YES ! That is just life in normal mode isn't it ? The minute we put a deadline on a hobby project, ALL the gremlins seem to get released :(  Now my pull vehicle seems to have joined the fray....Hope to see you in KY !

It might not help you right now, but I believe in sticking with one brand of tractor- more parts can be interchangeable.  Doesn't matter if the tractor is yellow, green, red or anything else.  Just get one ready and go have fun!

I agree with this concept across the board :thumbs:  My issue as of dark last night is the 782 is now not getting spark. Testing wires etc. seems to indicate the coil itself. Guess who doesn't have one other twin cylinder Kohler in ALL this stuff to "borrow" a coil from. I'll be calling places that are between me and Canton today to try and find one. My wife has to go up there today, 96 miles one way. Hopefully somebody within that drive has what I need at a price I can afford. Son's 147 is acting poorly too as of phone call last night, so maybe just me w/o tractor coming down Friday.

With the farm this has proven out time after time to be effective, but now that the newer stuff is becoming so electronic dependent ALL bets seem to be off. Seems the "older/simpler" tractors and equipment work with less hassle more consistently.

Now if I could say the same about my "older" body :( (seems to need more coffee just to start anymore...

You got it. I'll put any of my dads tractors up against a comparable tractor of more modern times. Bethcha the international 986 will stomp a new case ih into the dust
