Question about Craftsman Garden
I had flush several times the carbulator, check fuel pump, change gas filter, spark plugs, drain gastank looking for water. and tractor does not start. It was working good and them I have this problem since March. Does any body got an Idea of what to do? Other than exorcism.
When you flushed the carb did you remove the bowl and clean it?
If not you should try this.
If you did then you should check to make sure you have spark
If you have spark you should check to make sure your idle jet did not fall out when you cleaned the fuel bowl (this can happen very easily and will fall silently and disappear) If it's missing, it will not start no matter how hard you try.
Try those things and repost with what you found if still having problems.

I had a similar problem and found that the float was hanging up on the wall of the carb fuel chamber. I sanded lightly the outer edge of the float and never had the problem again. That was 3 years ago. Having a different problem now. After setting overnight in cold weather, 20's, engine turns over very slowly even with a new battery. Engine starts, but barely. Once running, everything seems fine. After shutoff, engine restarts quickly. Next morning, same thing happens. Anyone have any thoughts?

Sounds like you may have a problem with Choke adjustment, or perhaps a broken choke cable. Do you have a workshop manual?
