Question about Craftsman 17.5 hp 42 in. Deck Lawn Tractor - CA Model
**Please Read *** Correction - I am not having teeth problems - not sure how that got in there.
I have a craftsman LT1000. The tractor was used 2 times since last summer. I have a Craftsman LT1000 - Tractor has been great no problems for last 5-6 years however; this year It suddenly started sputering and spitting and running uneven while under load. I replaced air filter, fuel filter, spark plug - which seemed to fix the problem for about 5 minutes. Until it starting running poorly again. I checked the spark plug (not fouled) and i checked spark plug is getting blue spark. However; Now she will not start. Original Fuel Filter didn't seem blocked (unable to get a replacement - discontinued according to SEARS Hardware - but same exact stock # as brand new mower :(!) Replaced with Briggs and Stratton Standard In Line Filter. (States fit's all 1/4" and 5/16" mowers up to 80HP. Now mower will not start. tried using original fuel filter however; same result will not start. ( I am stumped on this one! Help Please I'm not a mechanic so I would appreciate some help. I also replaced the original battery with a new Everstart. Not sure if these mowers have magnetos. Anyone have any experiences with regards to fuel filters I can provide model number if needed.
This sounds too easy of a solution but I had a like ptroblem with my Craftsman. I loosed the gas cap a bit and the rough running and stalling stopped. he vent on the gas cap that contains a turn over interrupt valve was plugged causing the gas not to flow. I took the cap apart and cleaned out the vent hole though cleaning the holewith a paper clip would have worked as well. Anyway..it fixed my problem. I think my dirty hands of deris deposited the matera in the vent hole when filling with gas.
