Hi mate, i am going to assume you have checked the globes :) other then that below is the manual, there appears to be a note on the wiring diagram about the headlights see below:
NOTE YOUR TRACTOR IS EQUIPPED WITH A SPECIAL ALTERNATOR SYSTEM. THE LIGHTS ARE NOT CONNECTED TO THE BATTERY, BUT HAVE THEIR OWN ELECTRICAL SOURCE. BECAUSE OF THIS, THE BRIGHTNESS OF THE LIGHTS WILL CHANGE WITH ENGINE SPEED. AT IDLE THE LIGHTS WILL DIM. AS THE ENGINE IS SPEEDED UP, THE LIGHTS WILL BECOME THEIR BRIGHTEST.
basically the lights run directly off the alternator with a switch in between,



before you proceed : if you know how to test power and earth wires with a test light then i would look at the attached diagram, if your not familiar with test lights and testing for power and earth then i would call a mate who can help

with the mower running i would use a simple light tester ( one that just lights up when there voltage) test and see if there is power to power side of the light bulb socket when the switch is on ( the red wire), if theirs no power at the light bulb socket then try the same test on each terminal of the headlight switch

if there is power at the light bulb socket - then check the earth wire is connected ( the back wire connecting to the light bulb socket) or replace the bulbs :) if not proceed to test the switch below

if there is power one one side of the switch but its not going to the bulbs - replace the switch, or ensure the wire that goes from the switch to the bulb is connected as there is a joiner in between that could be unplugged or corroded

if there is now power to the switch or the bulb at all then your alternator my be faulty and not providing power to the bulbs, your mower could just be running and starting off the remaining charge in the battery as the lights dont connect to the battery they will not function even if the battery is charged

see below for link to the manual with wire diagram

How to install a solenoid on a Poulan pb1638lt


the starter switch is the correct answer the starter switch allows a current to flow to the remote wire which is the wire that tells to solenoid to allow voltage to the starter on some systems may require a jumper wire that connects the two small lugs but i don't believe this is required for your application

The problem the pull rope on a Homelite blower UT08934D doesn;t always retract. While working on it i found that the rotor was loose on the shift. I tighten the nut but didn't seem go all the way...


The Homelite/Poulan starter mechanism is of poor engineering and design. Problems with them are constant in the industry. They seem to work sporadically at best. If you have taken it apart, you have seen the inferior workmanship. Granted, all metal construction would wear also, but would be more heavier-duty and last longer. Another reason (the main one) why they don't last if from working the starter/recoil unit so much because the engine won't start. And when it doesn't, 9 times out of 10, it is a fuel system (carburetor) problem. Pulling on the wimpy unit 50 times so it can start once greatly reduces it's life expectancy, and overuse is the main reason they fail.

My gauges just stop working,and they are frozen in one spot,the temp gauge still moves a little but not like its supposed to.and the dummy lights wont work but the turn signal lights work,also the light...


The gauges have a memory. They will stay where the last read was when you turn the key off and don't move until you turn the key back on. If something happened between the time you turned the key off and back on then they could be stuck in that last position.
Sounds like you may have a ground issue. The cluster uses a common ground. Maybe start by checking the ground wire under the dash that uses one of its mounting bolts in the corner.

How to remove clutch on Poulan Pro PPB350 gas trimmer


Poulan makes a tool, part # 530031112, with two prongs that fit the grooves on the sides of the clutch. It fits most Poulan saws and trimmers made in at least the last decade. I use a butterfly impact and 3/4 impact socket and turn CLOCKWISE to remove. There should by an arrow and the word off stamped on the clutch This is the tool... That should work for you.
