SOURCE: replacing the blades on a craftsman dyt 4000

Not a hard job, but you will need a couple of tools. First, you will need a wrench that fits the nut that is holding the blade on. I prefer a closed end wrench, but an open end will do. Second, you will need a blade changing tool. The brand name is called a Blade Hog. It attaches to the deck and holds the blade in place so you can turn the nut. Raise the deck as high as it will go, attach the Blade Hog, and then loosen and remove the nut. Be sure and pay attention to which side is up on the old blade and put the new one on in the same manner.

hope this helps,
c

check fuel pump, remove fuel line to carb. turn motor over, if fuel does not spurt out fuel line replace fuel pump.

Before you get more into that engine I would suggest trying new gas especially if its been sitting for a while. Then I would try running some carb cleaner through it and see if that settles things down. If there is any water in the fuel it can cause those type of issues so try the simple fixes first then if all else fails go to the harder fixes.

you need to service your carb. it has a bowl on the bottom of the carb. it should have a screw or a nut holding the bowl in place some of the new ones have a spring clip. anyhow take it loose and there is some holes in the bolt that need to be cleaned out if tou dont have anything small enough homedepot and lowes sell a tip cleaning kit for cutting torches and it has some tiny wies that will work . some carbs have a screw in the middle of the hole after you take off the bolt look in the center and if it looks like a flat head brass screw then you can un screw that peice to and clean it thos tiny holes get cloged real fast get som carb cleaner and clean everything and the bowl it only takes gas 30 days to oxyzadize and it will leave behind a yellow scale like plaque on your teeth and will foul up the whole thing . keep note when removing the bowl one side is lower so keep it the same direction when removing it will allow the float to settle down right to allow the gas to flow into the bowl. the float has a little valve that has a rubber tip on it and it can get stuck and not work right if things seem clean and still runs funny get a carb kit from truvalue o a lawn epair shop get all info off side of motor . when installing bowl if you have a screw with a spring out the bottom of bowl screw all the way inn then turn back out 2 1/2 turns to adjust proper flow if screw is on side of carb turn same amount if too much gas is idling rough turn screw in some hope this helps

My Sears riding mower chokes itself out after warmed up,


Careful with the high octane.. That can burn a hole in the piston..

It might be fludding.. At the bottom of the carb should be a bowl.. One bolt at the bottom.. Take it off and clean it.. Spray some carb cleaner up in there where the float is..

If that dont do it --

Maybe the float is bad & taking in fluid..

If it has sat for long piriods of time - the carb might need to be cleaned & rebuilt..

When gass sits in there for a long time it shalacks and wont work correctly..

Pop off the carb & take to your local small eng shop. Shouldnt cost to much..

My briggs & stratton will not start


If the engine fires on starting fluid, then you are missing fuel, so you need to start with the source, is fuel getting to the carb? if not why not. Check fuel lines, shut off valves and filters.
If it is, is the carb float allowing the bowl to fill?
If there is fuel in th float bowl, then you need to look at mixture and idle settings.

hope this is of some help.
