It should fire right up. You won't know till you try. We had a water pump running on the dock jetting poles down in the mud. The pump vibrated off the dock and in it goes, running, I grabbed it by the hose and pulled it up, It fired right back up and kept on going. Never missed a beat. We thought it was going to **** in water and never run again. Honda's, can't beat em. Hope this helps.

18 hp craftsman 2000 smokes when cutting on a side hill


Wanda, make sure oil is not over full, oil in crankcase could be running to the intake of carb., valve guides or piston drenching an excess amount of oil on them causing the smoke. As long as mower does not smoke when driving on near level surface, mower should be OK. These engines were really not designed to cut on steep grades.
2 stroke engines, the engines with gas/oil mix are the mowers that are safe to run on hills as they will not starve or over lubricate engines. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Tip

Safety For Riding Mowers


<span> <ul> <li>Do not give children rides on a riding mower, even with the mower blades not turning.</li> <li>Children may fall off and be badly injured or interfere with safe machine operation.</li> <li>Children who have been given rides in the past may suddenly appear in the mowing area for another ride and be run over or backed over by the machine.</li> <li>Do not mow with a riding mower in reverse unless absolutely necessary.</li> <li>You can be seriously injured or even killed if you use a riding mower on too steep an incline.</li> <li>Using a riding mower on a slope that is too steep, or where you don't have adequate traction can cause you to lose control or roll over.</li> <li>Always consult your operator's manual for safety messages concerning operation on a slope.</li></ul></span>

If it runs, make sure the oil level is correct and continue to run the mower.
The blade should be a little tight, you are turning the engine.

I am contacting you as I am a bit desperate for help. Please advise as to what should be done with regard to the Savio Skimmer Filter SS0000. At around 5pm when feeding the fish, I noted the skimmer...


This means that the filter or leaf basket is blocked. When the pump is off, the water levels will look fine, but when the pump pulls water through, even a partial blockage of the filter or basket limits flow so the level falls and eventually the pump 'sucks air'. Remove and thoroughly clean the leaf basket and filter. Good luck!
