Tractor only runs with choke on , stalls when you take choke off


Hi there,

The choke cable needs adjusting. There is a strap holding the sleeve on the carb. loosen it and adjust the choke position, then tighten it up again.

Thats it

My craftsman 18 HP tractor model 917.274400 will not run


Sounds like something is clogged. It may need a new air filter or the carburetor may need cleaning out. Also I would check your fuel, if it is over 30 days old I would replace it. It may be losing compression and either need a new head gasket or the head bolts tightened when it is hot.
Good day.

Tractor won't stay running


You will have to pull the carburetor off and rebuild it. This means cleanig and adjusting. This should help your cause a bit. donnyb60
