The following are the stages the 265 went through today after it was unloaded. Sorry if the pics are all out of wack. The last pic shows the hood after I buffed an waxed it. The old starter is out I need gas line an a filter an after the tank if flushed out it should be running.

If a B&S 16 will fit in there, then maybe we need to try the 18HP on the 265 we have here.

Well the new stated is on an the first time I hit the key the solenoid buzzed an now nothing I'm guessing it's either a fuse or It cooked the solenoid tomorrow will tell as I go after it with a volt meter to find if I even have power to the solenoid then I'll back track the wiring from there

John Deer's are a well built machine.  But it seems like every one has 3 or 4 week spots and constantly give problems.  I have an F525 with  48" deck.  I keep it maintained and don't abuse it.  I have replaced the plugs and battery, which is maintenance and the traction assist cable.  The problem is with the deck drive belt.  One season is all I can get out of one.  At over $100 each they should last a lot longer than that.  The pulleys are all lined up, nothing rubbing but it seems they last just so long then won't stay on.  Only fix is another $100.  I love this machine with it's off set deck.  Only the F series machines that has this feature.  But I would not buy another JD machine.

I used to use an F525, but moved up to an F725, water cooled engine, shaft drive to the deck, easier maintenance,etc.

Got one of those here needing an engine!

Seems a lot of those spit a rod or have other trouble..  Not Kawasaki's finest engine for sure..

Easier maintenance?  Those things are an abortion of mechanical wizardry!  Try to replace the water pump!

Just try to change to oil on a 525 without having it on a rack!
