Mark,

You appear to be the man on this forum and I hope you can help me. I recently bought an lx277 with the Kawi 17hp. One of the coils was bad so I replaced it. It runs fine but I am a dumbass and can't figure out where one part goes. I took off the air cleaner, the guard on the top of the flywheel, and the engine top cover. The piece I sitting on my bench that has me baffled is a heavy gauge stamped sheet metal part that is about 1.5" long. It has a mild tear drop shape with two holes in it. It only appears that one of the holes had a bolt in it. On the top (narrowest end, it narrows to about 1/4" but that is offest to one side. I looked all through the explode parts views and cannot find the thing. I hope this rings a bell withyou and you can help.

Thanks,

Greg

Welcome to forum Greg. :)

Unfortunately I don't know what it could be either. You might checkout the exploded views at the link below. They are a little more detailed to what Deere has on their site for the engine.

Parts and Diagrams for Kawasaki Engines FH500V-BS09 4 Stroke Engine FH500V

Sounds like some sort of a guard or heat shield by the description.

Sometimes I think the manufactures just put in extra parts, nuts and bolts to play with our minds. :D Funny thing is though since I started taking digital photos to prove it while taking things apart I don't have that problem nearly as much. ;)

I have a John Deere GT242, purchased in 1993. In turning the key, there's absolutely no response. It simulates as if the gear-shift was not in neutral. I tried a new battery, but again, no results. It doesn't attempt to turnover at all.

Is the PTO on or the seat switch faulty/bypassed? Usually it means a safety switch is blocking when nothing happens. Roger

Here's an electrical diagram I found on the net for it. If you have a DC voltmeter the first thing to check would be if your getting the 12VDC out of the ignition switch to the starter solenoid in the start position. If you are getting the switched voltage to the solenoid it is either the solenoid or the starter itself causing the problem. If no 12VDC to the solenoid from the start switch then your back to a bad ignition switch, ignition relay or one of the safety switches. Also I see fuse F1 fusible link and F3 either of which could give a dead symptom. (Fuse F2 is for the headlights only.)

For 38" (39) 3- blade deck
John Deere# M40223 (Blade to Blade)
Belt, Drive 1/2" X 87.5"

For 38" 2- blade deck
John Deere# M82538 (Blade to Blade)
Belt, Drive 1/2" X 63.25"

You might want to try and verify these lengths using some string or rope. Gets kinds of confusing the way the 2- bladed deck is listed especially. They break it down to serial numbers but I believe that only effects the deck to engine belt length as they are covering several tractor models on one list.

Info on 2000 JD 425 60" deck

Recently bought a 2000 JD 425 w 60 in deck, 775 hrs. No manuals. Everything works well except the deck mowing height. Should mow at max height of 4 ins, only mow at a max of about 2.5 ins. Hoping the deck might need mounting adjustments, not sure. Does someone have a deck manual or instructions about adjust the deck? Help appreciated!

Greetings! Does anyone have any of john deere d125 accessories for sale? I suppose they can be quite expensive in shops, but probably any of you have them lying in your garages and you don't quite need them, I'll be able to buy them! So, guys, I'm waiting for you to write me back, if you have anything for sale!
