Question about Garden
Please be more specific! Make, model, sometimes a partial series number helps a lot.
Was it stored with fuel in it for more than a month?
When was the last time the gas tank got purged?
What's your fuel filter look like? Can you put a finger on it? If you can, replace it yesterday.
If a full flow lubrication engine with oil filter, when was the last oil change?
Is your combustion chamber pressure relief system TOO relaxed due to gummed lifters from poor oil maintenance? If your valves do not move, you'll get a spark, but no fuel or smell of fuel no matter how much you crank it over.
Will it start with a tablespoon of gas poured into the throttle bore or with carb cleaner/starting fluid then die?
If equipped, does your fuel shutoff solenoid still work?
Have you tried sitting in the seat, foot on brake, blade clutches disengaged?
Usual first time out of the barn stuff should include:
New Filter for air and oil, and if needed, the pre-filter sock over the air filter cartridge(s). New oil for crankcase and Hydrostatic axle - check manual - there might be a filter and a magnet to clean in your gearbox!
New plug. Fresh gas. And a bicycle pump...
If your tires are filled, it's easier to push it to the repair center. ;)
