Question about John Deere Garden
There is two things that shut down the engine through the safety switches, 1 is it grounds the coil wires so it quiets firing the spark plugs, they are small flat spades on each of the coils under the flywheel shroud, unplugging the key switch should overcome that . The second thing is there is a wire that fastens to the bottom of the carb that opens a solenoid to allow fuel to the main jet, unplug it and put a jumper wire from the positive battery terminal to the wire on the carb and this will open it so it can run. Now touch the two big battery cable nuts on the starter solenoid together with a screw driver or metal pliers handles to turn the engine over and when it starts stop touching the terminal on the starter solenoid. To kill the engine unplug the hot wire to the fuel solenoid from the + battery terminal. If you can read wiring diagrams you can do this. Like you I want to hear it run before I put much time into it,
