Question about Craftsman 20 hp 42 in. Deck Lawn Tractor - CA Model
Take the carb off and remove the screws that hold the float on. Once you have that apart, the float should be pretty obvious. Toward the back of the float (where it hinges) there is a small spring and a pin. Orientate the carb in it's normal position the float should be freely in the down position (this is when fuel enters the carb.) the pin should be pushed up. Now, push the float up (this is when fuel stops coming into the carb). The pin should fall. There should be some tension (very little) that makes the float want to return to the down position. If anything is out of order, order a carb rebuild kit. If the carb is flooding, this means that the float is getting stuck in the down (open) positon and not floating. This happens very often with older floats. Newer ones are plastic and won't get fuel logged or covered in suit. Let me know if this helps and what happens. Good luck
