Question about Garden
I have a Craftsman 2, 11hp snowblower with electric start. The problem I have is that it's got no spark. I do have fresh fuel and have replaced the spark plug, what next?

Not sure if your looking for a parts manual or a user manual but if you go here you can find the parts manual:

First take the carb off of the engine and then remove the bowl, carefully take the float off paying special attention to the needle and how it is attached to the float. Next, lightly blow air into the fuel inlet while holding your finger over the spot where the needle goes in. Use a bread tie with the paper scraped off. Stick the wire through the pick up tube at the bottom of the carb. Find any other holes and probe those holes with the wire. Then thoroughly wash the entire carb with carb cleaner then blow the whole carb off. Then put the float and needle back in making sure that when putting the bowl back on that it seats tightly all the way around the rubber gasket. Also, just before you put the bowl on turn the carb upside down to see if the float is sitting level. If it is put the bowl on, If not then the spot where the needle sits on the float has to be bent one way or the other just a little until the float sits level. After the bowl is put in place, the nut that holds the bowl on the threaded area should have two possibly three holes plus the hole down the center, probe all holes with the wire. put everything back on the motor and try again. If it still won't run then you will need a carb kit.

SOURCE: I have got a Craftsman model 917.270821 19.5 electric start 42" mower and cant get it to start I have replaced the starter and had the battery checked and all is good there, but dont seem to be gettin
check the wires from the back of the ignition and also the small wire that connects to the starter, if you get a 12v test light check each wire individually by holding the test light on the wire and have somebody turn the key, the test light should come on if the power is going through the wire.
If there is no power the ignition may need replacing

pull the flywheel and check if the key(latter models the flywheel itself will need replaced if stripped)is damaged. This is a possibility.

I have a Troy-Bilt push mower that does the same.
Try this - Run the mower until the point of quitting. Keep the hood up and be ready to remove the gas cap. As soon as you feel it start to stutter like it's going to quit, unscrew the gas cap and see if it comes back to life and doesn't quit.
If that works, then what is happening is that the gas in the carburetor bowl is getting depleted faster than the tank can provide it, possibly because of a clogged vent that's supposed to allow air back into the gas tank as gas is used.
You can try running with the gas cap not quite tight, to let some air seep in that way, but that's more prone to sloshing leaks. You could also try drilling a hole in the gas cap - about 3/16" is plenty, and stuffing a piece of natural sponge in to keep the gas in and dirt out. Synthetic sponge will deteriorate in gas.
