Question about Parks Optical 13.5hp Briggs And Stratton Intek Lawn Mower Engine

1 Answer

I have a craftsman push lawn mover it will run for a few moments and then it will cut off. It also used to start with just one pull of the cord and that is no longer the case. Why do you think it wont stay started. I changed the oil, put in new gas and replaced the filter and it still will not work. What should I do?

How do I fix a Craftsman gas-powered push lawn mover that won't start? Already tried a new spark plug, and there is gas in the tank. Engine doesn't even begin to turn over


You need to add more info. When you pull the cord does the engine spin? If not the engine is seized or there is something stuck in the blade or the blade brake is stuck on.
If it does spin the take the spark plug out, attach the wire to the plug, lay the plug on a metal part of the engine and pull the cord. You should see spark jump across the gap. If you have spark then you have no fuel getting into the engine.

Craftsman 917-377150, the pull cord broke and the housing to replace it is rivited in place, can I drill these out, but then what?


Remove the recoil assembly from the mower, there are 3 machine screws.
Remove the old rope and get matching cord, make sure you get the correct diameter, usually 3/16 or 1/4 inch, and type, I believe it should be nylon braided. Do not cut the new cord.
Use a match to light the end of the cord and once it ignites, use an old rag to pull and form the end into a point.
Notice which way the pulley in the starter assembly rotates and hand spin it in that direction until it is fairly tight. Once it is tight, rotate it into a position such that you can push the pointed end of the cord from the outside into the hole in the housing of the starter and directly into the hole on the inner pulley. Tie a tight knot in the end of the rope inside the pulley.
Remove the clamp and let the rope get rewound on the pulley. Cut the cord, point this end and run it into the handle and knot it.

Pull cord broke on my craftsman gas push edger. I replaced cord but when I pull cord..It wont rewind but I can hear it trying to start


It sounds like you did not properly rewind the spring that is behind the spool that the cord would around, that spring is what rewinds the cord after pulling the cord.

Lawn mover will not start, was flipped over


The clicking noise may be the blade hitting the side of the mower or it was not put on properly. It needs a balance to the aluminum flywheel on top of the engine. The blade adapter and blade provide this balance for the engine to run.
Good Day.

I can't disingage the lever to cut grass on my craftsman riding lawn mover. Now because of this I can't start the mover.


the lever moves an arm on the deck connected to a pivoting plate holding the idler pulley. when you push up the lever, it pulls the pivot [and idler pulley] back and puts tension on the belt. if this pivot gets rusted, it sticks and won't release tension on the belt. find the pivot point and lubricate it thoroughly with oil, wd-40, or liquid wrench, then work it back and forth by hand until it is freed up

You have water in in the carborator, I'll bet. I had this same problem. Here's what I did.

I emptied the gas tank, put in a new spark plug, changed the oil and then unscrewed thd big nut on the bottom of the float container (attached to the carborator near the rubber gas injector button) and emptied and cleand the float container. Then i put it all back together, pulled the cord and the same thing happened, but this time i could keep it going by having my daughter constantly pushing the rubber gas injector button. After it had run for a minute with this constant pushing of the button, all the water was gone from everytwhere and it worked.
