I have the same mower, 18.5hp and mine is leaking oil from the fuel pump. I replaced the fuel pump and the same issue. Sears came out and could not duplicate the problem. Changed all the oil, plug, filter(s), etc and ran for about 2 weeks...now it is doing it again. At $100 a whack, Sears is making a killing on saying I don't know.

Craftsman tractor lt2000 with 17hp Kohler won't start. Ran fine last week. Rebuilt carb, changed oil, and new plug & fuel filter month ago. Has spark and fuel. Cranks but won't fire.


Hi Mike:
It's trying to make you crazy.
I have a model YT4000 and it is a PITA to start when cold.
I pull the air filter, toss in a bit of gas to prime it, and it starts instantly.

I'd suggest that you give yours another try. 3 or 4 times of a couple of seconds each. If it doesn't go, pull a spark plug and see if it is wet or dry. Wet indicates getting gas but no spark. Dry indicates not getting gas.
While you have the plug out, check the spark... Hot & blue.
Hope this gives you some more to work with.

I HAVE A CRAFTSMAN GARDEN TRACTOR WITH A KHOLER ENGINE MODEL CV730-0029. WHEN THE ENGINE IS RUNNING IT SMOKES QUITE A LOT. I CHANGE THE SPARK PLUGS, FUEL FILTER, AIR FILTER, OIL FILTER AND OIL AND I


First you need resolve the carburetor issue. With it leaking fuel it can flooding the engine causing it to smoke. The leaking can dilute the engine oil by overfilling the crankcase causing smoking and other damage, Once carburetor issue is resolve and it still smokes the initial 10 minute start-up after the rebuild then a compression and leak down will need to done to determine if you have blown head gasket, bad rings, or other problems.

Oil leaked out


Most utility pumps use mineral oil, but more importantly how did it run out? If a seal was bad the oil should have been milky. It will overheat without proper oil level.
