Your starter may be nearing the end of its service life.

If it is worn down it may require more amperage than your battery can deliver to crank. That is why the extra battery helps. More amps!

You can start your tractor and check the wires to see if they are hot to the touch. That would be proof the starting system is drawing more amps. If it isnt hot then you might have connection problems or corrodes leads.

You can try replacing your battery wires to lower resistance and improve power transfer to the starter. Leads are cheap and available at most car parts stores.

How to adjust tension on belt of John Deere Ride On D140


How to adjusted Cutting Deck Belt Tension

You do not say which size cutting deck you have. I will be writing about the 48", 3 blade cutting deck

The belt on this deck is self tensioned. The tension is provided by a spring attached to a moveable pulley on the deck. When the belt is in place you can manually force this pulley forward/backward and it will release the tension.

If the belt is off track, place the belt back around all the pulleys in the correct path, lastly force this spring loaded pulley forward/backward (depending on your deck, the direction is not important, the tension is) to get the belt around the pulley. If the belt is placed correctly, when you release the spring loaded pulley it will properly tension the belt.

Typically, these belts should not be jumping off. If yours is coming off frequently the belt may be worn. When they wear they get quite a bit longer, then the tension pulley cannot apply the correct tension. Rarely does the tension spring have to be replaced.

The other problem that causes belt jumping is worn spindles and stationary pulleys. The spindles are the most likely to need replacement. You can buy excellent replacements for JD spindles on Amazon for very reasonable prices. The following spindles are super replacement spindles for the 48" deck. They may very well be the same for smaller and larger decks; I have not researched that. Just search Amazon for Silver Streak # 285851.

Peg pergo John Deere Gator goes for about 2 seconds then stops suddenly


it almost sounds like a thermal fuse, but these don't have a thermal fuse, so id say it might be a bad shifter switch

I have a John Deere stx30 that when I try to start it it just clicks. I use to be able to jump it and now it won't let me. Could someone please help me!!!


I'm assuming, since no one else even mentioned this, that you know without a doubt that the battery is good, and fully charged, yes?

My L130 will not turn right.


you will need to change the steering gear , and the steering pinion and its not a bad idea to change the gear pivots (2) and also the bottom steering wheel shaft bushing. they sell a complete kit on ebay that has it all in one nice n tidy kit.> http://www.ebay.com/itm/JOHN-DEERE-STEERING-GEAR-REPAIR-KIT-102-135-LA120-LA155-/261112192757?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3ccb7fdef5

dont let the high price full you, just the pinion $40 and the steering gear $32 is $72 and you get both and the $10 bushings x2 plus for the same price!!
