Question about Garden
I have a John Deere X300 lawn tractor with an intermittent starting problem. From time to time, when you turn the key all you get is a click. Battery is connected, headlights work, but starter will not turn. Keep turning key off and on and eventually it starts. Other times, it starts just fine. What parts should I start replacing?

On the X300 the reverse switch is under the right foot rest, you can see it if you move the reverse pedal. It is rivited on a bracket, a 10mm bolt holds the bracket to the tractor. Remove the bolt and the switch and bracket can be lifted off, leave it hang and you can now mow in reverse. Any legal problems just claim the bolt must have fallen out:) Save the bolt if you change your mind.

Well it is a saftey feature but the switch is in the linkage and needs to be unpluged or jumpered. My neigbor has an X300R that has been bypassed. He go the info off the net somewhere. I have bypassed all my blade switches that I operate. I do however leave the seat and clutch switch. I thought that had a bypass switch on the dash???

This is a safety feature that is not that hard to do so i say live with it.You do'nt have to hold it up just pull it up before you start backing up and once your moveing you can let go without it shutting off the deck until the pedel returns to neutral again,all tractor have it by law after a certain date so jumping around it is niot a good idea.
