Well a little update on the chips. I put one on my John Deere 265 shortly after I put the one on my 1050, good 10 years ago. I was on my farm in WV and the tractor died. Put a new chip on it. Started, ran fine for an hour and blew. Put another one on, started ran OK for half an hour and blew. Got another one and before i plugged it in, I looked at the connections and I plugged the first two in backwards. So, on my JD, it will start and run for a while with the module in backwards. Make sure the ground is going to ground.

My John Deere 185 quit after the first snow a while back. I did the factory diagnostic and replaced the factory module with a Nova. Not sure which side is ground but it only lasted an hour. Put on another one and ordered the correct one online. The second Nova lasted until the original style arrived at which time I replaced the Nova with the factory type. I will save the Nova for later or a saw.
So tell me, how does one tell which terminal is supposed to be grounded? No markings on mine. The factory style only has one terminal, the metal body is grounded.

If it's a NovaII they are marked. Go back to page 1 and scroll down to the picture of my very dirty Super 1050. If you look close to the terminal on the left, you can see the little plus sign. When they are clean you can see it better. I was just down stairs looking for two tank gaskets for the 1050. No gaskets, but found two new Nova II's. I'll go check them.
