Picked this gem up this morning. Story goes it was winterized three years ago and sat since. Definitely had a couple mods done to it. The rear tow bar looks a little beefier than stock and there's a bracket welded to the front that might be for suitcase weights? How rare is the hydraulic lift? Pix as it just came off the trailer:

If that front add-on is for weights, its to use the BIG ag tractor weights. Looks beefy enough to use as a pusher.

After a bath, that is going to look awfully nice.

After a visit to the power washer. Still need to go after it with a rag to get the grime off of it.



Looks like 39" brass tag mower deck:



Drained the oil and off to chase a new spark plug and maybe air filter.

Yes that is in good shape and so is the deck! Very nice find! Not sure how rare hydraulics are on that. Seen mamy 112's with similar hydraulic on them.

Made some progress tonight. Put in a fresh battery, turned the key and... nothing. Pulled the ignition switch and cleaned the contacts and got the motor to spin. Surprised my first guess was right. Added some fresh gas and turned. She spins and spins but doesn't start. Stuck a spark plug on the lead and grounded the electrode to the negative terminal of the battery with a jumper. Very intermittent weak spark. Not even sure how these make spark since there's no coil. Must be a magneto ignition? Its a Kohler K181S 8 HP.

You said in the post no coil, but the H does show standard coil and condensor Kohler setup. The other 110 shows the magneto style system. Hope this helps!

Well, there's definitely no coil. Looks like the 110/112 diagram (thanks PA318Guy :fing32:) I pulled the engine cover and in the process excavated the condenser and points. The points are right around where they are on my 214. Only on this beast it looks like I have to pull the muffler to get to them :banghead3 A project for tomorrow. Also seems odd that when I pull the plug its not wet. I verified that there is fuel at the carb inlet and blew starter fluid into the intake and still got nada for the engine firing so I'm guessing/hoping either the points and/or condenser are the problem. Seems like they made the magneto to be a non-serviceable item. Maybe this is the uber-rare 110H with magneto ignition...
