I started reconditioning a John Deere 60 since it was John Deere"s original Harry home owners lawn tractor and thought it would be a nice part of garden tractor history. What I did not count on was the Tecumseh's electrical system with the diodes/fuses. I have found a used replacement but still I have nothing when I turn the key. Well I checked ground and power from battery:confuse: but still nothing, so I thought," we'll post the problem and maybe someone will read, and maybe the majic of GTalk will take over :blush2:. I can only try; Let's see what happens now:confuse:.
A diode is just like a check valve for electricity. It only allows electricity to flow in one direction. basically it filters out "noise" in a DC (battery powered) system. Do you have a meter and/or a schematic/wiring digram?
