Have you decided what my problem is?
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 year ago.

Is this the Deere X340 lawn tractor, with the twin Kawasaki engine? Or snow mobile? Snowmobile would have the emergency kill switch and the key switch. Either can kill spark.

It is a Kawasaki engine

Engine model number? Does it have a single terminal igniter that attaches to the wire going to the coil? 340 is only shown as X340 with twin engine . You sure about the model number? If no igniter, unplug the wire from the coil and see if you have spark when cranking.

I am so sorry, I cant asnswer that Question.My Son was in a accident Saturday morning,and he would be the one to do that. But I did get some info. It is a 20 H V twin its a 98 model. Model no is 00345B070325.

Sorry! Let me know when you want to work on it. Has to be loosing spark or fuel and with a twin engine, more likely fuel problem. Carburetor or fuel supply to the carburetor.
