Question about Craftsman 42 in. Deck 19.5hp Lawn Tractor

1 Answer

I have a Craftsman 42 in. 15.5 hp lawn tractor which starts and then within 10 - 20 seconds dies. I have changed the spark plug, changed the oil and oil filter, cleaned the air filter, drained the gas tank and put in a new fuel filter. I also put gas cleaner in the fuel tank and sprayed carb cleaner in the carburetor. Any ideas??

Try this.
When the mower is about to die, loosen the gas cap.
My mower gas cap vent holes plugged up and kept stalling the mower.
If it works, drill out the vent holes.

Try changing the its oil-seals. The problem lies there. It may be damaged or the oil-seals are now smaller than its is used to and it is because of the heat. The oil-seal are rounded things that are made of rubber.
