Do you have spark? There are two things to look for when any engine won't start....fuel & spark, Take your plug out and lean it up against the metal of engine...turn it over and see if you see a good blueish spark.

No spark? Could be the plug, safety switch, coil

Next squirt a little gas into spark plug hole, replace the plug...will it fire up? If so...start working your way back down the fuel system....carburetor, fuel lines, fuel filter and gas (is gas old or new? is there any water in it?)

try that...www.nnyparts.com

My Craftsman riding lawnmower will not crank. I chgd the battery, but the engine will not attempt to crank. It also appears to be in gear even though it's in neutral


First you have to solve the "in gear" problem. No mower will crank if the drive is engaged. You have to see what is keeping it in gear and once you solve that, it will crank. I have an automatic, so I don't know how yours operates. There may be a cable or rod that moves the transmission into neutral. Look at how your clutch or brake pedal operates to determine what is not happening.
Write back.
