4 cycle craftsman mini tiller won't start,makes clicking noise when I pull the pull cord


The clicking noise might be significant...

In order to start and run an engine needs compression, timing, the correct amount of fuel reaching the combustion chamber and a good quality spark.

Discovering why an engine will not start is a process of checking and ensuring all the items on the list are functioning correctly. When you have done that the engine will start.
If the engine doesn't start then it is wise to go through the list again because something got missed the first time - maybe there isn't as much compression as there should be, maybe a valve is sticking or bad, maybe the timing got messed up, maybe the spark isn't good enough...

Pulling the starter 50+ times is a lot of unnecessary wear and tear on you and the machine. Take a deep breath and start again, do the work and do it well and three or four pulls should be enough.

Good luck!

Have a Briggs and Stratten 4.0hp Lawnmower that starts but sputters. What can I do to get it running smooth...What is the Spark Plug GAP?


How old is the fuel? Drain old fuel, use premium fuel and change spark plug and maybe air filter. I start mine in the Spring using quickstart. It also starts and dies a few times and eventually keep running. Winterizing the machine in the Fall prevents most starting problems in the Spring. If this does not solve the problem, see a mechanic.

Craftsman gold 6.0 hp. walk behind lawnmower wont start


Back to basics, is the fuel in the tank good?( fill with fresh fuel ) does it have a spark at the plug?(remove the plug, earth against the cylinder, is there a spark,if not, replace the spark plug and try again ) does the plug wet with fue lafter pulling?( clean/service carb ) is the spark occuring in the correct place ( flywheel key sheard ) has the engine got good compression?

How do I test the Timing on my Craftsman 42cc/18" chainsaw? How di I set the Timing?


Ron Davis:

Your saw can be knocked out of time by a sudden stoppage (such as the chain popping off of the bar and stopping the saw suddenly). The flywheel has slipped on the driveshaft.

To correct the timing on your saw, first, you will need to remove the bar and chain. remove the side cover with the bar and chain. remove the engine from the engine housing, then remove the pull cord and spring assembly. The flywheel will be visible now. Use a puller to carefully remove the flywheel (don't crack the flywheel by putting the puller jaws on a weak part of the flywheel). Replace the small square key that fits between the flywheel and the crankshaft (it must fit snugly). Reassemble the saw, and the timing should be correct. the space between the flywheel and the magnetic pickup is very small (0.10") but the pickup can not touch the flywheel at any point. ( I have used a matchbook cover to get the proper spacing). The slots in the flywheel and the crankshaft must match exactly for the saw's timing to be correct. It's a time consuming process, but properly done, your saw will run again. The metal key that fits between the flywheel and the crankshaft can be purchased at any lawnmower repair shop or at Lowe's or Home Depot. Just make sure it is the exact same size as the original.

If you really suspect the timing is out, use a timing light to check, before adjusting anything.
What else happened when it initially stopped with no spark?

Get back to basics, run a compression check on the cylinder bores, these should be 150psi ish.

Check timing marks are in line.

Check for spark

Check you have fuel

It will be one of the above. A correctly timed engine with spark and fuel will start and should run.

Maybe try spraying easy-start into air intake? This rules out timing a spark to a degree if it fires up

So much to go at, hope this helps

I detected a problem in the ignition system: Izuka S125B starts OK but after few seconds stops. I checked there is no spark until a few trials, bike starts again, and again spark is missed. I wonder if...


the problem is with the timing chain which rotated the inlet and outlet valves in cylinder with the help of cam drives.
sometimes due to contineous operation of the engine the timing chain enlarges and due to which the timings of the valves changes awhich leads to the change in the ignition timings.
change your timing chain and it would be O.K
