Question about Poulan 42-Inch Steel Deck 17.5 HP Briggs & Stratton I/C Engine With 6 Speed
I have had an on going problem, since I bought this mower brand new. It is a Poulan with a Kohler engine.The starter will only turn the engine to top dead center and not passed it. I have changed out the battery several times, thinking this was the problem. I finally went with the most powerful battery available and it won't turn the engine over, just to TDC. I have done a continuity test on all of the wires. Replace the solenoid. I've done a voltage drop test on my present battery. It's fine. I've checked and made sure I have a good ground connection. I am bepinning to suspect the starter has never been strong enough to turn the engine over. It did seem to work okay for the first 10-15 starts. After that is when my problem started. I'm ready to scrap it and buy another brand. Any suggestions?
Is the engine flooding the cylinder with gas and hydro locking it? Try pulling the spark plug and seeing if the engine can be turned over and keep note if any gas comes out.
