Lx172 poor fire, no start, ignitor bad?

THIS IS FOR RON WHO EMAILED ME ABOUT HIS KAWASAKI ENGINE ON HIS DEERE MOWER HAVING LITTLE FIRE AND WILL NOT START. THE SAME HAPPENED TO ME ON AN OLDER DEERE 172 WITH A FC420V MOTOR.

THE DEERE PARTS BOOK WAS WRONG ON THE IGNITOR PART NUMBER LISTED. A DEERE MECHANIC ON LAWNSITE WAS KIND ENOUGH TO LOOK UP THE CORRECT PART NUMBER AND SOLVE MY PROBLEM.

FOR SOME REASON, I COULD NOT REPLY TO HIS EMAIL (FAILURE NOTICE).

SO, IF YOU ARE OUT THERE RON, HERE IS MY EMAIL RESPONSE



There is an error in the John deere parts book. They list the wrong ignitor. You might check the history on my posts on lawnsite under my "echoman8", post for help from JD mechanic on lawnsite or contact J Deere on internet.

I just looked at ebay and found "
John Deere LX176 Tractor Kawasaki FC420V 14hp Engine Ignitor

" a used one for less than $30. This should solve the problem.
