Question about John Deere 420,1020,2010,2020,2510,2520 Tractor Float
My 2510 gas wont start if I let it set for a few weeks. If I shoot it with starting fluid it fires right up ?????? any help appreciated thanks
Gasoline may be leaking away from the carburetor during the weeks layover or it may be evaporating away also.
I'm thinking you've already got your solution, but I'l like to add a twist to it to prevent future problems. Shut off your gas supply to the carburetor and let it run out and die when you start your weeks off for this mower. That way no gum deposits can form and mess with your air/fuel mixtures.
Then turn on the gas and give it a shot of starting fluid and forget all your possible troubles with gumming. I have a 1944 JD 'A' that I do the same thing with sans the starting fluid - because I don't need it. Those old puppies are still around running fine because this is standard operating proceedure with 9 out of 10 owners of these old steel machines. It's just the most trouble free way to get the job done - then and now.
