You did not post any information about the motor. There is a specific gap between the magneto and the flywheel and also the flywheel has a woodruff key to make sure the timing is correct. Check for spark, check gap on magneto and check magneto if you don't have spark.

Riding mower won't start, new starter, spark plugs an fuel filter. What should I check next?


If it's carbureted, make sure the bowl float isn't stuck.
Another possible idea, and not saying that this is it, but many small engines have a small sensor that will hour allow an engine to run without having an adequate oil level.

Do you have to prime a fuel pump after it has been rebuilt


when you put a new fuel pump on whatever type mower you are working on,yes its good to prime it a little so that your not cranking the juice out of your battery and easier on starter.when you prime it ,myself I put the new fuel pump on,and I pull the plug out and put a little fuel in cylinder head so when it fires it pump the fuel up faster to your carb! good luck!

I have a Craftsman, 6.75hp, SP, model #917.377580 lawn mower. Was running good but, won't start any more. Don't know if or where the fuel filter would be. Thinking it might be the solid state...


If you know that you have a good plug, and you don't have spark at the plug, then it is a bad Ignition Coil (Module). If you need further help, let me know.

Good Luck!

Scotts by john deere riding mower - 220 hours, 17.5 HP, 42" cut, Briggs & stratton engine -- New Strarter, new battery, good fuel... will turn over but engine will slow down then stop, will not...


Very high likelihood you have fuel line problems. Disconnect primary fuel line from bottom of fuel filter and blow compressed air back up the fuel line to the gas tank. This will clear the line of any trash. Reconnect fuel line to filter. Then remove spark plug and spray a couple of sprays of WD-40 into the cylinder.. Re-install spark plug and then restart. WD-4- will act as a starter fuel and will start the engine for enough rounds to get fuel pump to working to normal run.. Good luck.

I have briggs and stratton powered mower with the 18.5 v-twin ohv intek engine modle 407777 type 0121-E5 CODE 000512ZYG MY PROBLEM IS THAT MY CRANKCASE IS FULL OFA GAS OIL MIXTURE THE OIL FILTER ALSO...


When the float in the carb sticks, it allows fuel to drain into the cylinder, that runs pass the rings into the crankcase. When the crankcase is full the pistons cannot go down, and the starter won't turn the engine. Drain all the oil gas mixture, and refill with proper oil. Replace float, needle and seat in the carb bowl. Throughly clean fuel passages, and bowl. If motor won't turn, remove spark plug and turn over engine a few times to remove gas oil mixture from the cylinder too.

Lawn Tractor won't start Craftsman LT1000 17.5 OHV


The starter bendix is not engaging properly the bendix pushes the starter gear into the flywheel gear when the starter spools up, it may need minor lubrication.
It sounds like the engine is not getting fuel as it should, the main jet may be restricted from varnish if she stumbles under a load especially if the plug tips are white after running for 1/2 an hour.
Remove the float bowl and clean the jet, make sure the fuel is still good, gas that smells like a library is more like varnish and less like fuel.
