The battery was 4 years old. It was junk. I'm headed out to grab a new one.
I know on some vehicles I've owned, even when a good external 12v source was hooked to a truly "bad" battery(not simply discharged) that some of the systems would not power up.
All wires were attached as specified so no issues there...
As with a previous poster, I'm betting just the new battery will cure it.
Now, for the clutch.
The plastic rollers are broken. The rest of the clutch doesn't look too bad. How difficult is it to replace them? I have the clutch off and it appears that it's not too difficult, just need a small punch to get the pins out. In the manual I downloaded it states that I can simply use a roll of duct tape to set it on while doing the work...sound right or does anyone have a better more secure method?
Oh...Plugs. I know in my other small engines, NGK are the way to go. What say the jury? What's the popular brand/P/N? I haven't pulled them, however I like to replace that sort of thing(along with the fuel filter) so I know for sure how many miles I have on them.
You guys have been a great help so far...TIA!
