    Robin 22hp EH65 Coil Setting

    No points or condenser I am pretty sure.

    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.

    PT-425 Run-on

    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.

    NEW 22 HP ROBIN ENGINE

    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.

    A few more pictures. I have added a wooden handle, but the block size should be the same

    PT Manual

    I am using 15w50 Mobil 1 in my 2000 PT 422. My garage rarely get below 60 F, so starting is not a problem. The PT does have more wheel motor torque when hot than the original 5w30. I think the 5w50 Mobil 1 would be a good choice. I may switch to that if I can get it easily.

    Why do tractors never break down in the shop

    It is a memory affect. If it breaks down in an inconvenient location you are more likely to remember it and report it on TractorByNet.

    Money where my mouth is.

    I have the grapple and 4 in 1 buckets and love them both. The light material bucket I mostly use for fire wood. I don’t regret having all three.

    Toy Power Trac for Six year old grandson

    He was right on the edge of reaching the pedals. He really enjoyed playing with the PT until I tried to micromanage him. Sometime I need to bring him down for a few days and introduce him to woodworking, PT driving, welding and blacksmithing and whatever else I can. Maybe at age 10 or 11. I...

    Toy Power Trac for Six year old grandson

    My grandson was driving my PT 422 this past weekend. He used the backhoe on Sunday and dug a trench. He lives about 100 miles away and does not get down here very often. I am looking for a toy version similar in function to the 422. Has anyone seen anything like that? He has a birthday in...

    PT 422 finish mower rear wheels damage turf

    I just remembered that one of the rear wheels has a broken flange on several inches of the perimeter. Maybe that is causing the problem. I have ordered two new rear tires. Thanks for everyone’s comments.

    PT 422 finish mower rear wheels damage turf

    I mowed again and got more clumps. My neighbor suggested I need a discharge chute. Any thoughts. I just realized one of my rear wheels is damaged. Maybe that is the problem. Here is a picture of a grass clump.

    425 Emergency Brake

    I added this parking brake device to keep the handle down. This has worked for the last 15 years or so. One of my best modifications. It is made of wood.

    PT 422 finish mower rear wheels damage turf

    My 422 finish mower is clumping my grass together. The clumps block the sun light and kill the grass. Would high lift blades help this. It has been wet for a year and this makes the clumping worse. What blade would you recommend?

    Hydraulic tank cap damaged by seat

    I put a new seat on my PT422 a couple of weeks ago. Soon after that the hydraulic tank cap was destroyed by the seat hitting it. I then angled the seat so the back was a little higher. So yesterday it got hit again. I talked to Terry at Power Trac to order a new cap. A customer told him that...

    Sold a Power Trac

    Has anyone here felt they actually influenced someone in a major way so that they soon bought a Power Trac? PT Has very little marketing, so I suspect that most of their sales come from owner actions. Things are kinda slow here, so I thought I would bring this up.

    PT 422 finish mower rear wheels damage turf

    Has anyone experienced the finish mower rear wheels damaging the grass on turns? Have you done anything about it? With all the rain we have had the ground is soft and the damage seems worse this year.

    422 Fertilizer Spreader

    I.just got the fertilizer spreader for my PT422. There is a bar with fingers that can be bolted to the spreader disc. It will stir what is in the hopper. When it is installed you can only partially close the bottom gate. I spread some pellitized lime without this device. So the question is when...

    Has anybody used their Power Trac to help deal with Hurricane Florence?

    We took down three big trees yesterday in preparation for Florence. I had hired a neighbor to do the work as the trees were near the power lines and the house. He is a professional, but would not accept money. His crew showed up and their tractor had a bad tire. I got the PT 422 out with the...

    PT422 Stump Grinder Improvements

    Everyone is thinking there is a way here to improve the stump grinder. Sorry I don稚 have one. I was using this at a friend痴 house today and he had a six foot diameter pine stump he wanted lower. I worked on it awhile and made little progress. I am hoping that someone has found a way to make...

    Replaced engine on my PT422

    I put a new Robin Subaru 22 horsepower engine in my PT422. I have an older PT year 2000 with pumps on both ends of the engine. The most difficult thing was cutting the drive shaft to the correct length. It seemed to be a hardened steel and my Sawsall would not touch it. I ended up using the...

    Anybody got a new 425 with a Kohler engine?

    I am curious how it starts in cold weather, how the power feels, and if it is fuel injected. Any other comments would also be appreciated.

    PT 422 hard to start

    I have been having more and more trouble getting my model year 2000 PT 422 started. It has about 1100 hours on it and is using a lot of oil. I adjusted the valve backlash and cleaned the plugs with starting fluid. They had a lot of oil on them, but were only six months old. I was able to get...

    PT422 using oil - Filter loose

    I went to change my oil filter yesterday and when I loosened it, no force was required from the oil filter wrench. I am hoping this was the cause of my high oil consumption. It was using abut 1/3 of a quart per hour. I have about 1100 hours on the Robin engine.
