Question about John Deere Garden
IT STARTED AND SPIT AND SPUTTERED AND CLEARED UP AND THEN WE SHUT IT OFF TO PUT ON THE BLADE AND WHEEL WEIGHTS AND CHAINS AND HASNT STARTED SINCE.... REPLACED PLUGS AND POINTS AND COIL WITH NO LUCK AT STARTING.....
Go back and double check all your work,,, make sure nothing was disconnected, or damaged.... Put in old plugs to verify new plugs...aren't faulty. Drain old gas from tank and carb completely! Water doesn't combust!!! Drain drain drain! No addictive a, no make shift remedies... Just drain tank and put fresh fuel. 1. Check spark plugs for fuel, making sure fuel is making its way to the cylinder to the plug. If not check fuel fiter, fuel lines and pump... If so... Step 2. 2. Check for spark, with a spark tester, just cause you see spark doesn't mean you have enough... If not, clean up and sand down all points ends, if there new there is a layer of grease/ wax that will stop the gap on the points from making a spark. Also there might be an ignition modual on your tractor that controls all the electrical circuits, (under the battery tray.. Black box). 3. Make sure pto switch, lights and other switches are off and safety switch are NOT by-passed, if so it will cut the power to the ignition modual and engine.

We will be testing for voltage to the points, coil, engine to tractor wiring harness, ignition switch
volt meter to read 12 volts, or test light
1) with the points open: is there voltage at the connection wire at the points
If yes; adjust points to .020" and try to crank engine and check for spark
*** you may want to determine if condensor is connected to this wire also
2) check point side (neg or - ) of coil for voltage
if yes, engine should start
3) check for voltage at the + side of coil
If yes, coil is bad
4) check wire connector from engine to frame wiring harness
if yes; engine should start
5) check wiring on the back of ignition switch
if yes; engine should start
6) check that ignition switch RED or BATTERY supply wire has voltage
if yes; switch is bad
7) check supply wire and circuit breaker connected to the battery side of the solenoid
if yes; engine should start
if no; circuit breaker could be at fault or wire connector at battery supply

ok, since you have the points, I assume you have the B43g Onan
engine. Was it running before the new parts were installed?
Check your point gap and make sure it is .016, plugs ahould be gapped at .025 Make sure your plug wires are good too. Should be somewhere between 0 and 10,000 ohms per foot, when measured with an ohmmeter. Once everything is rechecked for gap distance, make sure there is no spark by pulling plug out, leaving wire on and ground the outside of plug to the chassis of the tractor.
Crank over and look for the spark. Coils are about $100, so you want to eliminate everything else first.
Diagnosing a points ignition for no spark is really simple. Do you have 12V at the coil? Do you get a spark when you connect and disconnect the negative terminal of the coil to ground? If not you have a bad coil.

My name is Dane and I'll try to help you with your problem. I have given you the basic instructions here for mounting most john deere snow blades.
Here is a link to the parts diagram for the blade too.
You need to remove the mower deck from the machine, and you may have to remove the front bumper as well.
First, install the mounting brackets on the tractor. Align the holes in each mounting bracket with the holes in the tractor frame. Install using the kit that comes with the mounting bracket. Don't tighten this yet.
Next you should install the pivot support. Insert the pins on the right and left hitch plates into the notches on the mounting brackets. Install the pins and tighten the screws on those mounting brackets now.
Next you should Install the blade. Align the holes in the pivot support with the second holes from the end of the push channel assembly. Insert the channel pin and washer and secure with the spring locking pin.
Install the lift handle. Slide the lift handle rod into the end hole in the push channel assembly. Insert the lift link pin in the pivot support bracket into the lift handle rod. Add the washers and locking pin.
Now, Iistall the blade pivot rod. Either end of the blade pivot rod goes through the blade pivot shaft. The other end goes through the lift handle tube. Secure both ends with locking pins.
Lubricate the lift handle rods and pivot points.
Install the rear tire chains and wheel weights.
I hope I've helped. If you found this information useful, please leave feedback as deserved. Thanks! Dane
