Question about Garden

1 Answer

I have a Toro GT 5 6.5 hp Tecumseh model #Lev 120 and it just quit. Checked everything. Good fire,turns over good but have a kickback while it's cranking. Everything else is working. Is there a wire somewhere that I am not seeing that goes to the kill switch?

Sounds like the blade hit something solid when it was running & then it had problems soon thereafter. It may have sheared the flywheel key & is not firing at about 7 degrees before (TDC) top dead center. Pull out the plug & put your thumb tightly over the spark plug hole to feel for compression as you slowly rotate the blade or pull on the starter cord. About 7 degrees before TDC is when you should get a spark. Maybe you can download a repair manual for it or have a friendly repair shop tell you when it is supposed to fire the plug.You may have to pull off the shroud over the pull cord/flywheel to see where the magnets are at TDC. I had this happen to my Lawn Boy after my grand son used the mower. A $3.00 new key solved the problem BUT it was a pain to take the top covers off. apart

Carburetor Cleaning TUNE UP of Toro 6 5HP Lawnmower with Tecumseh Engine

The above link will provide a video on how to clean the carb on the 6.5 hp mower. Before you go to that length, try putting some carb cleaner in the fuel tank and see if that corrects the problem. Also, as the video shows, make sure the spark plug is getting a good spark. If the spark is weak , the fly wheel may be rusted, ot the magneto is bad.

If you have changed sparkplug and coil and cleaned flywheel, you probably have a kill wire problem. Disconnect kill wire from coil and try again.

It sounds like the starter drive may be jammed. It should not be engaged unless you are using the starter motor. Take the spark plug wire off, put on heavy leather gloves, and try turning the blade by hand to dislodge the starter drive. If it does dislodge, plug the spark plug wire back up and try the pull start again.

let it surge, it will usually get better as it warms up. These 6.5 Hp engines are fine except they have an cheap badly designed carburator. Nothing can be done about this problem. They all surge eventually.
