Does anyone have any experience rebuilding a S-12d from a 1250? I have one that I need to rebuild that smokes which I assume means burns oil. I have not heard it run, but I was told it was quiet. I have rebuilt other engines (TRA-10D, tecumsehs) but never a S-12d. Is there anything special about these engines? I have a Wisconsin book on it and it seems pretty straight forword. Thanks in advance for any advice,
Mark

Mark...

I changed rod bearings, piston rings, seals and honed cyl bore on
the S-12D in my 1250. I got the manual from Plano Power and
will post the manual if you need it. (I should post it anyway.)
As you said, these old single cyl engines are pretty straight foward
to work on. Everything is nice and BIG, easy to see how things go
together.

Thanks for the info. No need to post the book. I have a copy. I will let you all know how it turns out.
Thanks,

S12-D manual

hello,
I have the Instruction "Book and Parts List for the S-10D, S-12D and S-14D", but don't have a service manual.

If your book is a service manual for the S-12D, I would be interested if you post it.

Thank,
Jacques

Jacques..

Nice to see you posting again. I always enjoy your posts on the
Yahoo Bolens forums, seems like you are always trying to help
someone whenever you can.

Sorry, but the only manual I have on the S-12D is the one I posted
here on the forum. While it is not a pure service manual, it did have
enough information and illustrations to allow me to completely
disassemble and reassembly my S-12D. (71 pages)

I hope you will be spending more time here. We are a smaller
but enthusiastic group and would greatly benefit from some
exposure to your considerable knowledge and experience.

Jacques,
Send me an email. If the manual that is posted at the sticky sections doesn't help, I may have one that does.

Guys

I already posted pages from the service manual for the TR-10D, TRA-10D, TRA-12D, S-12D, and S-14D. These pages are here in the fourth spot down from the top as a sticky.

Mark,
Pardon me to not reply before, I forgot to go back to the forum before.

I already downloaded the manual you posted.

Thanks to let me know. I don't have real needs actually for more than I have, but always want to get the information before it become too scarce.

Jacques and Mark…

Do either of you have any manual that describes the correct
position of the dipstick when checking oil in the S-12D used
on the 1250. The dipstick on my 1250’s engine has a screw-on
cap and a blade to indicate oil level. The manuals I have seen
on the S-12D show a round rod inserted into the bottom of a
pipe plug. I realize you only place the plug against the hole in
the crankcase on the plug and rod type, but I have no manuals
showing the recommended placement of cap and blade type.

Sorry. Both my manuals show the same thing yours does. I would ask over at the YaHoo site for HT tractors. The fellow that runs it is pretty knowledgable.

service manual for TRA-10D

I have a TRA-10D to rebuild and would like to get a manual. My 11year old son and I just replaced head gasket on another one. Does anyone have one?
