    #9 might just be a version of the WaterMagnet we've heard so much about ?

    Guess I stumped you guys...
    It can be tough trying to figure out what someone was thinking when they improvised.
    Especially when you dont know what problem they were trying to work around.

    WhiteGardens...Yes that is an old TV antenna alligator clip...good eye..
    JoeBilly...no #9 is not a WaterMagnet ...The WaterMagnet has 3 wires going to it,,,
    #9 is just a sparkplug I insulated because I got tired of catching pushmowers on fire.
    About once a year I would get a mower flooded so bad that when I pulled the rope to clear the cylinder...it would spark and ignite the fuel and catch the engine on fire.

    #5 is a hydro pulley removal tool..when you get the clutch off the crankshaft and the hydro pulley wont come off..you bolt this combination of a clutch bushing and an Exmark spindle bushing to the crank..this keeps the airhammer from jumping off the crankbolt while reaching under the mower and bumping the shaft.

    Finally 55 degrees in central Fl...grass stopped growing..Santa Claus is coming....

    This is a great idea ! Especially when you are all twisted up under a machine.

    Here in NJ, 50 degrees and Sandy is coming :dizzy:

    Man, I don't even own an air hammer, let alone use one on a crank!

    If the magnets come loose from a few bumps of the air hammer, they were probably coming loose anyway.
    The air hammer can save or make you a lot of work. Depends on the operator.

    Just use a smaller air hammer bit that will go through a 1/2" drive socket. Put the socket on the bolt and do it that way. Its good for removing clutches that are stuck on then too.

    Im not so sure on your alligator clip thing #2. You should really have the stator disconnected from the regulator when testing its output.
