Bumped into fence pole on right -front side of mower, backed up three feet and motor quit. Tried to start it but it just ran the battery down, checked fuel delivery system, it was o.k., pulled plug wire and checked for spark - no spark. I thought I may have smelled insulation burning but could not see any melted wires.

There are 4840 square yards in an acre and 9 square feet in a square yard (4840 x 9 = 43,560).
An acre is an old timers measurement used in agriculture...
it was 4 poles wide and 40 poles long. A pole is equivalent to sixteen and a half feet. So back then, an acre was a piece of farming land 660 feet long (220 yards or one eighth of a mile) and 66 feet wide (22 yards or one eightieth of a mile).
Acre is a measure of area, which would be square feet.
Feet are a measure of distance.
The best you could do is something like this:
An acre is 43, 560 square feet.
Draw/imagine a square or a rectangle that would cover that much area.
If it is a square, it would be (approximately) 208.7 feet on each side.
Its perimeter (the distance around it if you walk an imaginary fence around you acre-sized plot) would be 834.8 feet.
Trying to to figure out an acre of 'Circle' - hmmmmm???
Radius = 1/2 of Diameter
sorry, just can't wrap my head around this to come up with the correct equation.
maybe we can get lucky with some other brainiac taking what I did provide and come up with a solution for you?
Square - It would be 208.7 feet across if you walk across it, and the same if you walk the other way across it.
I am assuming you are talking about fencing in 3 sides of an area with each side being 25 feet long. Linear feet refers to only the running length of the fence. It doesn't care about height. For example, you fence will be 75 linear feet long...three sides each 25 feet. The price per linear foot already takes into account the fence height. For example, you say that the fence you want is about $15.00 per linear foot. For the sake of argument, say your fence is 4 feet high. If you were to change to a 3 foot high fence, the cost per linear foot would be less since there is less fencing material. If you wanted to up the height to 6 feet, the price would rise accordingly.
you may be hydro locked. pull your air filter and see if it's full of water. then pull your spark plugs and turn the engine over. see if you blow any water out of the cylinders. if you didn't damage it, you should be able to get it started with a new filter and spark plugs.
Hello Michael. Sounds like your burning oil. For any engine repair I start with the main three things: Compression, spark and fuel. Without these three things an engine will not run. Compression testors can be purchased at any parts store and are easy to use. You simply thread them into the spark plug hole and crank engine until needle stops moving then observe. Spark testors connect inline between your spark plug and rubber boot. Simply turn the starter over and watch siteglass to see if there is spark or not. Checking fuel, make sure your getting fuel to the carb. If your getting fuel to carb but only starts with starting fluid, you know you have a dirty carb. Although I believe your problem lies with compression, that's where I would start. You should have at least 75 psi and reading should hold and not fall quickly. Let me know what you find after doing this and I can help steer you in the right direction from there. Good luck!
take the spark plug out and see if the engine will turn over then, gas will probably come out of the cylinder cause you flooded it when you turned it over after you get the gas out of the cylinder, put the cleaned spark plug back in and it should start
If your plug wire is in the front, check it. It may have come lose and is making sporatic contact with the end of the spark plug. My wife did the exact same thing last week. You may have to look in the plug wire cap at the connector.She bent ours so it was larger than it should have been and not "snapping" onto the plug when pushed on. I just lightly squeezed it together with a plier and then it snapped back on night and tight. Ran great after that.
Maybe the ignition module is gone bad. It helps fire the spark plug to make the motor to run. Also if it has a stop cable on it make sure the cable pulls back far enough to pull the flywheel brake off the flywheel. If your mower was running then quit, it sounds like the ignition module bad.
