Recommended Posts

turn the key nada not a thing. tested for power thinking it might be the ignition switch - no power when key is turned so I thought it was the ignition switch. Brought power directly to starter,plenty of sparks but nothing else. Bad starter right?

What kind of Engine? Briggs? Briggs brushes in the end cap burn out, you can get the end cap with the brushes from Briggs dealers.

Ordered new starter to arrive tomorrow, since the first post have been trying to start tractor a couple of times a day, basically every time time I walk by it. Dead not a sound, this AM did the same thing and it started right up a couple of times. What gives ????????????

Did you take the starter apart? On Onans, There's SO much junk & 'stuff' flyin' where the starter is & it's a pain in the butt to get out, the brushes seize up from all the 'stuff' in there. IF the brushes can't touch the armature, nada. Sometimes... the brush springs manage to get it close enough for contact (temporary/intermittent starting). There's always the issue of getting the 'FULL' 12V to the starter too. Al Eden's kit or relay to the starter.... JP

I would say a bad Solenoid. Or dirty/loose connections to Solenoid. Eddy go to http://www.kohlerplus.com/login.asp click on enter as guest click on Magnum click on M20 At bottom of page Service manuals click on TP-2204-b and down load the service manual PDF. It has a trouble shooting section section 4 and Electrical section 8 that describes how to test solenoid and starter.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul

      I assume it's a bosche, correct
