Tore into MULEII's engine today and cleaned the 5-year-old shmegma out of the carb. rigged up a test tank, and lit it. Started immediately, idled nicely, revved up pretty good too. Bonus!

Managed to bugger up my engine with the help of this group after posting pictures of my new starter and fly wheel no one pointed out that the ring drive was aluminum and would shred just that it need some adjustment . This is ridiculous as it could potentially cost me £200 if i cant find a replacement. Then to cap it all I post pictures of the gears mashed and some idiot laughs . So far I am not finding this site very helpful in fact it is helping me destroy my mower :-(

I took the ring gear off in the hope of finding a replacement and noticed one of the magnets was loose . Now i dont know how to fix this either. I am UK based so parts are hard to source

If the magnet is still in good condition, clean it and the flywheel surface very well with a strong solvent such as Acetone, and glue it back on with a good 2-part epoxy adhesive.

Have used some expensive glue to stick it. It sits nice and snug in its old location so hopefully thats ok. have been to a mower shop and they recon they have a new bendix and aluminum gear that will match and solve the problem I hope to pick it p next week thanks Doc

Sorry to see / hear about your flywheel situation.

I understand you are upset, man, but just understand that there are a lot of inexperienced people on here, and not all of the experienced people can be on, reading everything, all the time.

As for someone laughing at your expense, I believe the author was laughing at his own attempted wit, not your situation... it's easy to misunderstand someone's meaning. I recommend erring on the side of assuming people aren't intentionally scoffing at you.

Today? Today I joined the dark side, and locked my transaxle, as well as converting it to oil-lubed. Now when I get stuck, I'm in REALLY deep! lol!

Refitted starter and flywheel gear last week fires lovely now from key especially with car battery.

Took body work off today after cutting initial hole through the floor of the seat to see what was under it . Found a hole straight down to the pully. Bought a PTO adapter and a PTO Jocky Clutch wheel still need a gearbox with a fork and pulley and the rear bracketry to hold the PTO device on the back to make it all work. Have re-cut the access hole neater under the seat . have been looking for information regarding the rear PTO output hole on tractors as have to cut this into my body work . haven't had any feed back on sizes yet I have 6" x 13" back area to play with . If someone can give me some sizes that would be very helpful.



Tomorrow hope to look at rear section and get some idea of how i can cut it to make the exit for the pto belt and regain its strength. I am thinking of using small garden angle iron to go around the perimeter of the hole i cut so that the belt wont cut if it touches it. This also might make it stronger.

Today-

Having detected a growing oil leak, I tore the engine out of MULE. I found 4 sump bolts loose, and 2 missing completely!!! I don't know what the P.O. did to this engine, but he didn't own a torque wrench!

With the engine out, I grabbed a couple spare sump bolts and torqued everything to spec. Got it all back together and installed, and went for a celebratory romp. During said romp, I hurtled into a favorite mudhole. Broke thru the ice, and drilled the right front tire into the side of a deep rut. Blew the rod end apart, bent the heck out of the tie rod and steering arm. Look closely at the last pic. You can see the tie rod folded under the front left tire! Winched it out, cobbled the frontend back together enough to drive it back. I guess I have some repairs and upgrades in my future! Wrench, Wheel, Wreck, Repeat!

Nope. That's okay- breakage only serves to show where improvement is needed. My steering was still factory stock. It won't break again!

Last night I pulled the little 6hp B&S Quantum motor out of my Murray. Such a small motor, it's funny that people thought I had some monster motor in there since it went pretty fast. It's all in the gearing, my dear Watson.  Laughing
