New helpful discovery today

Recommended Posts


Atleast I hope it is helpful... Every now and then, my Sovereign (CH18) when started, the starter kind of clicked like it had a low battery. In fact, I charged the battery to full and it started normally. Anyway, what I found, as it was acting up again, I pressed on the hydro lever so that it was firmly on the neutral switch. Starter engaged like new and spun the tractor over nicely. Let up on the hydro lever and back to the chunky starter. So, I had a better functioning switch in the "spares" bin. Replaced and starts like a champ. I was beginning to think I was going to replace a starter soon. Not anymore:)

Rick, also the blue signal wire to starter solenoid has been a problem at times. You might have to install a Bosch relay to entirely eliminate the problem, similar to when you did your re-engine from last year.

Sometimes the trees are in the way of the forest. I have already started to diagnose a problem only to find out I ran out of gas!sm00 Sometimes its the simple things. Life is good!

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
