SOURCE: gas tamk removal john deere 115

I had the same thing happen. I got the tank out, but it wasn't easy. Take out the bolts out that hold the rear end on. Take off the two springs that support the seat. Take out the battery and the battery tray. Take out the 6 bolts that hold the black cowling and the front of the green platform to the frame. This will allow you to lift the seat platform far enough off the rear end to allow the tank to be pulled out through the side. You also have to remove the metal bracket which holds the front of the tank and has caused the tank to leak in the first place. New tank is $56.00 not installed. I used a soldering gun and melted the plastic back together. I think it will hold quit a while. I know this is a little sketchy, but It worked for me.

This could be a number or items from no spark to a faulty carburetor, a plugged up air filter, valves out of adjustment, poor gas, faulty spark plug.

First, see if your getting spark, how about taking the wire off a plug(s) and holding it about 1/8" or so away from the plug with some masking tape while you crank the engine. You should be able to see the spark jumping the gap, it helps if it is not too light outside. If you attempt to do this with your hands, you will get a spark jolt, it hurts, so use the tape and remember, the engine could start so proceed with caution.
If you have no spark there, then you ignition or magneto is faulty. This would be unlikely in the broader scope of things. You will likely get spark. Make sure the plug is clean, take it out and inspect. If it is covered in gunk well clean it. It will smell like raw gas but you already know that. Change the plug if in doubt.

Remove and clean and replace the air filter.

If you have spark, and a clean filter it is likely a carburetor problem, Depending on the carb, it could be the choke is faulty or, as per the below.

Depending on what model you have there is a float assembly in the carburetor that stops the fuel from flooding the carb and air intake. The gas tank is higher then the carb right, so if you dont have a mechanism for stopping the fuel from leaking out the hole that goes into the engine, it will all leak out right, as into the fresh air intake because its easier than going into the engine. So, there is a miniature float assembly, sort of like your bathroom toilet float to stop the water. Well there is a small wedge type needle that seats into a hole and it is attached to a float. As the gas rises in the bowl, it pushes up the float, sealing the gas into a chamber, as you use more gas, the float lowers and more gas goes in. So ,there is dirt jammed into the float bowl sealing needle, just a little, thats all it takes. So, shut off the gas somehow, hopefully you have a valve, or squeeze the rubber line, then undo the float chamber, its one nut on the bottom. Clean carefully. The needle, little spring and float assembly are delicate. Also, the needle could be worn from engine vibration, so it may need a new needle. It would help if you described the engine and carb though.

I posted that as a solution to another problem, but yours may also be the valves need adjusting. Depending on the amount of hours, say over 200, then the valves timing will likely be off a bit. Check the clearances with a feeler gauge, it is not as difficult as it seems. Check your Owners manual for the clearance at top dead center. TDC is when you take the plug out and watch the piston arrive at the top of the cylinder through the spark plug hole when you are turning the engine over (do this by hand, battery off. Make the adjustments with the valve cover off. Follow the instructions.

Hope some of this helps.

I have googled LT155 and came upon john deere LT155 lawn tractor(noncurrent). It took me to John Deere's site. I put in your model number and it had several catagories. I would try the alphabetical list, go to B and look for traction belt.
Good day.
