You have a time problem.

Set the timing to factory spec and your trouble should go away.

This process involves lots of work, particularly if you dont have the proper tools.

You will probably have to remove the engine cover and fly wheel for starters.

Once inside, you will need to read the markings and know how to use a feeler gage.

You might find additional help at the web site of the engine manufacturer.

While I dont want ti discourge you, this might be better done by a mower repair place in your town.

Good luck on your project.

2007 riding mower John Deere backfires while trying to start will not start


Inspect/replace the air filter to ensure proper air flow.
Inspect/replace the sparkplug(s) to ensure proper firing.
Check the position of the "choke" (if equipped; & by the way, most riding lawn mowers do not use a primer bulb button to prime the engine before starting).

You have probably thrown the belt for the blades. If it continues to throw the bet check the tensioner.

My MTD Yard machines riding mower won't start.


Probably dead gas from sitting too long. Dump it out & put in fresh gas.Could have moisture in it. Pull out spark plug & crank it over several times after putting gas & let it sit a while to dry out or blow it out with compressed air. It should go.

This mower backfires. Will not start unless flywheel is advanced manually. Now it dies after running a few minutes. The fuel filter has been replaced, and air filter is not unduly clogged. What gives?...


for openers i would start by having someone check the valve clearances. sounds like you are out of time, and that is a common issue with a mower over 3 years old. if the intakes are opening way to late, and not far enough, you have a problem.

Riding mower will barely move


Sounds like it time for a tuneup. Air filter changed, Spark plugs replace and oil changed, plus sharpen the blades while you are at it.

Engin fogs the neiborhood with air filter on.


Sounds like it's pulling oil by the rings/valves -- the air filter is creating more suction. I would try a small amount of an oil additive for high mileage engines. Follow the mixing/proportion directions on the bottle. Sounds like this engine is "wearing out".
