Re: Honda Repower Problem for 1882

Can you put your hand over the carb to manually choke it? I'm not familiar with Hondas but a lot of the Kohlers had huge holes in the choke plate so people don't flood them in cold weather. If it has big holes maybe you can plug them somehow. Are you sure the carb is in good shape? Maybe there is a ...

Re: 982 info

Kevin, If the 982 has an aluminum rear you can swap the carrier and axle from it into the CI rear. Then the brake rotors will match the calipers and you will have the strongest combination of parts. The brake rotors and brackets are different from a CI to an aluminum rear. If you get axles from an e...

Re: 1872 where do I go from here?

I do agree that the commands are a good line of engines otherwise they wouldn't have been around for 15 plus years. And the lower fuel consumtion along with their narrower profile is why they replaced the Magnums. I'm sure emissions were an issue as well. But I won't be ready to give up my flathead ...

Re: 1872 where do I go from here?

David, Maybe your Magnum was getting tired. I worked with both models/engines when they were brand new and I tend to agree with Matt. When the commands first came out I wasn't real impressed that when you engaged the pto at wide open throttle the engine would stall. After the mower got loosened up t...

Re: Glad to be back!!!!

It would be nice if there was more than one week between the Eastern Pa (Danville) plowday and ours.

Just a thought for those of us who like to attend both.

Maybe mid may? I don't think we want it as late as we had at SAMA though.

Re: 1872 where do I go from here?

Vince,
All the cyclops models with the command engine used the bigger pto clutch pulley. If you use it you will have to change the pulley on the deck to match (if you are putting a deck on it).

There are several sellers on ebay with good prices on brand new starters.

Re: k301/k321 spark plug location

Matt, I don't think the difference is from the engine size. I think you are dealing two different vintages of heads. The early heads have the plug centered between the valves while the later ones have it over the exhaust valve. They are interchangable as long as you have the matching top baffle. The...

Re: 982 info

Kevin,
You may want to check the engine RPMs on the 982. The Onans are known to have governor problems. If it isn't turning 3600 rpms at full throttle that may be why it seems slow.

To put the standard GT rear in you will have to do a little mix & match to make it all work. I would start with an external brake unit and use all the 982 brake parts on it. You wil...

I forgot to mention that I don't need a big trailer (16' or longer) because I have a C-60 with an 18' flatbed for hauling big stuff.
I can haul 6 cubs or 2 Farmalls on it if need be.

I am looking at the Pequea trailers. The dealer where my Dad retired from sells them so I'm getting a price.

The Supers (including the 982) had different reduction gears to compensate for the taller tires. If you put a regular GT rear in it it will be faster.
