No -- the magnets are what produce the spark as they pass the two ends of the coil

    Bill, Those cast in magnets seldom if ever come loose. It more likely the OP is referring to the internal magnetic that operates the alternator which powers the PTO clutch, lights, and recharges the battery. It will not operate long as the 5-7 normal drain by the PTO will kill the battery charge in a short time.

Need diagram to replace belt on manual trans john deere 265

See if this is even remotely close to your mower deck:

Also see if you can locate the mower deck model number i.e STX 38, STX 42 (Deck color Black or Yellow?) Should be a silver decal with black lettering. Also... there is supposed to be a belt routing diagram on the mower deck. (Another silver decal with the belt routing picture)

How do I find the model or year on 38" John Deere with no hood?

A ten year old mower that probably cost about $1500.00 at least twn years ago that has not been taken care of is not worth much.

John Deere is a good name as in Kohler. How much is it worth? It is currently worth what you paid for it, you just made it worth that much.
