Yes. It has flywheel where the inertia needed is stored
it will run better if the cutter disc without the blades is
still attached as it acts as a bigger fly wheel

SOURCE: Craftsman lawn mower can not run without pumping the red button

Hello,

The fact you need to keep pushing the RED or "Primer" button says that your engine is running too lean ie. not getting enough gas.

You probably have a carburator problem due to the old gas gumming up the inside of the carb. The gum and dirt is clogging some of the internal passages of the carburator. It will need to removed from the engine and cleaned. The carburator is held to the engine by 2 bolts and is simple inside. Carefully clean the carb. with either carb. cleaner or laquer thinner or similar good solvant. Reinstall and you should be fine.

Also be sure to check your air filter and replace if dirty.
The red button is a "primer" that pumps extra gas into the engine. It is normally used only only for statrup so if need to use it while the engine's running, you're running too lean.

SOURCE: Lawn mower will not start and run

Sounds like a clogged carb or a cracked primer bulb. I would install a carb rebuild kit and new primer bulb if your mower uses one.

SOURCE: Does Not drive, belt position not sure is correct,

"belt position not sure is correct," from your description above

The first thing to do would be make sure belt position is correct, connected and tight.
This system is quite simple, the belt goes in the pulley on the engine shaft and the pulley on the transaxle only, nothing else. Using a short piece of rope or anything else readily available, temporarily tie down the safety bail (handle) and engage the drive handle. Now check your belt, it should be fairly tight and you should not be able to turn the transaxle pulley without considerable effort, if it is easy to turn, replace the belt. Now release the safety bail (handle)
If the drive belt seems to be working okay as above, remove the front wheels and inspect the gear teeth in them. If the outer half of the teeth are worn down more than 1/2 the original size as compared to the inner half, replace the wheels.
While you have the wheels off, if you have a couple of blocks of wood or similar items, set one under each corner of the front of the main frame outside the arch of the blade and start the engine, engage the drive and observe the pinion gears, they should both be turning. If they are not, then you have a bad transaxle and are going to have to either replace it , use it strictly as a push mower, or replace the mower.

Sounds like you will need to clean your carburetor.
Sometimes you can get by with priming it a few times, and letting it
run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,
but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
If the mower is over a couple years old, then I also recommend that you
buy and install a new carburetor repair kit, because the diaphragm will
get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, count the
number of turns it takes to seat the jets from their original position.
That way when you go to put the jets back in, you know how many turns
they were in/out.
Please do not forget to rate me, Thanks
Good Luck, I hope this helped

SOURCE: RE: Lawn mower blades will not engage

This sounds like a faulty ground condition, the PTO clutch requires a ground provided by the chassis wiring harness to function and a ground for the ignition switch to kill fire to the coils. The other components work as they should because the voltage regulator, fuel shutoff solenoid and starting interlock system have their own grounds. The ignition switch in these mowers is a large round plastic switch not capable of grounding itself, it should have a black wire leading from the terminal marked "G" on the backside of the switch.

to diagnose a faulty ground you'll need a basic 12V test lamp:

Unplug the switch and and install a the test light clip on the positive terminal of the battery, probe the ground wire in the unplugged harness that corresponds with the "G" terminal only. If the ground is good the lamp in the test light will illuminate brightly, if poor or faulty the lamp will not light or be noticeably dim.

Further verification of a faulty ground or failed PTO switch can be tested at the PTO Clutch harness, turn the key on, engine NOT running, and pull the PTO Switch to the engage position, with the test light clipped onto the Negative Battery terminal or chassis, back probe the connected PTO clutch terminals. If the PTO switch is good and the ground is good then Only one terminal will illuminate the lamp, if both wires illuminate the lamp then the ground is faulty, if no lamp illumination then a loss of power is suspected, check the terminals on the PTO switch and Ignition switch for power.

Typical Ground termination locations are on the frame near the rear of the tractor frame, above the transmission, in the steering column area and near the solenoid, check for a loose or corroded eyelet terminal, broken wire, or a missing fastener in these areas.

Loud noise metal against metal sound


Check under your mower and see if the blade sheild has bent in towards the blade. This could be your problem. If so take a hammer and tap the sheild back in place. GOOD LUCK.
