SOURCE: John Deere Gx75, kawasaki 9hp motor- oil in carb!

A very common problem with the GX series with Kawasaki engines. The carburetor 'inlet needle' sticks open and fills the crankcase with fuel. When checking the oil, it can be difficult to see the gasoline and the level appears to be OK. Remove the dipstick and smell the oil, you may detect a gasoline smell. Also, drain the oil, and you may find much more fluid than you expect.
The solution on newer mowers was to install an 'in-line' shut-off valve to keep the fuel from syphoning into the carburetor. The inlet needle and seat in the carburetor is NOT replaceable, so a new carburetor is the ultimate solution, but VERY expensive. Installing and using an in-line shut-off valve is more affordable.
Also, this situation is common when machine is transported on a trailer, as the bouncing causes the needle/seat to leak. When transporting, always turn off the fuel supply to the carburetor.

SOURCE: Starter solenoid on John Deere (Kawasaki) 17 hp engine

It hooks onto the fork.
NOTE: Remove the plunger from the solenoid.
Move the gear to position the fork as close to the solenoid plunger as possible.
Hook over the fork,
Re-insert plunger into solenoid
'a light film of grease could be applied to the plunger, but not TOO much'

SOURCE: My John Deere 345 dies for no apparent reason

You have dirt in the fuel tank and it sucks the dirt up on the filter that is attached to the pump. After the machine stalls, the dirt falls off and it will restart and run for a few min.

A,b,g Tractor Carburetor Float Dltx10: i had my john deere riding mower running then shut...


My John Deere only starts with a hammer. I have the Kawasaki engine and it is famous for bad starters, so I carry a hammer and tap on the bolt when I want to start it. So, you either have a bad solenoid in your starter, or the contacts are dirty, battery connections are dirty. Or the battery is dieing. Check it out. Hope this helps.

Cam shaft is not turning when i crank engine model 425 john deere


I'm guessing you have a 7-10 year old Kawasaki engine with the plastic cam gear, that is missing teeth.
Kawasaki has a service bulletin on this,they have changed to a steel gear. your Kawasaki or John Deere dealer will have that info.
