Won't the dealer sell you one? The remote start box is pretty simple, if you could borrow one for a few days, you copy and build one.

The detend on the lift spool is probably rusted up. If you hold the petal, does it go into float, but doesn't lock in? Or does the pedal not go far enough to get to float at all?

I'm leaning towards a plugged fuel filter or the fuel pick up tube fell off. Could be bad solenoid, but with what you are saying, it is not the first place I'd look.

Between what you said your code is and what the solenoid is doing, that is your problem. Start simple and check the fuse for it. Check the wiring going to the solenoid for rubs and if all looks fine, replace the solenoid.

You have no cable, that is what the solenoid is for. If the you have fuel, but it is not getting to anything, first I'd pull the line of the fuel transfer pump and run it into a bucket. Have somebody crank the engine over while you watch fuel flow. The pump isn't high flow or pressure, but it should push a decent amount of fuel out. If that looks OK, then it could be the fuel rack sticking. That is internal in the pump housing.

Re: trying to identify a bobcat 11/21/2014 4:22:55 PM   (Total replies: 0)
Go to and go to the online part catalog. Each model is broken down by serial number. My guess is you have a 640 or 740 series. What engine and how many lug nuts does the machine have?

Pull engine and hydrostat out. Lift tank out. Little better then a day job to do.

I don't think it would be worth the trouble. I'd first find out where the leak is. Could be as simple as a leaking seal around the fuel sender, rubbed threw breather hose or a loose clamp on the filler hose. If the tank is cracked on top and you can get to it, I have had luck with tank patch kits.

The lifting bracket is not worth the time. I haven't used it years. I use a cherry picker to pull engines and hook the chain real tight.

Easiest to pull the whole she bang. Just pulling the engine is a pain. A lot of bolts that are hard to get at just pulling the engine.
