Question about Craftsman 20 hp 42 in. Deck Lawn Tractor - CA Model
The lawn tractor turns over, but won't start. Getting Spark and appears to be getting fuel. Just seems to backfire through the carb. Had it all apart, cleaned everything but still won't start. Pulled fly wheel and checked and cleaned out coil area. Checked shear pin, everything looks ok. Not sure what else to do. Any suggestions.
Does it have a manual fuel shut off or a electric selenoid type

I solved the problem after buying carb and fuel pump rebuild kits.The carb kit didn't fit anyway, but didn't need it. The problem was in the fuel filter. I had forgotten the problem happened when I ran out of gas. Inside the fuel filter is a washer held in place by a spring. Without fuel it apparently lost pressure and the washer slipped out of place about 1/2", which was enough to let all the gas through that could. The rebuild kit had a new rubber gasket. I won't let it run out of gas again.
