Its possable that when you cleaned the bowl and float you got the grub out of the carb, but you might want to use carb cleaner fuel additive, you can genearlly pick it up for $5 for a can, its normally used for soaking parts and cars, so use about half what they say.

also, you might want to consider using some octane booster for a few tanks, as it will also help clean up any fuel residue from sitting over the winter.

Engine doesn't start and run...just turns over.

take the spark plug out and crank the engine over for 30 seconds to blow out any gas that may be in there. get another or a new spark plug and put it in and try to start it. maybe check compression to see if the valves are working properly. if you have spark and fuel and compression it should.

Mower will start but won't keep running, it will start right away but it will shut down again. it has very little gas on the gas filters the gas filter is new but it looks empty... can this be a fuel pump...

Yes it could be. I would disconnect fuel line from carb, put this end of fuel line over a bucket, then turn starter over to check fuel flow. This should tell you quickly if your pump is working or not. Good luck!

I have a 2005 Dixon zero turn mower the motor is hard to turn over but once it starts turning it turns fine when the motor starts it will only idle and not accelerate it has a 14.5 hp Briggs and Stratton...

sounds lie it's starving for gas.
Does this engine have a fuel pump or is the gas gravity fed???
Some engines this size do have fuel pumps.
I'd also take the bowl off the carburetor and check the Jet.

Toro str will not start, motor spins but will not fire

Ensure clean fuel. Always use Stabile in fuel. Follow fuel line from fuel tan to carb, ensure no leaks. Remove carb fuel bowl to check float operation. Have pliers to crimp line or use fuel shut off valve. Remove carb float bowl and clean. Float should hang down freely gas should flow. Push float up gas should cut off. Replace spark plug, ensure plug wire snaps on tight. Clean or replace air filter. Ensure oil is full, 30w oil. All mowers have low oil shutoff.

My MTD Yard machines riding mower won't start.

Probably dead gas from sitting too long. Dump it out & put in fresh gas.Could have moisture in it. Pull out spark plug & crank it over several times after putting gas & let it sit a while to dry out or blow it out with compressed air. It should go.
