    Robin 22hp EH65 Coil Setting

    On the coil gap I suggest having two sets of feeler gauges. It made it a lot easier to keep the gap even. So put one set of gauges near each end of the coil.

    422 fan thermostat / fuse

    I wonder if that would slow down warmup in cold weather. That’s why I have not done it. I have replaced the thermostat twice in 22 years.

    PT-425 Run-on

    It does sound like a missing ground. There is a ground on the key switch. Check to make sure it is good.

    Do the lights actually work when they are turned on?

    Well i broke it this time

    I welded mine back together before it broke. That was many years ago. You could add extra bracing.

    Wanted - PT-425 or PT-1430 in good condition

    Ok. Thanks. I guess I figured they would change the name to a 430, since it is gasoline. I could see why they kept 1430 since the attachments from the Diesel version work on the gasoline version.

    I thought the 1430 had been discontinued.

    I would connect it to the engine. Small amount of resistance counts when powering a starter motor. I am only an electrical engineer, but do have experience with starters.

    Pocket Gopher Control

    Use exhaust from a lawnmower engine with the choke 1/2 closed. I have not tried this, but it should work.

    2015-2017 PT-425 Battery

    I keep a battery maintainer charger on my PT 422. I connect it whenever I am not running it. For vehicles that sit a lot it is a good idea. Also if you are running more that the built in charging circuit will deliver then this will top it off.
