Re: Starter wiring g174
Incidentally, even though I'd rather have a diesel sit than a gasoline engine I just had a gasoline engine that sat for 15 years w/o running. There was old gas in the tank, I added a couple of cups of new fuel to it and somehow it started and ran good after the third pull! I also had a snowblower that only sat one summer with fuel and the carb was so gummed up in the fall I had to remove the float needle with pliers to bust it free. So I guess it depends a lot on the design of the system and probably the fuel quality. In any case, I'd rather deal with a fuel injected engine rather than carbureted and one that burns a less volatile fuel like diesel over gasoline.
Remember too, that you *should* be able to pull start the tractor (gear drive models for sure, not sure about hydros) in a pinch if you have to to get it running. Of course, you'll need a competent assistant for help. I haven't tried this yet, but I'm sure it's coming for me someday. I'm thinking 5th or 6th gear would be a good starting point being pulled about 3-4 mph.One nice thing about being average is you're not alone.
