How do I bypass the safety switches on a scott 1742 built by john deer

Bypassing the safety switches are not recommended. If you do not know how to replace a safety switch you would probably do more damage to the unit or yourself and for that reason I will not tell you how to bypass the switches. Please replace the safety switches.

Why does my scott lawn tractor s1642 stop running after about 5 minutes?

Check your fuel cap. If it has a vent that isn't working, the fuel tank will build up pressure because no air can get into the tank and will then prevent fuel from getting out to the engine. You may need to replace the fuel cap. If so, you can get one at

I need to see a belt routing diagram for a Scotts Mower

This is for a Scotts 1642. Picture yourself sitting on the mower looking down at the deck. Starting at the tractor pulley, the belt runs from the right side of this pulley to the left side of the tension arm pulley, around this pulley to the left side of the right hand side mower blade pulley, around this pulley, across the deck to the smaller left hand side idler pulley, then up to the left hand side mower blade pulley, around this pulley to the second (larger) idler pulley, around this pulley and back to the left side of the tractor pulley. If you make a small sketch of the deck pulley arrangement it will be easier. Keep in mind some of the pulleys are for the "V" side of the belt and some (The tension arm pulley & larger idler pulley) are for the flat side of the belt. Be sure the belt is not twisted and lays in a continuous circle with the "V" side of the belt on the inside before you start.
