Hey all, I have a 291690 series 318 now for about 3 years and have constant electrical issues. I really want to like my JD tractor, but it's getting tougher everyday! :flag_of_truce:

Welcome, I've had my 318 for about a year now and it has taken a little maintenance here and there but look at the upside, you could be cutting the grass on a brand new Murray from Walmart.

Bull57,

Guess I replied to your other thread first, and was not aware your tractor is a 1984 model. Since you have the glass cylinder fuses and tubular fuse holders, you can greatly improve the reliability of your tractor by replacing them with the later style ATC style fuses. Here is an image from the TM1590 showing the serial number ranges and a picture of the two styles...

I can attach some smallish documents here that can help, but you need to get the full TM1590 manual if you do not already have it...The B43 engine manual from the Toro machines is very similar to the one in your tractor and was not part of a Deere manual (which are mostly copyrighted...)
