Locate the plug on the right side of the engine that comes out from under the engine cover and also the regulator that bolts to the engine top cover on the top right side,held in with a bolt that take 10 mm wrench.The problem is usually burnt wire end in the plug or the regulator it's self has to be repaired or replaced.

Why does battery light stay on?

Can be a number of things from dirty connections at battery terminals, bad battery, low RPM when operating, bad alternator or rectifier. Try charging battery first and try it for a cut of two if possible. If you can test the battery voltage when running it should be 13-14 volts. Hope this helps. Brad

My jd 318 wont start and back fires,i replaced the shaft key did it brack agein

It sounds like it did break again. Check the key and ensure that the flywheel is installed dry onto the shaft and the bolt in the end of the shaft is tight enough.

How to get JD 318 out of neutral

Your tractor has a hydrostatic transmission, I'm not sure about the lock on the dash board down next to the key, but most hydro's, you just slam them into gear and go, and it will go back and forth till you get tired of going back and forth. I love the thing. Check it out. Hope this helps.
