the timing is computer controlled when there is no dist.---which became standard in 1987---previous to that you rotate the dist. and set it to the number of degrees advance that the decal under the hood says---some where around 10---the timing marks are behind the harmonic balancer (which is on the end of the crankshaft)

On top of the cam sensor synchronizer which is sticking out of the top of the timing cover on the front of the engine.

You don't jump any terminals. I'm assuming your talking about using the DLC. Hook a timing light to the number one spark plug wire and loosen the clamp bolt on the distributor a little. Timing should be a 36-38 degrees BTD.

From everything I see the 125 is a 42" mower with a 20HP engine. The STX-38 mowers were 38" with either a 12.5 or a 13HP engine. So, yes the 125 is bigger than the STX-38.
