I have a Poulan HD1842 Riding garden tractor. Last week i was mowing the yard, I started to run out of gas. I stopped and put in more gas. Tried to start the engine and all I got was backfire and it would not start. I have emptied the gas, and refilled, Changed the fuel line filter, cleaned the carburator. the engine is a Briggs and Stratton. Any advice???

I struck an object while mowing my yard and the tractor wont start or even crank what could the problem be?


start by disengaging the blade and putting the deck to it's highest position, prior to attempting to start the mower inspect under the mower deck making sure there is no Debee wedged interfering with the blade rotation, check your spindle's for play and inspect your mower and drive belts. once complete than give it a try. if by chance it does start but turns over you more than likely sheered the flywheel key.

I had a simmilar problem. tried the carb rebuild it was better but would still run out of gas. My solution was to put a wire tie around the gas return line from the carburator and pinch it off a little bit that put more gas available at the carb and the unit would stay running.

Poulan Pro model 185H42ST dies after 30-45 minutes mowing


Put a carb kit in it. If that does not work replace the gas cap they are supposed to breath and if they get clogged it will create a vacuum in the tank starving the engine for fuel.
