Question about Riding Mowers & Garden Tractors
5 year old -48'' cut cub cadet riding lawn mower. 18 horse briggs engine. When mower was a couple of years old, engine started dragging when you tried to start. It would always start. Kept getting worse, Changed out battery-no change, changed starter, no help, cleaned ground connection, no help.In the past, after it started and you drove it a while, turned off-then restarted-it would start with out dragging.Yesterday it would not start -even after putting a 125 amp. charger to battery.Any suggestions? Starter solinoid maybe?
It may be a problem with the camshaft-compression release. Some of the Briggs & Stratton models had a weak spring on the compression release whis is parts of the camshaft. you may also want tocheck that all wires are clean and tight. Also if it's a over head valve model check the valve clearance.
