Been there. Felt my face turn red when I figured out what I was doing wrong. Even though no one was there but me.Ever feel like you started on the wrong end of a problem, and the last and easiest thing to get to fixed the problem? After banging my head over the electrical issue I found the key has two run positions. I was testing everything in the run/lights position. When actually trying to start the machine I would go to the start, and return to the run/only position. I tested this and sure enough I had no voltage in the run/only position. I sprayed contact cleaner into the switch connector and everything works now. I should have the gas tank installed this weekend and do a live start on it then.
This is after pulling the regulator and testing it, and tracing every wire down, problem was I was using the run/lights position.
Flat tires, one of my pet peeves. I just want to jump on the tractor and go, but slow leaks turn any job into an extra 20 minutes just to get moving.Tug duty today for the GS6500, after airing up all of the tires.
Cleaned up some firewood stacking areas with the smaller Trac Vac (pulled old pallets, cleaned up leaves under them).
Moved on to splitting, stacking and bucking more wood. Yes, in that order (had a half cart load to split and stack before bucking more). Didn't take enough pics, but here's one before I started bucking. Got through maybe a third to a half of the pile, stopped when the cart was full and the sun was setting.
