SOURCE: Tecumseh LV195EA Starts then dies.

If the engine is running at all then your sensors should be ok. It sounds to me like its starving for fuel? Once the engine runs out of prime then it starves. Does the fuel system have a shut off valve? How about an inline fuel filter? Either could be plugged. I think what you will need to do is remove the carb from the engine and check to see if its clean and if fuel from the tank is flowing easily to it. Once you have the carb off the engine, remove the bowl from the carb by removing the bottom bowl nut. Use a small can or an ash tray to hold the small pieces. Shake the float back and forth to see if there is anything in it. Some floats are plastic and some are tin. If there is any liquid inside the float there is your problem. Otherwise continue on with your diagnosis by using a bread bag wire, minus the outer covering, and a little jet spray to probe and clean the internal jets. Pay particular attention to the center main jet which will have a small perpendicular air bleed hole near the bottom and to the air vent hole that is on the face of the carb where the air cleaner mounts. Any tiny piece of chaff will cause these to plug. For reassembly, the inlet needle slides into the float, and they are held to the casting by a pin. You can push the pin out with a small screwdriver and then grab it with a pair of needle nose pliers to get access to the float. Finally, check the O ring for cracks that goes between the bowl and the casting. This is an easy job, just take your time. Lawnboys are one of the better machines.

SOURCE: The rear wheels will not turn in reverse at all. I

Rear wheel drives like this have pinion gears with rachet pawls that allow them to go backwards freely while locking when the transmission drives them.

You need to take off your rear wheels and carefully remove the pawls. They look like little squareish metal shaft keys with springs under them. You should notice that the keys or pawls are covered in what looks like grease.....which is actually worm metal from the pinion gear and oil mixed together to form this pastey greasey substance. Clean all that stuff off and lightly oil *( light oil...3 in 1 kind of oil) and reassemble.

You should hear the nice clean clicking of the rachet pawls as you roll backwards again!

Good luck and be careful!

I have a Lawn Boy 10685 with a Tecumseh motor will it run with rear mulch switch off and either wired together or left open?

If you are getting spark, it should run, usually safety switches connect to ground out the coil to give no spark.

Replaced keyway but lawnmower still will not start.

The last one I worked on needed a new coil, was not getting spark. Check to see that yours is getting a spark, also check to see that the coil is close enough to flywheel, since you changed the key way. I assume that you removed the flywheel.
