If checking spark make shore the out side if plug is earthed to chain saw.
Fresh clean fuel, clean fuel filter filter pull exhaust off and check piston is ok. Than check for flooding. start there.

Why won't my 130BT blower start? the unit won't start replaced the plug, dumped the fuel added 50:1 gasoline still nothing? Sprayed starter fluid in carb still nothing.

I had that same problem. I have not tried fixing lately. Take apart the carburetor and spray it and brush with carb-cleaner. You can try cleaning the fuel filter in the gas tank. Fish it out with your finger or a piece of metal wire. Take it apart and clean it with gasoline, also clean the air filter with soap and water and let it dry. If it still does not start, clean the muffler, where it emits the burnt co2, carbon builds up there over time (there is also a screen there where you can see the brown/black carbon). Try cleaning w the Carburetor cleaner spray and a toothbrush, wire brush or thin flat-head screwdriver and let dry. If that doesn't work, maybe you need to replace the whole muffler part. I think that is what I might do. I'm not using so haven't got around to fixing it. Hope it helps if not maybe a professional can help. Good luck...

Changed spark plugs now runs rough and has thick white exhaust

Changing the plugs probably had nothing to do with it.
White smoke is usually a sign the engine is burning coolant or trans fluid. You might want to check those fluid levels.
If the coolant is low, you may have a leaking head gasket or intake gasket.

Car does not shift to 1st gear after being flooded.

Since you said that you drove through water paddle surely water splashed into the engine compartment,where the main wiring plug of the automatic gear box is. You c\n find it easy is between the radiator fan and the gear box on the top of the gear box. Disconnect it and use a contact cleaner spray by spraying into the connectors both faces.

Drove my '99 Stratus through high water & wont start 2 weeks later

If water went over the hood and into your air cleaner there's probably water in your engine. change your oil. Pull your spark plugs, leave them out for a few days to let any water in there dry out. pull your air cleaner, if it's wet, throw it away and get another one. After a few days pour some Marvel Mystery Oil into your spark plug tubes or spray PB Blaster (encase your pistons are rusted to the block)

This may not get it working, if there was water in the engine when your were trying to start it you may have bent the valves, water doesn't compress.

However I would do these things before condemning your engine.

Have a 19.5 HP Twin B&S with a 46" cut model father in laws whioch hasnt started for years. He has neen cutting his yard with a push mower, but had a heart attack 2 weeks ago and has asked me to...

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly I just answered another post and your question appeared after my posting. I see it is 2 days old. I am right now looking up the engine and the wiring diagram.
To get ignition you must have:
1. A full oil level. The engine has a low oil level sensor that will kill ignition if the oil level is low.
2. A a working clutch brake pedal switch
3. Someone sitting in the seat.
4. PTO clutch dis-engaged
5. Key in run or start.

Without all of the above you will not get ignition and the start solenoid will not cycle. (Start solenoid does not go through the oil level sensor.)

From what I can tell this is the 19.5 Hp Briggs and Stratton 42E707-2631-E1

I tried crossing the model number to a manual and the closest I could get was the manual with the same model number as yours except the last digit is a 1 vs a 3 Manual link below.


Mower parts are here:
Note the diagrams under the picture. Each of those thumbnail pictures will open a new section.

I think once you sort out the switches that you will get both the start solenoid and the ignition to work.
Since this mower has been sitting for sometime you should probably check out the PTO clutch gap. There are 3 spring loaded bolts / nuts and there are 3 slots in the PTO clutch. Static the gap in the clutch must be 0.020. Otherwise you will not only have starting problems but blade engagement problems. Adjust the 3 bolts/nuts until you get a 0.020 gap. That should make the switches in the PTO clutch work. Just look at the wiring for any damage around the PTO clutch also... A previously thrown belt can trash the clutch wiring.

After the PTO clutch your checkin Brake.clutch pedal switch and the seat pedal switch.
For troubleshooting only you can disconnect ONE wire from the oil level sensor to see if you get spark.

I recommend you get the starter to work normally first and then troubleshoot ignition. Because except for the low oil level sensor they are common.

Safety switches can for troubleshooing only be bypassed by running a jumper wire from the white wire of the key switch to the starter solenoid white wire connection. If the starter works by doing this and does NOT work without the jumper... you have safety switch problems.

Hopefully with this information you can revive this mower from hibernation.
Feel free to ask any questions anytime I will stick with you here until we figure it out.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Lately, whenever it rains, my 1998 chevy blazer wont start/won't run. the engine turns over, but it won't run. after 2 or 3 days it will fire up like nothing was wrong with it to begin with. any...

Whenever I had this problem, it was always cured with a new set of GOOD spark plug wires. Not generic set off the parts store shelf. Get some moisture removal spray and put it on both ends, the coil and the plug, before putting the wires on. Do one wire at a time so you do not get them mixed up. I do not think you have a distributor or a cap. If you do replace it also as it is over 20 years old.

Car is not starting when damp

Lincoln town cars are famous for this because the rear opening to the hood has been placed right over your distributor so; the rainwater just soaks your distributor. to fix this permanently get a piece of oil roofing paper cut it about 6' wide and glue it over the gap from under the hood this will keep your distributor dry
