SOURCE: JOHN DEERE 318 LAWN TRACTOR WONT START

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.

Check the coil impedance on the primary and secondary side. You'll have to disconnect the battery negative cable so you don't short something out. Unplug the spark plug wires and the two sets of smaller wires connected to the primary side of the coil. The primary coil reading should be between 3.7 ohms and 4.6 ohms while the secondary (spark plug side) should be between 34.2 k-ohms and 41.6 k-ohms. If the resistance values you measure are outside of these ranges, you need to replace the coil.

SOURCE: I have a lx 255 john deere wont start

You have a defective ignation coil. When the engine gets hot, the winding in the coil opens and the engine stops. After it cools down, it will again make contact and start again. If you don't know where the coil is, follow the wire from the spark plug. The spark plug wire is attached to the coil from the factory. It's easy to replace with a 1/4 inch socket set. Set the magnet to coil gap with a standard business card.

SOURCE: I need a drive belt diagram for a 1974 john deere

I don't have a diagram but it shouldn't be to hard. You will have to drop the deck. Then when installing the new belt remember to always place the inside of the belt (V) into the pulleys and the outside of the belt (flat side) up against the larger idler pulley. When you have the belt on properly it should be snug. If you have excessive play you need to try a different routing around the idler.

Good luck and let me know if this helps.
Thanks

I have JD 214 that I've replace coil, points spark plug,wire yet still getting no spark the mower just quit run inspection I found that the points was burnt and plastic where power attached was melted


Wow, a tractor with points. That's rare these days. I believe your tractor was made between 1975 and 1987. It's a 200 series. Does it have the 14 hp Kohler?

Not sure about your problem. On a modern day tractor with electronic ignition, I would check the safety switch system. In your case, I would check the fuse, key switch, and look at the kill wire running off the coils to see if there is worn insulation. If you have seat safety or PTO switches check them too.

Why is my John Deere L110 17 1/2 firing but not starting. It pops like a gun shot


this could be a engine timing problem this model should have a 17.5 hp kohler engine , now kohler's are now famous for having coil problems cus of overheating it and the other cause could be if you reciently shocked this engine hard (Heavy load) sometimes the flywheel pully (iron thing on top) comes loose or you shear the keyway on shaft anyways ck out my youtube video on easy way to change kohler coil for help doing this (all you need is 6 mm wrench , two hands and a playing card)

I have a 214 kohler engine john deere lawn tractor, what point wires go to hot and the ground


if that is the Kohler 14 hp motor it may have the spark control untit on the motor cover. I recently ran into one like that and switched the coil out from a blown 20 hp kohler engine. I just taped up the excess wires and made sure they were not near any moving parts. The mower ran fine after that. Kohler wants about $160.00 for a spark control unit. There have been no repercussions since making the switch.

John deer 110 got spark at points but no spark at plug


If this is a Kohler engine make certain that you have replaced both the points and the condenser with new parts. You should not see sparking at the points if they are installed and adjusted correctly. For Kohler, the correct point gap should be about .020 inches - use a gauge. Don't assume that your spark plug is good - replace. While the number of spark plug failures is few I have had it happen.
