SOURCE: Poulan ride on lawn mower will not run by itself--if you pour gas into the intake it will run until the sm amt runs out

It could be your fuel shutoff solenoid is not working or is stuck from gum, varnish or rust in your carb bowl. The fuel shutoff solenoid is located on the bottom of your carburetor. To check it, have someone, or yourself if you can reach the ignition switch, turn the key to the on position and back off several times while you listen by the carb. You should hear a click each time. If not, the carb will have to be taken off and cleaned and checked. You will probably find water and/or rust in your bowl plugging up the main jet. Best to take it to a shop.

SOURCE: I tipped my poulan riding mower up from the right to check belt

If you remove the plug(s) so that the oil all drains back down, and some will drain back out of the muffler, it should start. But give a at least one day, maybe two. You may still have to put new plug(s) in it after it's gone. Check the fuel filter and see if you can see oil in it.

Take off the air cleaner when you get ready to start it and spray just a little starting fluid in the carb, Don't choke it. It will run rough and smoke like crazy, but after it runs a while it should be fine. It make take a few starts before it continues to run. At first it may run just on the starting fluid, but once the plugs fire up enough to burn the oil out it should run on its own.

Be sure and check the oil and if it seems like the slightest amount of gas in it, change the oil and filter.

Let us know how it comes out!

SOURCE: I have a Poulan riding mower and it has a 42

The easiest way is to find your owners manual and find the picture of the belt in there. Using the picture as a guide you can change the belt in a matter of a few minutes. Just make sure that you get the new belt under all of the belt guards or you will destroy the new belt in no time. If the pulley is flat on the running surface, it goes on the back side of the belt, if it is a "v" on the running surface, the inside of the belt goes in the "v". There may also be a routing diagram under the foot board on one side or other of the tractor. Some of the AYP units have it, some don't

Make a drawing of the deck routing and pull the belt off the mower measure the width and length of the belt and order one on line or go to a mower shop with the belt and they can size it to the one you need. Do the same for the drive belt.
