Question about Riding Mowers & Garden Tractors
My tractor has always started (SABRE by JD) 20 HP B&S Vanguard OHV, recently it will not start; it turns over fine but I do not see any gas being pumpedinto fuel filter. I too fuel filter off and turned engine over but still did not see any gas spilling out of fuel hose. Could the problem be in the fuel tank or is it in the carburetor, fuel pump, etc. I did use my air hose and blew out fuel line back into gas tank and observed air getting in that way.Thanks, Dan
Maybe a leaf or small twig in the tank keeps floating to the hole?

If fuel line from fuel pump to carburetor is dry, you need to replace the fuel pump.
Check your gas cap to make sure the tiny air/breathing hole in the top is clear.

I would suspect the fuel pump. Those thin diaphragms wear out every few years. But you can also make sure there is no obstruction in the line from your tank at the same time!
