Thanks for the info , unfortunately my beast needs a heart surgery , I had the chance to tinker a little with it today , I freed the engine that was seized soaked it with mystery oil and diesel, after like 2 hours I turned it by hand back and forth , it freed up right away , it turns but I feel something rubbing inside , not every turn though , every like 4/5 turns the noise comes , I don't wanna fire it before I open that engine to see what's going on , from what I can see it is been sitting for at least 9 years , the gas in it turned to varnish and water .

You were absolutely correct about mouse house with supplies , I took the engine out , on the work bench I turned it , I knew right away something around the fly wheel not inside the engine . took the covers out , I was chocked to see all the walnut shells around a pound , so the engine been cracking walnuts , and packed with stuff, luckily they didn't chew the wires . . any way I took every thing out , cleaned the heck out of it , starter engine frozen , I replaced , rebuilt the carb with new kit and cleaned it well . new gas pump , put every thing together , time to fire it up , I cleaned the points fresh gas , cranked it , no start , I checked no spark , got dark , tired , I was like time to go rest tomorrow another day .

It is very common for the ignition coil to go bad on the KT engines. And they are very expensive to replace.

You should have 4-5 ohms across the +/- terminals (primary) and 9500 to 11,500 across the 2 secondary (high voltage) terminals.

If not it is junk.

I just lost another coil this fall on a KT19. I replaced it with a Harley Davidson coil. About 1/3 the cost.

The beast in action now , NO SPARK was due to the points adjustment been wrong , I gapped them to 0.20" and that beast fired right up , runs smooth like a car , very strong engine , back on feet again after all these years , I love this tractor .I am going to Sherwin Williams to have them match the paint , as I couldn't find that paint on line any where unless some one can drop a link , I got the code for it but no luck .

In this pic my beast is running .

What is the problem with the gas getting into the crank case? Mine did that the other day,.havn't really looked into it yet but put a fuel shut-off on also. Only things I could figure is stuck float or something wrong with fuel pump.

Can you guys give me a heads up on what it is?

Thanks8D

They stock quart cans and spray cans of the Deutz-Allis Spring Green. This is where I bought it from for my 914H. Great people to deal with and they have been in business since 1935. Maybe thay can ship what you need.

It can be either the carb float or the fuel pump. My experience is that if you get gas in the crankcase it is the fuel pump has an internal leak (bad gasket). On the KT twins usually if the float sticks the gas comes out around the carb and all over the outside of the engine and (maybe with the long intake tubes) does not get inside the engine.

      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!😁
