How do I change the spark plugs in a John Deere CR125 mower?

The best way to test for spark is to take off the wire to the spark plug, put the metal end of a screwdriver into the socket, hold the metal of the screwdriver about 1/8 inch or 3 mm away from a metal part of the engine, and crank the engine.

If you don't see a spark in the gap, the problem is in the ignition system, not the spark plug.

If you do see a spark in the gap, take the spark plug out, reattach the wire, touch the spark plug to the engine, crank it again to see if there's a spark in the spark plug. That will tell you if the spark plug is faulty.

Drain gas completely from tank to ensure no water is in the tank, check for spark with spark tester, if no spark shows with spark tester, re check gap on coil, if points & condenser are present, sand down the gap between the points to ensure a proper connection. Make sure to change fuel filter with a high quality John Deere fuel filter and use fresh fuel... Fuel can "go bad" after 1-3 months, if the tractor is/ left outside chances are there is water in the tank.

Need gas/oil mixture for a John Deere BC 1600 trimmer.

Some of the new machines have a 50:1 Mix ratio, but all of the older ones I've seen are 40:1 which is 3.2 oz oil/Gallon gas. The John Deere machines appear to be similar to the Homelites, just different brand names on them.
