The CD unit failed and is obsolete.  Has anyone found a 2nd source for the ignition control module part no. 30580-ZE3-790 or a schematic to make a work around unit.

That looks like one of those cheap Chinese scooter CDI boxes.Wonder if you could make 1 of those work? There like $8 shipped from hong kong.

Does your tractor have the single cylinder Honda GX340 in it? If so you could wire one of those cheap CDI boxes up and it will work.

Thanks for the Help and suggestions. All of the suppliers contacted reported back that the unit was obsolete and not available. I found a Chinese motorscooter CD unit for a GY6 50cc 125cc 150cc 4 stroke.  Amazon Bangood Product NO 975502 SKU 220424.  It has an identical connector, plugged in and started.  It is slightly larger and the rubber cushion had to be removed to fit.  Otherwise OK . It came with a coil and spark plug which were not used.  cost about $12.00

 

Combination relay for the starter circuit failed and was replaced with a starter solenoid from Drive Works (Advance Auto) NO DW-755 and push button starter switch from Autocraft NO 85935 also Advance.  The solenoid mounts without drilling or modification on the two studs that support the air cleaner above the starter motor.

 

Belt from PTO to mower drive was replaced with Kubota LB 89.  Number on the belt is D&D MegaPower Drive BK87 5L900 21/32 2011-11.  It takes the flex and bend from the PTO around the idlers/direction change without a problem.
