use to kill it with. I think it's rated at about 15 amp. Is that going to work? I would be using 14 gauge wire also.
Have a great day!
