Question about Craftsman 26 Hp 54" Deck Yard Tractor

1 Answer

I have a 2007, 6500 Craftsman tractor with 26 hp engine (kohler) that won't start. The tractor was running (old gas) when we got off it for a few minutes then went back to start it again but it would not start. It turned over but never would try to start. I drained old gas, put in new. Same situation. I put in new spark plugs same result. verified gas was pumping correctly, it was. Oil full, gas full, new plugs, air filter clean. Only has 85 hours on tractor.

SOURCE: Craftsman DGS 6500 garden tractor won't engage

Hi
There is a pin in the back by the hitch - make sure it is pushed in. If it is pushed in then check to see if there are any oil leaks under it.

I had the same problem so I looked under the mower and the belt that goes from the engine to the back of the mower was off so I pushed the clutch as far forward as I could and the belt went on it and it worked

Are there a difference in the coils on a 26 hp kohler?


Yes and the numbers should match up on both old coils. The new coils will have a different part number because they have updated them.

Craftsman Kohler 26 hp starts and runs for 10 seconds with starting fluid sprayed in the carbureator then stops. How do I keep it running


first you need to see if you have fuel going to the carb then you need to see if it is going threw the carb there is a solenoid on the bottom of the carb that shuts fuel off to the jet if you have no power to the solenoid that will keep it from running also dirty old fuel sitting in the carb will cause the carb rto stick closed so if you have power to it remove it and see if it is opening

My craftsman mower with a 26 hp kohler dies when choke is in


carb dirty, jets partially plugged, float sticking. Not so uncommon problem and is caused by the fuel left in the carb over the winter gumming up (going bad). You can attempt to clean this on your own if you are somewhat mechanically inclined. Search small engine repair and it will give you a generic breakdown of the parts in a small engine carb. If not the, to have someone overhaul a small engine carb will run you about $120 including parts (at least around VA).
