  1. Cracking job, what colour did you go for? Mine is at the very early stages, just ordered the primer and throwing stuff in the electrolysis tank!
  2. Right thanks ill give it a go, dont worry ive sorted the switch now
  3. This video says it needs the flywheel re magnetizing. My engine is 170707 briggs 8hp
  4. Really? I would be quite happy to convert it if i could. Ive seen the youtube videos ect and it looks easy enough to do.
  5. All ive done today (other than kill my horse) is read. Your right i wired 12v to the kill switch like a massive plonker! Cant convert to electronic ignition without having the flywheel magnets re polorised so its flywheel off and new coil time. All i wanted to do was cut lawn make a short vid and sell it to fund ibiza 😂 Pollock
  6. Afternoon Bit of an issue with my b111 mower. It wouldnt start at all so i charged battery and no use so last weekend i fault found an earth issue i think between the solenoid and tower. Everything was cleaned up wd40'd and it turned over. Today it wouldnt stop turning over even with the switch disconnected so i thought short circuit. Got loom out and it works well. BUT 5 seconds after i shut off ready to look at carb (wouldnt start) i get smoke from the flywheel and it looks like my coil has burnt out! Whats caused this and can i use a generic chinese ebay coil. Its a 8hp briggs. Thanks
  7. Does anyone have one kicking around, the one I have is holed quite badly with rust. Picture for example of what I'm after. It's for a c141 Cheers Rob
  8. Thanks mate much appreciated, they look bomb proof
  9. Sorry for resurecting this but do you have any of these hitches for sale or any drawings? I've got a slot hitch plough coming and looking at options. If I go clevis I'll have to buy the hitch and then convert the plough. Thanks thought it's worth an ask.
  10. These little tractors look ace, I would love to find one some day. I'll enjoy following this! Ah I didn't realise this was you Ewan lol
  11. Good God what a good thread Mark! You make it look effortless lol. Love the 3 point solution although you didn't have a gearbox or tank to contend with. Fantastic 👏
  12. Thanks I'll have a look this evening mate. I've seen some kits on eBay and wondered it they could be used https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F311531407571
  13. This is great, did it work well and could some think like this work on a C series WH?
  14. Thanks for that, I've used meetens and the chap was great!
  15. That's sad sending condolences. They are funny little dogs, my wife had one until last year. It was subborn as a mule and never could be off the lead the scruffy swine. He was ace though.
