If it is spitting black smoke, it is getting too much fuel. Try taking off bottom of carb assembly to get at the float. Make sure that the float doesn't have a hole in it and that the needle is in place

Why is my craftsman running rough?


Black smoke means it is running rich. Too much fuel or not enough air. I doubt that it is an air issue. Check the float and carb.

Sounds like you are running it with the choke on - is it spitting black smoke?

Lt1050 black smoke after 15 minutes


The black smoke and black spark plugs indicate that the engine is running very rich (ie too much fuel). This could be caused by the choke not opening fully after the engine starts and the fuel mixture is too rich OR the fuel mixture setting is opened too far.
Check the choke lever, make sure the choke is fully open when the choke is in the running position.
When the engine is running with the throttle is in the 3/4 rev position then adjust the fuel mixture to get the highest RPM.

Run out of fuel . been sitting for a couple of days, fueled up checked oil ,started, ran but was like as if choke was stuck on .its due for 100hrs service but cant get it in for another 4 weeks . cleaned...


Sounds like when it ran out of fuel it sucked up some dirt at the bottom of the tank.you will have too take carb off and clean it out and make sure float is not stuck.I hope this helps.

I have CraftsmanLT1000 lawn tractor, Smokes heavily.


Many times a dirty air filter will cause this on this style of engine. When the filter is plugged, it creates a 'rich' fuel condition, and the engine smokes heavily, the excess carbon is drawn into the air filter, and plugs it even more.

check spark plugs, air filter, fuel filter, choke linkages (for full choke/no choke operation) and crankcase oil.

Crankcase oil can become fuel contaminated, thus overfilling the crankcase and filling the crankcase breather with raw oil/fuel, and this is drawn into the air filter, plugging it, and starting this senerio.

If there is fuel in the crankcase oil, drain completely, and refill with fresh oil. Then you need to look towards the carb for an inlet needle sticking, broken, worn.

Starts but won't stay running


It sounds like you are getting a vapor lock.
Try getting the fuel line and fuel fillter away from the motors heat.This will cause the fuel to boil and give you trouble. Check all your electrical connections for that clicking problem. Make sure everything is clean and tight. Check your spark plug gap.

Spitting and sputtering


mine did the same, I found out that the high speed jet was clogged, I pulled the fuel line off the filtor(going to the carb), stuck the line into a mixture of half gas half carb cleaner, I fanned it up and in 2 or 3 minutes it started running well, hope this helps.
