What kind of problem do you have? I have Deere manual in the L100 series.

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
I replaced a kohler command 25 hp on a John Deere g100 tractor with a 25hp kohler courage pro. I can't figure out how to wire the new motor into the JD wire harness. I've traced the wires from the old harness to the new one on the motor an still no luck. The solinoid clicks. It's a. Rand new battery and new statter and soliniod. I thought the wiring diagrams would help me but they didn't. Can you figure it out
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 9 months ago.

Ok, Is solenoid is on the starter or separate on the new engine?

Expert:  Curtis B. replied 9 months ago.

Is the battery positive cable on the solenoids open terminal or on the starter side of the solenoid? Has to be on open side of solenoid.

Expert:  Curtis B. replied 9 months ago.

If starter solenoid clicks, it should be making the connection to turn the starter. Assuming the engine is free and not locked.?? You have turned engine manually, and it turns?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
it's a brand new motor. I turned big over while it was on the bench. The positive is on the open side of the solenoid, it clicks but doesn't engage the starter. I checked the starter with juice from my truck and it spun and engaged. The battery on the mower is 300 cca. I'm gonna take the battery out of my truck and see if it turns over. The first napa battery they sold me was defective.
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 9 months ago.

Check the battery voltage before you turn switch to start and while you are in start.Battery has to stay above 8 volts when in start position. for any chance of turning engine.

Expert:  Curtis B. replied 9 months ago.

Have you turned engine after install? The electric clutch can lock the engine if not shimmed properly.

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
The solenoid is on the starter. The electric clutch is not on the motor yet The battery charger is reading 12.4 then when I turn the key it goes to 12.3
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 9 months ago.

?? no load on the battery, so the connection is not making at the solenoid.??

Expert:  Curtis B. replied 9 months ago.

Same reading at the starter solenoid end of cable?

Expert:  Curtis B. replied 9 months ago.

If you jump the two large connections on the starter with old screwdrive, will starter turn?
