SOURCE: where are the seatbelts???

If you are missing anything from a new vehicle, your recourse is the dealer or manufacturer.
An opinion: I have been using seatbelts since 1962 (self-installed) and am convinced the need for them is certain since the shell of the vehicle protects in a rollover accident but on an ATV or similar, I would rather be thrown clear if the vehicle is improperly used and subsequently rolls. Where I live, hundreds of fatal accidents happen annually and no one I care about will ever have one of these as a gift.

SOURCE: i got a john deere gator 4x4 hpx, it will not run

Remove flywheel shroud to see your timing marks,they will be 90 degrees apart on face of flywheel.Use timing light on flywheel as you look directly at it from the side.when light flashes you should see the marks lined up with arrow at the center top of block breather cover.If you find that your timing is off there are only 2 things that it can be-FLYWHEEL KEY or the computer located at the rear of engine.I have only had 2 machines where the timing was off exactly 90 degrees and the computer had to be replaced both times.

Peg perago ride on toy only one tire has power

Does both wheels make a grinding sound when you turn them by
hand. If so, then you might have a lose wire. But if it does not make
a noise then the motor is no good. Each tire on the rear of my grandson's gator has a motor . The tires are independent of each

We have a gator HPX 12 and I think that the gears are slipping as it sometimes does not go forward and makes an awful noise. What can we do to rectify this problem?

You are probably right, but I don't think they sell parts for that; however, you can check with the manufacture...if you can get them they are very simple to install.

Peg perego gator grinding noise?

The Peg Perego Gearbox is the item that would make a clicking noise or grinding noise.
There are two different types.
One is a cross shape and another is a pentagon shape.
If you contact the folks at they will be able to tell you what type you need. I get all my parts from them because they help me figure the problems out.
Hope this helps
