After giving my youngest sister a ride around the back yard I went to shut it off, turned the key to "off" , and it was of all things still running..... Ended up pulling the plug wire, found the wire going into the fuse broke off. Now I have to get another one of those along with a voltage regulator now...


Just goes to show, the trusty old 'burbans never want to stop working!

Here is some video from today, had some fun and taught one of my sisters how to drive the LT10.

Should I keep the fuse or is it not necessary? Right now I'm just pulling the plug wire off to stop it but it would be nice to have the key switch connected up again.


Thanks.

Depends what the fuse goes to, I know you should have one to protect the voltage regulator for accidental reverse polarity battery jumping.

fuse is on the kill wire, does not connect to anything else.

I think I can see a crimp connector peeking out just as the wire goes out of sight around the engine shroud. If that's the case, someone added it. I personally can't see a reason to have it on the kill wire as it simply goes to ground when the key is in the off position. That's my $.02.

that goes to a screw in the sheet metal where the wire from the SSI comes out from under the shrouds. Another couple bucks toward the new regulator now, glad I don't need a fuse on it.


I found out it has very good spark.... My arm is still numb 2 hours after I shut it down for the night. I'm resorting to pulling the choke out to shut it down from now on.

Ouch! That sucks! Been there, done that! The choke is a better idea!

My brother even had my camera going a split second before it put my butt back in the seat. All that can be seen is me standing up and leaning forward grabbing it tha the clip ends.


Wish some nicer weather would come around, I'm tire of wearing a sweatshirt going outside again.

I gotta say though, I would take sweatshirt weather over constant raincoat weather any day now.

The jolts ya get from the spark plug does make for a nice reminder doesn't it?

I only like raincoat weather when there's watches and warnings. How ever I will take any rain we can get to kick start mowing season.


A great reminder, more like the best reminder I've had put me on my butt in a long time.
