    I Need help with a JD RX75 Kawasaki 9HP Engine Wont turn over, no power.

    I worked on many Briggs and Stratton Mower engines, but never a tractor engine especially a Kawasaki 9 HP if you have one or have knowledge it would be appreciated.

    I believe there may be a hidden disconnected wire or a short or something because the battery is good but not turning over when I turn the key. How do I test the key switch for conductivity I don't know which wires are for power to starter. There's no markings on the underside of the key switch. I can't find anything about this online either.
    If you live near me in Chester Pa Delaware county pa let me know. Maybe you can come help me.

    One safety switch is on the left side of the transmission, can see the wiring from the rear, see if that has unplugged.

    I rebuilt my mower with another and also swapped out and installed the 12.5 Kawasaki engine. Also rebuilt the harness. Go on line and Google a starter relay harness kit for your mower, helps with starting cause all the safety switches have gotten old. You can easily make your own.

    Hello,

    If I were you I would start with my approach in any situation like this, start looking in and around everywhere for a loose, broken, or disconnected wire. Many times a loose ground wire will prevent the starter from engaging. Make sure the big leads from the battery to the frame/engine (ground ) is tight, and the positive lead from the battery to the starter solenoid or starter are on and tight. Check the wires to and from the ignition and to the starter solenoid. Check any neutral or seat safety switches. Pictures are also helpful!

    There is also a safety switch at the deck engagement lever near the ignition switch, the other is at the transmission as I mentioned earlier and the other is the seat safety switch. Check to see if you have power going to the starter from the switch, it will be the other, small wire, at the starter, should be all be itself. If no power, go to switch and see if you have battery power there. Also, have you check the fuse to see if it has power or blown?

    A RX75 is not considered by this site as "vintage", which is where this thread was originally posted. It has been moved to the regular Lawn and Garden Tractor forum. Only the models listed in the description for the Vintage L&G are to be discussed there. All others belong in the regular L&G forum, including the RX series.
