    110 Restoration project needs help

    Recently acquired a 69 110 with k181s. I want to put it back to working order, but the magneto start system is causing some problems. I hope to get some good advice from this forum. Looks like if you guys know these machines front to back.

    Charlie,
    Can you be more descriptive as to what the problem actually is, or give more detail as to what the tractor is or isn't doing? That would go a long way in trying to help you resolve the issue...........Gary

    Thanks for the response Gary.
    I'm having trouble getting spark, so after setting the points, I removed the flywheel to check the coil and stator. Stator checks out and the coil appeared to be dead. so I replaced the coil (the small hold down wire popped off and I can't figure out how to reinstall it.). Now when I replace the flywheel something is rubbing and the flywheel has trouble turning. I have taken everything apart twice looking at wires and high spots on the stator. Still won't spin without dragging. I would like to find an illustration showing how the hold down wire goes on, nothing I see online shows that. That wire is there for a reason and that may be my problem.

    Flywheel key? Could be your source of rubbing. Inexpensive part. I would just replace it to eliminate any possibility it being the problem.

    Charlie,
    I wish I could help you with a photo of the little wire clip but I can't. I removed the clip on the last two K181's w/magneto that I worked on and I never even thought to take a pic in effort to try and help someone else. Just keep trying and you'll get it figured out.
    A few issues I had though are as follows: 1)-On one of my tractors I emoried the armature head areas of each stator winding to remove all rust and/or film. I also thoroughly cleaned each of the magnets. In doing this I found it necessary to re-seat the little tin guards around each to keep them from contacting the magnets as the flywheel rotated. 2)-As Gabby mentioned be absolutely sure the tapered bore of the flywheel and the tapered portion of the crankshaft are absolutely clean and the key is in it's proper position as you put the flywheel back on. 3)-Be sure all wiring to the coil is adequately tucked through to the engine side of the bearing plate. Especially if you spliced the wires to put in a new coil. I had to loosen my bearing plate to make this happen. 4)-On one of my tractors I had to replace the condenser to get it to fire and I also found the wire to the points had a bare spot in the area of the small rubber grommet that is employed in the points cover. 5)-On the other of my tractors I found that the wire coming from the mag system to the ignition switch that is intended to ground the mag system when you turn the key off was mis-connected to a place it kept the system grounded all the time, preventing the mag from providing the needed voltage for spark to the plug.

    I hope all this rambling helps you in some way.....................Gary H.

    Thanks Gary,
    That's a lot of great things I have not addressed. I will go over each suggestion as soon as I can get back on the project and let you know what I find.
