9020

Perfect,thank you so much. I guess I joined the right group of people.ni bought a non running 9020 with the 60" deck, 52" snowblower, and a soft cab for $200.00. I had to clean the carb and do some new wiring but runs great now except for the starter that went the other day. According to what I've read on here I guess I got a good deal.

Be sure and check the wiring and switches carefully before pulling the engine to replace the starter is I have had problems with bad connections on mine that I acted like a bad starter.

Yup sounds like a good deal and ditto for all suggestions to check the starter and safety circuit wiring. Mine was as simple as toggling the pto clutch switches on and off a few times before turning the key

Thanks for the suggestions,I'll check the connections today. All the wiring was just redone last year and the connections seemed tight but I guess you never know. The tractor was cheap enough that if I have to put a starter on it I really don't mind. I already pulled the motor and removed the starter, but thanks

You might want to take the starter apart & assure ALL is clean on the inside. Make sure the brushes are free & move. Lot's of dust, dirt & debris fly around in there..... While you have it out, putting in a starter relay might be a good idea. using small amps to move big amps is always a good thing.

Just piling on my 2 cents as well.

My 720 needed to have the commutator smoothed out and the mica cut back.

This can be done on the bench with a piece of emery cloth and a broken off hacksaw blade.

As the copper pads wear down, the mica insulator between them does not, and ends up siting higher than the copper causing the brushes to float and arc.

You simply work the hacksaw blade back and forth carefully to cut the mica so it sits below the copper by a few thousandths, and them wrap the emery cloth around the pads and buff like you are shining a shoe.

As long as there is still some material in the brush this trick useally get it working.

Good luck with yours.

Thanks for the info. I took the starter to a local rebuild guy. He bench tested it and it seemed to work. I put it back on and got the same grinding noise as before. Could the starter make noise under a load such as turning over a motor but not when bench testing it. He said it could still need a rebuild but it worked on the bench

If he's capable of rebuilding it I would have had it done, they claim that new are available but I haven't seen any, they do come up on Ebay now and then. Just my $.02

      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.
