    X475 62c Deck. Machine Stopped Abruptly and will not Restart, found this.

    As I was mowing the mower stopped suddenly and I saw the black plastic piece come out of the discharge chute. It was very hot so I knew it was part of the mower. The mower cranks but will not fire. I opened the engine compartment and found a magnet broken and stuck to the side of the engine compartment. It appears that this magnet fits in the black plastic piece. I've looked and cannot figure out where it came from. Any thoughts? Thanks.

    Sounds like something fell off your mower and it got run over by the deck. Seeing the deck was running whatever it was got chopped. This is what I would do.
    You will need to figure out weather it came off your tractor or was something just laying in the grass that you ran over.
    Jack the front of the tractor up.
    Take a look underneath for anything missing or loose.
    Pay special attention to the deck. Any marks, dents or damaged blades?
    Look around in the yard/grass where it happened. See if you find anything else. Then start working your way outward from ground zero.
    Whatever it is it's important enough that the tractor won't run.
    Possibly one of the safety systems components.
    Also check that your have everything set correctly before trying to start the tractor. Sometimes you get so excited when something like this happens you forget something.

    Could it be one of those magnets that stick on the outside of an oil filter?

    Update. I've removed the safety kill wires from the coils and still no fire.

    Update. I took the shroud off the flywheel and found a broken screw and more of the magnet. See the attached pic I believe that is where the magnet needs to go. I can see where the screw is broken off down in the hole. This turns and crosses the coil produce producing I would think? Not sure how to find that part or what it is called.

    No magnet = no spark. You definitely need to replace that magnet. Getting that screw out may present a big challenge due to its size. A shop may want to replace the flywheel rather than mess with the screw.

    Them damaged magnets will not charge the magnetos. That's why you don't have spark.
    Now for the bad news. You might have to buy the whole flywheel to get them magnets. If so you will have to replace the entire assembly. They also have to be in the exact same place for the plug to fire at the right time.
    You also need to check both magnetos for damage. They could have taken a hit when the magnets first started coming loose. Then they usually finish braking the magnets off the flywheel.
