It is time to replace the driven wheel. When you flip the mower up on the back end (after closing the vent on the top of the fuel cap), the driven wheel is the disc that has rubber on the outer edge that rides on the silvery disc that comes off the end of the motor. The last time I bought one was about 7 years ago, at which time it cost me about $7.85. I would expect it to be around $11-12 these days.

If one goes to the starter, the other has to come from a 12 volt source, either ignition switch or battery

Try cleaning or better yet, replacing the spark plug. Depending on age and how your tractor was maintained, there are other possible causes.

  • Gummed up fuel system
  • dirty fuel filter
  • defective or misaligned armature/magneto (part that causes your plug to spark, igniting the air/fuel mixture, thus starting the engine)
  • throttle linkage/cable problems
  • low oil level. Some Kohler engines use a low oil shut down sensor which won't allow the engine to run or start to avoid internal damage.
  • Mechanical engine problems
I hope you find this solution helpful. Please rate it thanks for using Fixya!

Hi.

There is gas smell in the carburetor because the engine is not starting and carburetor is flooding.

As first thing ensure that there is spark, pull the spark plug wire and put the end near to engine block while cranking. You will see the spark. If there is no spark, check distribution coil and wires.

If there is spark, check if there is fuel pressure, if there is smell from carb, then the fuel pressure should be Ok.
Once you are sure that the pump is doing its job, and that there is pressure, check the carburetor settings. The mixture is probably too rich or too lean, and for that reason it is not igniting.
If it is not a matter of carburetor settings, then the carb must be taken apart to check carburetor filter.

Sounds like its not getting enough fuel. clean the fuel system and the carby. The valve clearances also need to be checked.
