Thanks to all who answered my question about the starter on my RC a few days ago! Now I have some direction. Also, I spoke with the previous owner and he says the ring gear is definitely bad. :o( Looks like I'm gonna have to split it to get it working.
On a better note, I decided to check out the valves yesterday as the last time I had it running it sounded like a JD 2-cyl! After sitting in the shed for what seemed like 6 months, I checked the battery and it was still up! Switched on the lights but nothing happened.

Turned on the ignition and choked her about 3/4, gave the hand crank a pull and she fired up! Still missing real bad, though.
Drove her out into the driveway so I had light and pulled off the hood and then the valve cover. No wonder it was missing! One rocker arm each for #3 and #4 had jumped out of the pushrods. Put everything back like it should be and now she purrs. Turned out to be a great tractor day after all! - Thanks again, Phil

He had over a period of months spent a fair amount of his hard earned cash on replacement parts for the old "trembler" ignition. Sadly though all his efforts seemed to be a waste of time and money as he still couldn''t get the temperamental old thing to run correctly!! If i said that this was a little frustrating for him that would be "conservative" in fact the problem had reduce ... [Read Article]
