Question about Craftsman 17.5 hp 42 in. Deck Lawn Tractor - CA Model
Does the lawn mower have spark to plug or plugs ? Simple way to find out ia to remove spark plug & reattach wire to plug & hold elecrtode end up against engine block-(make sure you hold onto rubber or else could get a jolt)-and try to start again, should have spark, if not could be that flywheel strip-(magnet) is rusted over & cannot communicate w/coil to acheive spark. If this is the case simply sand the strip w/180 or 220 grit sandpaper & try again. If you have spark then you are probably not getting gas. Pull bottom scrw out of carb bowl & drain into a cup, check for debris. If gas comes out dirty will probably need to remove float bowl completly. Use care when removing & gasket can be re-used. Clean out float bowl & attachment screw-(has a hole in the bottom which feeds gas to engine) reassemble & try again. Hopefully this information helps.
