SOURCE: need owner's and service manuals for John Deere Model 317/

First off, Mowerman's response was incorrect about the age of a JD 317.  They were made from 1979 to 1982.
You can only get manuals either through here:  or from a dealer.  They're expensive.  You can find them on ebay and also here: but I haven't used that site.

SOURCE: John Deere 445 Garden Tractor, starts immediately,

could be bad gas, but it sounds like a choke problem. did it sit over the winter with less than a half tank of gas in it. try putting some rubbing alcohol in the fuel or draining the tank and disconnecting the gas line so you can drain the gas out of the carb. also check the gap of the spark plug and make sure that is correct. when was the last time there was fresh oil put in. also check the air filter, it could be full of dirt.

Please check for the anti back fire solenoid in the front of the carb. Check whether the wiring to it is fine and if it is getting +12 V. If yes then you maybe required to replace the solenod.
However, if this doesn't resolve the issue then you would need to adjust manually so that decompresser works normally. Inspect the flywheel key as well, it may have sheared.

Check the carb filter and the make sure there is no sign of water in/around the carbeurater. Hope this helps... If it does please do not forget to accept the solution or post back for assistance.

1010 John Deere tractor shuts down after temp gauge goes half way to hot

Sounds like the temperature gauge or temperature sensor is faulty and giving a wrong reading. Too high of an engine temperature will shut that engine down. Check the temperature with a temp gun if you can get one to see how hot it is before it shuts down. Aim it at the coolant line or the engine block. Or take the temperature sensor out and check it by putting it in a pot full of hot water with a temperature gauge and boil the water to see how high the temperature gets before the sensor closes or opens. Use an ohm meter across the sensor terminals to know when it's either opened or closed. Some of these are set up to operate in either open or close mode.

I have a 2000 John Deere 990. The fuel gauge and temp gauge only work part time but always together.Any ideas?

I have owned a 990 since new. 2001. The fuel gauge started to act similar to what you described for a few years. Recently the temp gauge was also doing the same thing. I finally decided to chase the problem. Bought a PDF file of John Deere manual. The fuel and temp gauges share a common ground. I tool the hood and panels off that allow getting behind the instrument panel. ps, you don't need to pull the steering wheel. NOTE, disconnect the battery before you dive into it. I disconnected and cleaned ALL of the plug connectors with spray contact cleaner. Put it back together. The fuel gauge comes to life instantly. The temp is slow, but that looked normal, and worked. Then today the temp stopped working mid way thru an hour of using the tractor. After a palm slap to the side of the instrument panel the temp gauge instantly came to life. So there is also a issue with the gauge itself. I am going to assume that the gauge needle is stuck. so maybe some cleaner and lube in the gauge itself will solve the second half of the problem.

John Deere 445. I would like someone who knows about this tractor answer the question as to why after replacing the camshaft why the motor backfires through the carb. If you read through all of my...

Of the 100+ camshaft replacements that I personly have done on the 425/445 and John Deere Gators I have come across 3 that backfired when completing the replacement.2 were do to bent valves coming in contact with the piston after gear failed and 1 was from a sheared flywheel key.The only other time I had this same injected engine backfire was on a John Deere gator 620i that had a faulty computer and fired @ 90 derees off.Do a compresion check and that will help out alot.

How do I change the temp gauge on a john deere 6400

The temperature gauge is built into the instrument cluster and it needs to be changed as a unit.Try removing the wire from the temperature sensor and ground it to the frame of the tractor to verify that you do need the instrument cluster replaced,ground that wire will drive the gauge to hot if the gauge is good and nothing will change if it is defective.If grounding the wire made it work then you need a temperature sensor.Good luck and let me know how you make out!
