Yep, as long as you have good ground on the dash tower to frame. I put 2 star washers on my 1512, was it necessary? or was it a waste of washers...
Replaced the ugly frame bolts for the lift cylinder.


Also replaced the engine lift hooks. The front one was bent. The rear was missing.


None. This is a very quiet and responsive transaxle, and most importantly leak free.
Thank you very much for your feedback I have another question regarding your glow plug replacement I looked it up online and it says it's a 10.5 volt glow plug if the engine is running on 12 volts wouldnt that cause them to wear out sooner by using too much voltage?
NGK Y-103V / 2031 are spec'ed for 10.5V. I'm not entirely sure if they will fail sooner, but I have had no issues with them for several months. I used what most have used when upgrading their tractors.
Those have been the suggested upgrade for like 15 years. I have never heard of anyone complaining about them failing early.
Thank you for the compliments. As for the overall condition, the paint, which for the most part is factory applied, is a 6/10 with some chips and scratches touched up. To be show worthy, it would need a high end paint job. I love it the way it is, and use it often without too much fretting if it gets dusty from mowing. It's a very nice driver condition machine.
It was time to address the hokey spring setup a previous owner rigged up that was used to put tension on the shut off lever.

After an exhaustive nationwide search, I was able to locate only one- NOS in the wrapper for only $17 shipped.


After about 30 minutes, I had it installed, and the levers working properly.


It eliminated an annoying noise.
