Hi Everyone, I am new to the site and I am in the middle of a 18 hp Kawasaki water cooled John deere engine. It had the plastic cam gear that i am replacing, does anyone here have the instructions on setting the timing on this engine? 

Thanks for any help

iamdad.

On the FD620D you need to line up the marks on both gears so they are closest together.

If you check the Kawi web site they might have that information on line. JD won't let us post manuals here.

Welcome aboard iamdad!   :welcome:

 

The timing is all triggered by the flywheel magnets.  As long as the flywheel key isn't bent or sheared life is good!

What model is the tractor? 18hp liquid cooled sounds like the FD590V which would be a 285, 320 or 345.
