Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
hey tom my name is ***** ***** ill see what I can do to help
so what you are saying is that on your john deere D105 you have to turn the engine counter clockwise and then hit the starter?
those machines had an issue with valve adjustment. basicly what is happening is the valves are adjusted to tight and not allowing compression to leave the cylinder. so when you hit the starter its trying to overcome all th engines compression without a running start. deere at one time had a warranty fix for this. it may be worth calling your local deere dealer with your serial # and asking what they can do for you. not a hard fix and a pretty simple solution
hope this helps and thank you very much for using JA
