Question about Craftsman 17.5 hp 42 in. Deck Lawn Tractor - CA Model

1 Answer

I have a John Deere GX 255 Garden Tractor with a 20 horse power Kawasaki Engine. The engine will sputter under load like it is running out of gas. I have changed the fuel filter and air filter and replaced the gas and it has not made a difference. Also, how often do the valves need to be adjusted and how do you adjust them.

You most likely have a gummed up carbeurator. Go to any auto parts store and get a bottle of a product called SeaFoam which is a fuel additive. Follow the directions on the bottle and it will most likely clear up your problem in just a few minutes of operation.
