I wonder if the starting circuit stayed engaged. I had a Simplicity do that and fried the s/g in 2 hours.

A man can never have too many tractors!!

Welcome to the forum!

You didn't mention anything about the voltage regulator.
What king of voltage is it throwing out?

And they should have been able to tell you the first time, WHY it wasn't generating.

Hello, i have a 127, have had it for 20 years now and it has run great. had to have the generator rebuilt 2-3 years ago and it 'went' this past spring. Had it rebuilt, and two months later it was not generating. When i brought it in to the tractor repair shop (great people) they stated that the generator essentially had overheated and literally melted. they have not been able to find the problem. the harness is relatively new, new solenoid, starter switch. does anyone have any ideas what might be wrong. thanks

Wyatt... I guess I can try one , I've heard some people like them or they don't. I'm not putting a heavier spring on it . That Wheatland was nice.

Here's our future snow blade operator @ 18mos.
May not be on the 126 though, at least not yet!
I think they both will relegated to observing for a few seasons yet!

I'd like to see some pics of that.

With today's technology, do we really need daylight savings time?

Driveshaft assembly-
When I built the Wheatland I bypassed all the fuss compressing the spring: take a McMaster 61005K133 coupling backing up the spring (lots of surface area there, it won't slip) and a face-mount shaft collar like McMaster 9677T23. You can use the two holes in the collar to compress the spring and the coupling.

In fact you can leave the collar on the shaft and use it to adjust spring tension after the driveline is installed.

No need to endanger your fingers or send an assembly across the shop, bolt in and go.

I know a vise works good, I've done 3 or 4 like that. Especially when the roll pins and driveshaft is rusted together and need cut off. Its not something that I need , more like a want. Probably will use the grade 8 hardware , even though its a little over kill . Its what I have sitting around the garage.
