      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

schematics for a John Deer

Recommended Posts

I used to be able to go to the John Deer web site and print out schematics for my lx188. Well now I can't seem to be able to do that. Currently my rider shuts down after about 30 minutes of running it. I think i need to put on a new carb, or at least try to clean it out. Any one have any ideas?

I think your problem is one of the safty switches, there are two, one under the seat and one on the mower switch. If either one of these is bad they will cut the voltage to the magnetic shut off on the bottom of the carb. and cut off the fuel supply. The one under the seat you can jumper across the two wires after it is unpluged to check if this switch is the cause of your trouble. Or as soon as the mower stops check for electric power where the wire fastens to the magnetic switch on the bottom of the carb. There is also a plastic moguale on the left side of the engine that gets soft and mushy from engine heat that will shut the engine down. Hope this helps.

Nothing sits like a deere. It seems like every other John Deere has the same problem. Here is the possibilites that aren't mentioned above.

1. Possibly the vent on the gas cap is clogged. You can try removing the gas cap to see if the problem goes away or clean the vent or replace the cap.

2. Delay module $15

3. Ingition moduel hope it's not this one because it's expensive right around $300 I believe. If it's this trade it off a get something that's made to last. This doesn't usually happen till after many hours. A good dealer will let you try out the part to see if this is the problem.

4. Carb/overheating problem

5.fuel filter or your tank filter not sure if the lx has a tank filter.

6. switch module flywheel

7. water temp module (if liquid cooled)

8. bad safety sitch

If it's not any of these I have some other ideas for yah.

If it does happen to be the ignition module i have seen someone before take a magnify glass and find the sodder connection that is broke and re-sodder it and it worked great.

No luck yet but I think I have it nailed down. I have noticed that my fuel filter empties real quick. I also have some sort of over flow valve on the carb that gas leaks out of. I have been told that it might be my float in the carb. well I am not the best at taking stuff apart and then get it back together again but I think I am going to give it a try. I still am not sure if I am going to try to re-build the carb or just replace it. That is why I would like some diagrams of it so I might have a shot in heck of putting it back together right. I am going to tare into this week.

Yes you might have a hole in the float. If you do it will fill up with gas and sink and the fuel will flow consistantly. I have brazed (sp) these many times. But i wouldn't think it would run good for a while and then quit if this was the problem. But I've been wrong before.

Well I got the carb off last night. LOL Good luck getting that back on!! Hopefully I won't have to many problems with it. I took lots of pictures incase I forgot what spring went where and what thingamado went into what thingamahole. I did find the HSOforum that had the schematics I was looking for. So that is a good thing. Today I am going to head down to the local dealer and see how much a re-build kit is verses and new one all together.

    •  If you want a sweet and fruity wine --Stay away from those that are made of flowers (dandelion, clover ect.) You can make wine out of just about anything, It all depends on the flavor you want.  Sugar water and yeast fermented makes the alcohol, the rest is for flavor.   Flowers make a dry wine, some of the best dry wine I ever made was from dandelions (blossoms only) and it takes lots of blossoms to make a gallon of that. If you have access to wild plums- go for it and I think you will enjoy. Yeast is important- get the wine yeast, ordinary yeast is killed way before the fermentation should be done. Do some research and you'll screw up on some ,but learn in the process. It's all trial and a lot of error.                             Good Luck --Just like cooking on a grill --experiment.
    •   Dave, head over to "Our Lady of the Prairie" this Sunday. You can get free Wine! 
    • The JV squad has a steady supply fermenting over in Silly Town Some guys on our floor in college made rhubarb and Dandelion wine in the dorm. It was not good. 
    • Anyone here make their own wine?    I have been doing a little research on the process and plan to give it a shot this year. One of our favorite wines is Redass Rhubarb from Hill City SD and we like other fruit wines. My wife likes anything fruity and sweet. It may take me a while to dial in a few internet recipes to something we like but that's part of the fun.   I think I would try making some now but I think I would have to turn up our thermostat to get through the fermentation. It appears that a temp of 70-75 is necessary and our house is usually 62-68 this time of the year.
    •   I think that's exactly what I should have done. It would have probably reached me sooner. 
    • I'm thinking of selling my IceGator and going with the Strikemaster. Looking at the Strikemaster, it is not as bulky and heavy. The IceGator does cut ice like butter, especially with a Strikemaster 224 bit!
    •   The default temp is 360 for the NuWave 36001 Brio I mentioned above, but it can be programmed as high as 390. I absolutely agree that it does make a difference for certain things to get those extra 30-40 degrees.
    • yes i did i messaged him directly outside of the post
    • Looks like the Hawks might be without Crawford the rest of the season.   http://nhl.nbcsports.com/2018/01/16/report-blackhawks-concerned-crawford-could-miss-remainder-of-season/
    • We use a line voltage thermostat, with it set in the "cool" position.  Once it hits the set temp the thermostat kicks the fan on, until it gets below the set point.  Works pretty well.
