Question about Champion International Champion& Small Engine Spark Plug 8 Pack

My riding lawn mower won't start. New battery (cables & connections are clean), new filter, plug, rebuilt carb. It's getting spark but won't start? I cleaned the magneto and flywheel. Any other ideas?

    Every thing is new. I figured out the problem. When I adjusted the remote throttle, I lined the hole in the governor up right, but I had gone beyond fast and was on choke. I re-adjusted it and changed the oil and it fired right up! I had major gas in the crankcase oil. Now if I knew where to hook the tach dwell tester to, I could set the idle at the recommended setting instead of guessing! Thanks for the help.

    How fresh is your gas? Make sure the fuel filter is clean.

Spray starting fluid into the air box if it starts and dies out there is a fuel delivery problem if the mower has a petcock fuel shut of valve disconnect the fuel line after the petcock and hold a container under the hose turn on the valve to ensure gas flow to carb if there is no petcock valve I would still check the line to carb make sure gas flows through the hose to carb.

Hi I did a tune up ,changed and checked every thing I done ..too I changed the oil ,oil filter ,gas filter air filter ,got a new battery changed the plugs there new too...even a new belt new key ...but...


Spark and gas??? Must have both. Pull spark plug wire and check for spark. If you have spark, check gap on spark plug. Check the bowl on carburetor. loosen bowl screw to see if gas is coming out. If you have gas coming out, carb needs to be taken off and cleaned or rebuilt.

Valve clearances will also effect the decompression valve in the engine, if they are too wide the valve lifter will not work and the battary will not have enough energy to crack the engine.

Recheck spark when the unit cuts out. I am gonna guess you spent a lto of money chasing a bad coil! When a coil starts to go bad they become temperature sensitive. Time does the rest!

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..

Riding Mower will not start


You need to check a few things. The spark first, you need to check if it is running correctly, does it have spark, by doing this: take out the spark, put it against a metal surface and pull the pull start if it spark, your good if not you need a new spark plug. Clean out your airfiilter it migth help too. Buy some carb and choke cleaner squirt it up theough the airfilter hole, and start the engine, this will clen the carb. yOU MIGHT NEED TO TAKE OUT THE CARB AND CLENA I OUT THROUGHOULY!!! Try that and it whould work after all these steps!

Riding mower having problems starting then runs roughly


I would bet you have a fuel problem. Either the carb is clogged and dirty or needs adjustment. Try opening the screw on the bottom of the carbuerator about a half turn see if that improves it. Also check the air filter and clean it.
