Jumper around B-112 starter button?

Recommended Posts

macallis180

May look at a B-112 that owner says has a bad starter button - sometimes works, sometimes not. Owner has answered my questions, but I want to know if I can start it by jumper to check it out further. Owner lives 3 hrs. away, so don't want to go there without a way to hear it run and drive.

Thanks.

You can use a jumper cable between the + battery post and the "A" terminal (where the heavy cable attaches) of the S/G. I'd hook the S/G end up first.

Also be sure to turn the ignition switch on so the magneto isn't grounded.

Thanks Bill.

I thought I could do it that way, but wasn't sure. Having never had to start a unit that way, I didn't want to take a chance on doing it wrong. (or burning it up!)

On the points and condenser cover, as standard built, there is a rectangular piece of cambric fastened to the top hole of the cover. Above it there is another hole to connect three wires, the condenser and magneto grounding wire from Briggs. You can see a fine single strand wire disappear in to blower shroud for the magneto. And lastly the key switch grounding wire comes out from the instrument area . It is also a fine single strand wire.

Thank you . I will try that. Should I get a reading one way or another when ohm test the ignition switch terminal wire that go to mag. Same when turn on or off? Where's can get a switch? What is extra terminal for?

Without a A-C product number this should be the sister version for the Simplicity. http://bsintek.basco.com/BriggsDocumentDisplay/heCBEN8arFZrE3CNj5kbp796Dq.pdf

If you look at the wiring section, you'll see a white wire going from the harness down along the carb to the points box. Sorry, I assumed you had the same push button start, they have a blsck mag wire.

On page 33 that white wire is the one we are talking about. I will connect all three under points cover. That same page is switch that get no reading on . Stay same on terminal of white wire?

id="quote">If you have the 4-way plug on the harness , it will go on only one way if memory serves me right. So the terminal the white wire slides over should ignition terminal. Meter reading in ohms should show open with "on", short with "off". Now being your machine almost ready to collect Social Security checks, :D, the terminals on key switch and plug might need some contact spray to clean them off.

HelloBob, thanks for having patience with me. Glad to say my tractor is starting and stopping as it should be. This tractor is example of what USA used to make, and proud people that made them. Seems like everything is junk from China , and doesn't last 5 yrs. Thanks again

      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!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
