  1. OK, lets see ya favorite tractor you own and use

    My favourite πŸ™‚
  2. IH LB Engine

    I picked up an old lb motor (3-5hp) that I plan on restoring. It is complete and turns freely, but the previous owner said it has been in the barn untouched for at least 20 years. Surprisingly, the oil wasn't horrible when I changed it, but I don't have much spark. I took the points cover off and when I cranked the engine, there was no spark. I took some sand paper and cleaned the points with it and I am now getting spark fairly consistently at the points, but nothing at the cap or at the plug. The cap where the spark plug wire comes out is cracked, but has been repaired at some point. The little tab inside seems good. I tried a different plug wire with a new plug but still nothing. Having little experience with magnetos and points, where should I investigate next? Does Steiner carry any of these parts? I found an owners manual, and that cap seems to be the same as the one in Steiner's catalogue... however maybe the coil itself is bad??? I am kind of lost as to what to do next...
  3. tricycle front axle

    Sounds silly but make sure none of the wheel bolts have come loose... that happens to me occasionally.

  8. alternator belt to loose

    Matt is correct... you loosen and remove the fan belt first, then you can remove the belt on the alternator.

    It has a magneto converted to coil... 2 wire push pull switch.
  10. Farmall A Wiring

    My 46 A wasn't charging, so I took the generator to a shop to have it repaired. They rebuilt it and put a new box on as well. He told me when I got it back that this box was a little different than the old one, and all I had to hook up was the battery wire. There were 2 wires I had to remove when I took it went to the BAT hookup on the box, and there was another wire that bolted to the stud on the generator itself. On the rebuilt unit, he said to hook up the wire to the BAT terminal on the box and that was it... no need for the other wire. With this regulator there is no high and low charge, just the one setting is what he told me. Should I buy a new switch that only has one position on it? The switch I have now has low charge, high charge, dim lights, bright lights. Should I get a new wire harness as well? Or just tape off the wire I no longer need? It's a 6 volt, positive ground system... all original as far as I can tell

  14. Hydro 186

    I just saw this Hydro 186 for looks clean, but what exactly is the Red Power decal? Is that an aftermarket thing, or was this at the factory? And what exactly does this it purely cosmetic or does that mean something deeper? I don't know much about Hydro's but this one looks nice...
  15. Stalling Farmall A

    Well I changed the coil and so far it has been fine... it stalled twice in over 50 starts, and both times was first thing in the morning when it was cool... when I restarted with the choke it fired up immediately unlike previous attempts before swapping coils. Time will tell I guess πŸ˜‰
