Re: Well brought it home...8162-B.
Ok, the good news is that I got my 50 inch mower rebuilt, hung, and even mowed with it. So after many hours of welding and fabricating last summer, I have a fully functional and very solid 50 inch mower.
The bad news is the tractor shut off like someone hit a switch after about an hour of mowing...no warning, nothing, it was like I switched it off. I rewired this thing when I brought it home, so I know the wiring is functional. I checked the main fuse (which I replaced with a mini-blade fuse), it was fine. I pulled and reset all the connectors, including the switch.
It turns over, but won't hit. I tried to check spark, but it's so bright out I couldn't see anything (meaning either it has no spark, or it has spark I can't see). Gas is good, if it was vapor lock it would have done it earlier and gave indication that was happening.
Where should I start? I'm guessing confirm the switch works, then onto points, condenser, and coil? This is a single lung 16hp Briggs...first it's given trouble.
