Craftsman Lawn Tractor, 18 HP, 44" Cut; No SWtart!

I have a Craftsman Lawn Tractor, Model # 917.255919, 18 HP, 44" cut, possibly made in 1991.(?) Will not Start. New ignition switch and new solenoid, yet no click in solenoid. Battery is fine at 12.5 DC Volts. Will start when jumped between solenoid/starter terminal and Battery Positive Post, bypassing Ignition starter switch at Starter Solenoid.
Any help would be most appretiated.

Thanks in Advance,

~Stillin~

SOURCE: I changed the oil in my Craftsman Lawn Tractor

Below is excerpt from the owners manual:

SERVICE REMINDER/HOUR METER
Service reminder shows the total number
of hours the engine has run and flashes to
indicate that the engine or mower needs
servicing. When service is required, the
service reminder will flash for two hours.
To service engine and mower, see the
Maintenance section of this manual.
NOTE: Service reminder runs when the ignition
key is in any position but "STOP". For
accurate reading, be sure key remains in the
"STOP" position when engine is not running.

It should reset the 2 hours has expired

My Craftsman 42" lawn tractor


I would suggest checking your owner's manual. There is a leveling process and my Craftsman wasn't leveled at the factory. Once I leveled mine, it cut fine. If you can't find it in your manual, google leveling craftsman mower deck.

I have an 18 HP Craftsman tractor (model 917255980) that will not start. If i remove the fuel line from the carb, gas does not run out freely, hoever, by applying suctin on the line gas does flow breifly....


The pump is not good,to test it,you take out the out fuel pipe start the engine ,see if fuel is coming out fully to the pipe,if sometimes it comes and cut,this means the fuel pump is not working properly.You have to change it.
