Murray rider, will not start just spins and spins

My murray 30 inch rider will not start. I thought it was a low battery because it would kinda of drag at first. So I put it on the slow charger for 12 hours. I then tried to start it and it would spin and spin but will not catch. After 3 or 4 times then it started to drag again. Any suggestions?

    When you say spin do you mean not engage engine?

It sounds like you either need a carburetor rebuild or you may have old gas. All manufacturer's school this year they have told us that any gas over 30 days is considered bad gas. You may need to replace the spark plugs; air filter and I would think about a new battery(at least one with 300 CCA).

Just replaced head gasket, now has to much compression and won`t wind over fast enough to start. have had starter checked and seems ok .10.5 hp briggs and stratton motor in a murray 32 inch ride on lawn...


A head gasket will not greatly increase the compression in a a Briggs motor.

My question is Why did it need a head gasket to begin with?
Will bet it was not running...

A more likely cause if not a fuel problem is to check engine oil if that is good remove the wire from the low oil sensor and see it it will start up for you.

If you locate the model number of the tractor, go to www.murray.com and enter the number under support. It will bring up a Owners Manual which shows the routing as well as a lot of other good information. The model number is formatted something like this: 123456a78b substitute the numbers for your own tractor when you enter them at the Murray site. The model number is generally located on the rear of the tractor frame or somewhere under the seat.
