Aloha, New member from Hawaii, just purchased a used 2006 GT 5000, 26 HP, 48" Deck. When I get it running again, I'll be using it as light duty farm use on our 1 acre lot. I do plan on upgrading this unit to run hydraulics for attachments, a DIY FEL, drag bucket, and others, but first I have to get it started.
When I picked it up it ran fine- started up first turn and loaded into my truck fine (straight shot). Started up and offloaded fine, though when I bought it, it only turned right. It was the steering sector and I knew that when I bought it. Limped it to the slab I have for storage, and got the part changed out; I go to start it and nothing. I figure it's in the electrics, either the seat switch, the Gear lever switch, or something of that line.
Anyone have any ideas on how to bypass these items to rule them in or out as the troublemaker?
When it did run, it was a good puller and I am looking forward to building the attachments to get my farm chores done more easily. That is what these are for right?
