Single cylinder engine doesn't have much adustment that you can play with. the best suggestion is to change the plug, since the mower starts and runs. that is most easiest and cheapest fix.

Why does my Troy Bilt Pony Mower deck keep running after it is disengaged


-The belt is too tight. It should be free when the engine is running.
-Adjust it. It'll take care the problem. (I'll say it'll need about 3/4" to 1 1/2 clearance)

Good luck

Mower start fine. Runs for 20 min or so and then runs ruff and shuts down. Restarts fine and shuts down appr. 5 mins later. Has new spark plug,air filter, fuel filter and more than enough gas.


It's one of two things. My first thought is that you have a clogged gas cap. Try loosening it when the mower starts to run ruff. If it smooths out again and runs fine, then you know that the carburetor is not venting properly. Either buy a new gas cap or clear the breathing holes in the cap, if possible.

The only other thing it can be is that your Ignition Coil is going bad. A bad Coil, once it gets hot, will shut down. But it usually takes longer than 5 minutes for them to cool down well enough to start back up.

My Vote is the cap!

Good Luck!

Hi, you are correct, the key will be sheered. Remove the top shroud and flywheel nut, then while pulling upwards on the flywheel have someone strike downwards on the crankshaft with a hammer and brass drift. Do not use a steel drift as it will damage the crankshaft. Hope this helps, regards Phil.

Drain the fuel or when you remove the float bowl bolt (also the main jet), then hold up on the float to keep the needle on the seat so gas won't go everywhere. When you have that brass bowl bolt off, clean it! Use nothing metal on it. Pay close attention to the small hole in the bottom and along the smooth unthreaded part at the other end. Use carb/choke cleaner to blast gum and dirt out of those very small fuel orifices. I recommend installing an inline fuel filter also. A shut off valve is recommended too, that way if the needle in the carb sticks open, the crankcase won't be polluted with gas. Usual symptoms on a clogged lawn mower main jet though, are after pushing primer bulb, engine runs about 3 seconds. Try the brass bolt cleaning and post back if needed.

Hard to start, when it does start only runs for a few seconds.


You need a full tuneup which means after the spark plug you need to do all of these and you will have a good running mower.
Drain gas tank.
Take carburetor off and clean it.
Pull the top off the engine and clean the flywhee maginets and the coil face with a small wire brush of emery cloth.
Clean screen in gas tank if there is one.
Fuel filter if the is one.
Be sure to check for a good spark after all this is done.
If this is all done you should have a good running mower.

Crafsman Eager 1 6.75 HP lawnmower wont start


I have an Eager 1, as well and when I try to pull the cord it does not turn at all. It's stuck. I hit a tree root and since then I have had problems with it. I have 2 mowers so it was not used last year at all. Gas was drained and it was stored in a shed. Anyway, I know nothng about mowers other than spark plugs, gas, oil, sharp blades and filters. Is the motor seized? Thanks
