Re: GT262 not turning over
Thanks. I did that. The problem is intermittent. When I checked the voltage on the solenoid circuit it had 12v. So I figured it was either the generator or the solenoid. Solenoid engaged with the unit removed so I figured it could be the brushes wearing out. The machine is over 25 yrs. old with the original starter. Unfortunately, one of the springs holding the brushes jumped and I was never able to find it so I needed to replace the generator in any event. But that didn't do it. At that point I was not getting 12V on the solenoid so figured it was the safety/ignition module. Can't test that so I replaced it. At first the machine started right up but then reverted to its old ways of needing a boost from a charger. Finally, yesterday I couldn't get it to run at all when it stalled way down in the lower meadow. Had to drag it back up with my tractor.
