You should be fine, check your fuel filter and prime the motor before you start it. Might get a little smoke when you first start it but should be fine. Hope this helps. Let me know if I can help with anything else.

My Craftsman lawn tractor will run for a while and then stop then sometimes after sitting for a while will run again. What should I check? I added fuel additive to gas just incase the fuel was bad.


Drain the fuel tank. Dispose of the gasoline responsibly.
Replace the fuel line between the tank and the carburetor.
Put fresh gas in the tank. See how long it runs.

While you're at it, change the oil and remove any debris from
the cooling fins on the engine. It may be overheating.

If it still doesn't run, you probably failed to replace the fuel line.
Trust me, this is part of good maintenance for these machines.

I accidently put diesel in my John Deere riding lawn mower. How do I safely drain the tank. Or do I need to take the tank completely off? If so I need directions.


If you did not try to start it, you will need to siphon, pump or **** out the fuel tank. The last J.D. that I emptied the tank in I used a turkey baster to draw out the bad fuel. I guess you use what you got. Hopefully your fuel is pumped to the engine and the fuel line goes into the tank from the top. If so all you have to do is empty and replace with gas. If the fuel line drains the tank from the bottom and/or you tried to start it with diesel in it you will need to (after emptying the tank) remove the fuel line from the carb. and direct it to a container, remove the bowl nut of the carb. to drain carb. be ready to clean up a little spilt fuel catch if you can or have rags under and ready. Turn the ignition key for engine to turn over to operate the fuel pump and clear the line. Put a little gas in tank and flush fuel line by using fuel pump to clear. Change fuel filter and put everything back together. Remove and clean/replace spark plug. Test it. Inspect spark plug again if necessary.

If the gas won't even drain from the tank, try removing the gas cap. It has vent holes and if this is plugged, the vacuum won't let the gas drain. If that is the case, clear the holes.

How to drain the old gas from my 20.0 HP, 42 in. lawn tractor. Thank you, Nancy


Remove the fuel line from the engine and drain the old fuel into a container. Follow the fuel line from the fuel tank to the engine. Anywhere along that line where you can disconnect it do so. The fuel filter is a good place to disconnect it and then you can replace the fuel filter when you connect it back up.

Craftsman riduing tractor turns over but won't


If you have spark and compression, the only thing left is fuel.

Check that fuel is being deluvered to the carb (remove fuel line to carb and make provision to catch ejected fuel. Crank engine. Fuel should be pumped from the tank and out the open line at a good rate.

If this checks out (or there is no pump fitted, but there is fuel issuing from the pipe), check the electrical connector on the bottom of the carb. There should be battery voltage on this conection for the engine to run - if not - that's the problem.

If that checks out, the cut-off solenoid (fed by the connection you just checked) is suspect.

You need to rebuild your carburetor and fuel pump.
Once done, change the oil again.

You might want to consider adding a fuel shutoff valve to your fuel line between the tank and filter. It is a great convenience if you do your own repair work.
