Battery for 7016

Recommended Posts

SimpleFarmer

I have repowered my 7016 with a Briggs 18hp twin. Should I still use the 22NF battery? I have starter issues and need to replace the starter, relay, cables, and battery. Is anyone using a different battery successfully? Thanks for the help.

Thanks BLT. I think you are right about the battery hold down clamp. Last season I put a new starter on the engine but did not replace the battery. It does not hold a charge so I put the charger on it every time I started it to get enough volts to start it. I think I may have damaged the starter because I cannot get it to turn over anymore. The starter will engage sometimes but that is all, it will not turn over the engine.

Check ground. If its an "onboard" starter, they ground through the engine block, which grounds through a motor mount bolt. I've seen them loosen, and cause all kinds of havoc. I was helping a neighbor (this probably qualifies for a "senior moment) fix his JD. I pulled the starter apart, and cleaned it out. Worked on the bench, put it back on the tractor, nothing. Put a new solenoid on...Nothing. Finally, checked an un-noticed wire...it went to the motor mount, which was loose. Tightened it up, and Voila! Started like new again! I had to sheepishly return a bunch of new parts

      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!😁
