SOURCE: I have a JD F935 front deck mower the blades will engage but will not lock in the engaged position, girl friend was using it and a large chunk of wood

You might have to replace the blades. They could have been damaged.

I have a John deereL130, deck rusted so I got one from a JD L100 it has a manual pto lever to engage, but my L130 is electric mounted easily,do I need to add tensioners to deck for it to work

On the electric clutch method the belt from the engine pulley to the deck pulley is tight all the time, yes it normally has a idler pulley with a spring to keep it tight. The spring is needed so do not omit it and lock it solid or it will shake itself apart. Hopefully you can copy your L130 deck as well as use the idler and spring from it.

How do i get pto cluch to engage

If this has a lever activiated PTO make sure it is engaged all the way- and the fluid level is good; if it is electrically activated, check that you have power to the switch. If now power at switch- check fuses- if theer is power at switch, the switch is bad.

JD Model LX178, 1996 Model year. Engine runs but mower deck will not engage? (worked ok yesterday)

It could be a few things:

1. Check the belt that drives the blades; it could be broken or slipping.
2. Make sure the PTO Switch/Lever is working properly. The cable could be broken, or the spring that sometimes help to engage the blade could be broken.
3. There may also be a large stick lodged in the belt that drives the blades.

Good Luck!

Engaging the blades / PTO

There is either a yellow toggle switch or a yellow knob type switch on the dash panel that will engage your deck unless some of the safety switches are stopping it from working due to an adjustment problem or a defective switch,let me know if you need more help.

PTO Tension JD 155C

Look between top of deck and bottom of machine for a rod coming from the rear topside of deck and going up to bottom of machine.Where it connects to machine there is a small pin you must pull to disconnect it.Once done loosen locknut and turn collar in,away from nut,3 or 4 turns to give PTO lever more pull.Tighten locknut,put rod/collar up and over crossbar and into hole it came out of,install pin.You may need to move PTO lever as if you were going to engage blades to help collar line up with hole.
