I have a 17 horsepower 42 inch cut troy bilt riding mower. The carb, need to be cleaned out and I have gotten it off the mower but there is an electric switch at the bottom of the bowl on the carb. I am good with small engines but have never faced this. How do I get the electric switch off the bowl so I can take the bolt out and clean the bowl?

Troy-bilt riding mower won't move in forward or reverse


I had a similar problem with my TroyBilt 50 inch zero turn mower. Was cutting grass when it stopped going either forward or backward even though it would start and the PTO would move the cutting blades. Turned out the tensioner spring for the belt that drives the motors near the rear wheels had gone missing. Searched the yard where I had cut and moved the machine but couldn't find it. A new one cost me about $7.50. Put the new one on and it worked fine.
