Hello!

Just picked up a 1991 STX38 (gear) last night that doesn't currently run but the previous owner says that, when the battery had a charge, the engine would turn over but not start. Never owned a tractor before but I'm handy enough with small engines.

I'm going to start with the electrical and fuel/air systems. Any advice on how to go about it would be much appreciated!

Just be careful not to get in over your head. These mowers in good working condition only go for $350-$500 max. By the time u start spending JD money on these, you can end up spending more than its worth. I know b/c it has happened to me. The hood breaks at the hinge attachment & its $100 for a USED hood. Tires are $35 ea for front & $50 for back if they are dry rotted beyond tubes. Gear Transmissions wear out. But the Kohler 12.5 is a very good motor. Just b careful is all Im saying!!!
