SOURCE: john deere 420 trouble starting getting gas and

The engine needs air, so be sure the air filter is clean. If it is not, replace it.

The engine needs spark. Replace the spark plug and be sure that the battery has a complete charge.

The engine needs good fuel so be sure the gas is newly purchased, not gas that has been sitting around for months.

SOURCE: gas tamk removal john deere 115

I had the same thing happen. I got the tank out, but it wasn't easy. Take out the bolts out that hold the rear end on. Take off the two springs that support the seat. Take out the battery and the battery tray. Take out the 6 bolts that hold the black cowling and the front of the green platform to the frame. This will allow you to lift the seat platform far enough off the rear end to allow the tank to be pulled out through the side. You also have to remove the metal bracket which holds the front of the tank and has caused the tank to leak in the first place. New tank is $56.00 not installed. I used a soldering gun and melted the plastic back together. I think it will hold quit a while. I know this is a little sketchy, but It worked for me.

How do you adjust a john deere 160 FC420V carburetor. It just backfires out of the carburetor and don't start

Hmmmm. Backfiring is usually a function of bad timing. Or check to make sure that the float is working and that the engine is not being flooded with gas.

Check the connector to the meter and make sure it is fully seated to the meter, if it is I would replace the meter.

I have a JD D110 riding mower and the gas gauge always shows full. It worked for awhile and then I filled the tank and it now always says full. How do I fix this?

If the wire from the sender to the gage is shorted out to ground the gage will always show full. Other possible is a defective sender or gage,even on a new machine

Fuel gauge inop on a 2000 john deere 5310 tractor

Either the fuel gauge has given up the ghost or the sending unit is not properly grounded, in which case the fuel gauge would not work. Hope this Helps, Don

Gas gauge always reads full

The unit that sends level info to the gauge is defective; this normally doesn't happen instantly but will show up usually as an erratic movement of your indicator.
The sender unit is a variable wire-wound resistor with a wiper attached to the float and the wire element does wear through sooner or later.
It is probably necessary to remove the gas tank from the vehicle to replace it unless the engineers were smarter than usual and provided an access hatch from inside the vehicle.
The senders are not expensive but depending on how twisted the removal and reinstallation of the tank is, the labor will be the larger cost item.
