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.

SOURCE: John Deere Lawn Tractor LX176. Battery discharge

Locate voltage regulator above battery to the left as you sit on machine,its behind frame that supports steering wheel.Once you have found it use a light to shine on harness and follow the brown wire that leads into regulator.The plastic around that wire should not be burnt or showing any other color.The LX series machines had a problem with brown wire coming loose and causing the charging light to stay on.Remove plug from reg and use small screwdriver to clean out wire and work it a little so it makes good contact.

Sounds very much like a fuel issue, i.e., starving for fuel. Check the fuel filter and replace.

Brake pedal won't release on a John Deere 316 lawn tractor


I have the same problem. I just wiggle the black handle on the parking brake release. It usually allows the pedal to come back up. One of these days I'll see what hanging up in the linkage.
