SOURCE: JOHN DEERE 318 LAWN TRACTOR WONT START

ok, since you have the points, I assume you have the B43g Onan
engine. Was it running before the new parts were installed?
Check your point gap and make sure it is .016, plugs ahould be gapped at .025 Make sure your plug wires are good too. Should be somewhere between 0 and 10,000 ohms per foot, when measured with an ohmmeter. Once everything is rechecked for gap distance, make sure there is no spark by pulling plug out, leaving wire on and ground the outside of plug to the chassis of the tractor.
Crank over and look for the spark. Coils are about $100, so you want to eliminate everything else first.
Diagnosing a points ignition for no spark is really simple. Do you have 12V at the coil? Do you get a spark when you connect and disconnect the negative terminal of the coil to ground? If not you have a bad coil.

Check the coil impedance on the primary and secondary side. You'll have to disconnect the battery negative cable so you don't short something out. Unplug the spark plug wires and the two sets of smaller wires connected to the primary side of the coil. The primary coil reading should be between 3.7 ohms and 4.6 ohms while the secondary (spark plug side) should be between 34.2 k-ohms and 41.6 k-ohms. If the resistance values you measure are outside of these ranges, you need to replace the coil.

SOURCE: John Deere 4210 brakes are locked up

On both sides of trans housing just in front of axles is where brake shafts go into trans.To fix this you have to spray alot of lube between shaft and housing while trying to rotate shaft.This may take hours to free up and also check for the return springs to still be hooked up to lower roll bar frame.I have seen this alot in the 4000 series tractors.

Purple wire goes to the solenoid on starter.If you installed starter with single wire post all you have to do is mount a solenoid to the frame just in front of starter,existing batt/starter cable goes to one solenoid post,purchase a short red cable and install on other solenoid post and run it to the starter,plug purple wire into new solenoid and the way you go.

I have a John Deere LT155. When you let off of either the forward or reverse pedal the tractor comes to an abrupt stop. It will actually lock the wheels.


Hi, most likely the brakes are hanging up. Follow the brake pedal path to the rear of the mower, it is attached to a small arm on the side of the diff that is probably locked forward. This lever and the pins behind it need to be freed up so the lever operates forward and backward freely when the brakes are applied and released. Hope this helps, regards Phil.
