The L118 was an entry-level model in 2004-2005 and thus has a lighter-duty transmission (the T40/K46). I believe it's equivalent to the D130 or D140 currently on the market.Is the john deere L118 just a mower with a pot metal trans etc?
Or is it really a good machine.
One is for sale locally for $600.
Did the engine crank when trying to restart it? Were you able to start it after the engine cooled off?Now what?!
Put on the new drive pullies & belt, changed the xmsn fluid (lots less whiny now), put on sharp blades, a few shots of grease in the spindles and away I go. Mowed for about an hour and a half, shut down to refuel. Won't start after refueling. Lights work, but nothing else. On the charger now. ***?!?!
