Question about Craftsman 17.5 hp 42 in. Deck Lawn Tractor - CA Model
Replace the fuel line, and siphon as out of tank make sure no debris in there had the same problem with mine should do the trick

Unfortunately the original fuel pumps are notorious for this problem. I have a 17.5 tractor that did the same thing. I disconnected the fuel line at the carburetor, placed in a mason jar, started the tractor and barley got a couple ounces of fuel.
The new pump had been improved internally to prevent the fulcrum mechanism from wearing out.
You should be able to get a cup of fuel in the mason jar before the engine stalls from the carb running out of gas.
Try it out and let me know.
