Question about Ariens Riding Lawn Mower. 42 in. 19 HP Kohler Hydrostatic 960460024
I have to remove the air cleaner cover and spray ether in the carb if it has been sitting turned off for more than 30 minutes. This same issue happened on our previous Ariens lawn tractor so we replaced it within 30 days of purchase. Now this one is doing the same thing. I have found a work-around by drilling a small hole in the air cleaner cover (large enough for the ether spray tube) and then covering with a piece of duct tape but that is not the preferred method. If there is such a manual choke cable that can be installed and someone knows the part number that would be appreciated.
Most any auto parts store will have a manual choke conversion kit for about $10us.You will have to be a little creative to hook it up. But...your engine shouldn't need to be choked once it runs awhile and is still warm. I would look for other causes like binding linkages, unhooked springs and loose carburator mounting.

Dissamble carburator. Spray Carburator cleaner through passages, and wash out bowl. Dump gasoilne if old. Reassemble Carburator. PS count the turns on the two Jet (mixing) screws and place back into the same position after cleaning passages.

The little metal peice with the wire ataches to the float at the hinge part of the float, if you use yahoo type in tecumseh carburetor diagram then click on Parts and Diagrams and the web address is partstree.com it will show you a breakdown of a carb and how it goes together. It may not bee your exact carb but they are all pretty much the same. It also sounds like you may need to rebuild your carb. If you get it back together and it still leaks, I suggest you take it to a small engine repair shop and have them rebuild it for you only cause you need a special tool for the seat and the float will have to be set.

One of your safety switches are not being operated. There is one on the seat, one on the brake, one on the mower deck and some have them on the clutch. But check to make sure that they are all making.
