I have a 16hp Honda engine on my Craftsman riding mower and it will not fire. I have checked the plugs, carburator, switch on seat. no luck!


just trying to grasp the situation here: I am assuming that it will not fire means it is cranking but not starting.... pull the plugs and have them laying where you can see if they are sparking, if they are then the coil is good, this means that the gas is not getting to the plugs, you will need to disconnect the gas line on the fuel filter, gas should come out of the hose, if not then the line or the bottom of the tank is clogged, if it does then hook it back up and disconnect the line after the filter, check for gas, if none the filter is clogged, if yes then disconnect the gas line from the carburetor, same as before. Hope this helps Tim if the situation is different then post and if I am still here I will answer

On any pushrod engine you have to make sure that the timing is correct or nearly correct when first firing it up, if you had the cam in the wrong position the pushrod had no place to go when the cam lobe came around=bend push rod.

My craftsman 42in rider quits after about 30 to 45 minutes. The carb solenoid is good and the gas cap is venting ok. I have to wait about 20 to 30 minutes before it will start again. What should I check...


try the coil,does it get fire to the sparkplug after it quits and what color is the spark? blue spark is good, red is weak fire, and not enough to fire the engine up.

LT2000 has no fire. Starter engages, fuel on plug but not firing


check all the wires for ground even a small nick in the wires will keep the engine from firing up, then check the ignition switch for wear..good luck

What engines will fit craftsman dyt 4000 (18.5 blew w/ 290 hours)


Hi there
The only thing you have to do is have the size (diameter) and lenght (from cranckcase to end of shaft) of the shaft you have on your b&s and just go to your local Honda dealer , give them your shaft size and they should be able to give you all the options for a brand new motor . I really believe you can get a Honda 20hp model GXV620 or a 24hp model GXV670 that will replace your B & S motor .
Hope this help .
