Tractor not starting , I do not see any gas in fuel filter

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

    Hi, Did you say that you herd the air blowing into the gas tank? and did you hear a bubbly sound

    Silly question! Do you have any gas?

    tractor died and would not start. I drained gas tank and bled fuel lines. Tractor ran then died again after 5 minutes. Kubota serviceman suggested debris as the problem.

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!

My jd 111lawn tractor wont start was mowing it just slowly died.now it will turn over but wont start


Sounds like a fuel issue. Check and make sure your gas tank has fuel in it. Then check fuel filter to see if it is allowing fuel to the carb.

Tractor sat for winter and started and white smoke stopped and carb is spitting out gas


Please desribe the engine type (Vanguard V2?) and what was the cause if you had it fixed. I had the same problem--serious to the point off heavy fuel loss and fire if the muggler had heated but turned of immidiately. Only two explanatiions seem possible:
  • Frozen float/float valve
  • Spontaneouls fuel pump failure or impulse control fault.
Enough fuel coming out to pour through filter and out of cleaner assembly. No apparent cause otheer (in my case) than recent filter service prior to few months storage.

Jd gx345 20 hp kawasaki water cooled. turns over will not start Both coils have juice to bath termals at the same time with the key on or off.


Drain fuel completely from tank, fuel line, and carburetor... Change fuel filter, change spark plug(s) add FRESH gas... Not 1 week, month or year old gas... (Can't be contaminated, or mixed with old fuel) there will be a drain screw on the carburetor (at the side of the bowl) You may need some quick start to get the engine to initially start up and keep it running with the spray until the fuel system fills up with fresh fuel and stays started.

I have a B & S vanguard 20 H.P. vert. shaft, 8 years old on Simplicty tractor. Keeps fouling plugs. Clean or replace plugs and it runs fine for about 1/2 an hour then starts to miss, blacksmoke, and...


Anti-foul plug adapters might be a temporary solution (treats the symptom and not the cause).
Personally, I would take it to a good, reputable, small engine repair shop that has verifiable references, and have them repair it.

Briggs 14 HP Vanguard runs well until PTO is engaged


First thing u might want to check is the governor--Make sure the spring and linkage is hooked up properly and the governor is moving freely.
