Wont start unless i pull a plug out

I have a 25 v twin craftsman mower. when i was mowing, it made a loud popping sound. then it went balls to the wall. now it only starts when i pull a plug out. i was told this means i have bad valves or a bad cam. is this true. my only question is why would it start then after i pull a plug out?

It sounds like the key way worn, tweaked a bit eg: shear pin. You have to pull the top cover, fly wheel cover. remove the fly wheel and replace the key way.

I have a briggs and Stratton 22 hp Intek V-twin engine on our Craftsman riding mower. After about 30 minutes of mowing the engine suddenly began to run rough, loud and out of sync.


my thought is the valves are out of adjustment. that is the popping you hear or backfiring. i think if you take off and clean the carburetor and set the valve lash it will probably run like a new one.

Was mowing the lawn when all of the sudden i heard a pop and the steering went on the mower. The steering wheel just spins and the rod underneath the engine is just hanging


There is probably a ball joint connection that broke, or something could have just came loose. Not a hard repair, if you are not mechanically inclined, any mower shop can fix it, or if you have a neighbor that works on cars etc can fix it easily.

Have a 20 HP twin cylinder KOHLER engine on CRAFTSMAN mower.


If you are able...have someone do a compression check on the engine. Usually if a mower is loosing power and it is a twin cylinder engine, one of the headgaskets may be blown.
