Probably need to change carb diaphragms and service carb. If you have left fuel in over winter it can damage diaphrams

Try replacing the igniter since it appears you have a thermal issue.

Lawn tractors often have a manual shut-off valve for the fuel. Be sure it is all the way open.

Agree with Tomshaw. Also stop using ethanol gas (if you are) as this can damage diaphragms.

Have gas in oil - will not start


Gas in oil is usually a symptom of flooding, caused by a stuck needle valve or damaged float in the carburetor. But 65 hours is awfully "young" for this problem.

Cranks up and runs fine ,then starts cutting out then runs fine and starts cutting out again


I am no pro but my suggestion to you is if you have changed your spark plug recently check the gap on it and make sure it is right and make sure is the right spark plug for it. Also check the oil if it is low the motor as it gets hot will start to sputter or if it has to much oil it will have an air lock and blow you Lhead gasket after a while. Another thing to check is the air filter to make sure it is clean and check the timing with this if you don't trust your self ask an repair expert for your brand of mower.

Mower runs ok until i engage cutting blades then engine starts to cut out and backfire


Could be a few reasons for this..
First try a new spark plug, new gas filter, clean the air filter and check the gas line for cracks or leaks..
If the issue still exists - try spraying some carb cleaner into the intake while it is running in short controlled bursts..
Or the carb might need to be rebuilt.. If it sat for a long time - the gas in the carb will shellac and cause it to not work properly.. Or it could be a bad float in the carb..

Good luck..

I have a Craftsman lawn tractor 21.5 hp, model no. 917.272463. The engine starts well, but while running it spits and sputters every second or so, whether at idle or at full throttle. I changed the fuel...


Try changing the its oil-seals. The problem lies there. It may be damaged or the oil-seals are now smaller than its is used to and it is because of the heat. The oil-seal are rounded things that are made of rubber.
