    This is a 2010 gasoline farm tractor - I was talking to some guys at work and they think it could be that the timming gear may be shot - you supose that would be a place to start?

The timing gear is made from material which will break if the gears are not meshed correctly, if the distrubiter has come loose at some time, this can chew out the timing gear and leads to all sorts of problems (ie correct timing)

I have a John Deere 116 lawn tractor . wont turn over after running for a while then shut off


It is possible, but does the engine crank at all? If the engine doesn't crank at all it is a switch, and can be either the seat switch or the brake switch. If it cranks over but will not start it can be either fuel or spark issue. The easiest way to check for the seat switch is to unplug the switch and insert a jumper wire between the terminals on the harness end of the plug. The seat switch is just a continuity switch so it can be easily bypassed. The brake switch however isnt as easy to test. Start with the seat switch and let me know how it goes, Daniel.

Where can I get a new carb four 2010 john deere not rebuild .will not start when worm.


You should be able to get a new carb from any john Deere dealer.You may want to check the tractor for fire when it's warm,you may have a coil breaking down when warm due to the oil has leaked out over the years.I would check to see if you have spark or not before buying a new carb.

Possible starter problem?


Check the ring gear that it meshes with as it may have damaged teeth!
Turn it a full 360 degrees & check all the teeth!as when they are turned off they often stop in the same area due to motor ballance thus wearing out teeth in one area!

My John Deere 2010 tractors lift does not work. I am note sure of the oil level. What is the correct procedure? Where can I get a free service manual to download?


Here is a link to the John Deere web site for the manuals.

Also,
The hydraulics on a 2010 are part of the transmission oil system. There is a bolt looking plug on the right side of the transmission, about half way up, about where your feet rest when your foot is not on the brake. Fill up the transmission until the oil is level with the top of the hole and is about to run out. Using HyGuard hydraulic/transmission oil or one that meets the same spec for the 2010.
