Question about Garden

Open Question

I have a 25hp sears tractor with a 46'' deck. It has sat for three years without being started. I have replaced the battery and drained the gas and replaced it with clean gas. It will crank, but no attempt to start. I sprayed started fluid in the opening of the carb, but nothing happens. It is difficult to get to a shop, but it is possible. Any suggestions before I take it in. Jim

DId you remove the existing gas or just topped it off? If you topped it off, I would dump the fuel and replace the fuel filter, after that I would clean the carb (Spray cleaner). 
Good luck!

*cyliniod sticking... try banging on it with the blunt end of a good heavy screw driver / or the handle of a hammer. might free up the contacts, or it might be too rusted inside...

*yes to the first part about starting fluid...the starting fluid should have fired off the motor for a few seconds...so since you didnt get anything after this, it sounds like your not getting adequite fire to the cylinder (s) .
i would try a new spark plug since that would be the cheapest thing to start with first.

Have you pulled the filter out to see if it's clogged? The easiest way is to remove from the system and blow through the filter. If you can blow through easily then you might have a bad fuel pump.
Good luck!

SOURCE: 10 year old Craftsman Lawn Tractor won't start

I had a similar problem and found that the float was hanging up on the wall of the carb fuel chamber. I sanded lightly the outer edge of the float and never had the problem again. That was 3 years ago. Having a different problem now. After setting overnight in cold weather, 20's, engine turns over very slowly even with a new battery. Engine starts, but barely. Once running, everything seems fine. After shutoff, engine restarts quickly. Next morning, same thing happens. Anyone have any thoughts?

Check for cracked fuel lines, plugged fuel filter, if all ok, then check fuel pump.

there should be contact sears online service department for deck but if it is over 5 years old your going to have trouble finding a deck sears might have one but it will maybe 400.00 to 600.00 dollars thats a complete deck with everything on it all you have to do is install it
