The proper way is to remove the tank from the unit. You can also use a vacuum type device to remove all the fuel and water although it is very difficult to remove everything without removing the tank. Make sure you do not use a motorized vacuum device unless it is ul rated for use around gasoline!!!!

My Craftsman lawn tractor will run for a while and then stop then sometimes after sitting for a while will run again. What should I check? I added fuel additive to gas just incase the fuel was bad.


Drain the fuel tank. Dispose of the gasoline responsibly.
Replace the fuel line between the tank and the carburetor.
Put fresh gas in the tank. See how long it runs.

While you're at it, change the oil and remove any debris from
the cooling fins on the engine. It may be overheating.

If it still doesn't run, you probably failed to replace the fuel line.
Trust me, this is part of good maintenance for these machines.

Test for spark. Make sure the air filter is clean. Then make sure fuel is getting from the gas tank to the carb. Old rubber fuel line deteriorate and stop up small ports and parts in the carb. An inline fuel filter is a good idea on these larger engines. Sometimes, a larger B & S engine needs the OH valves adjusted to start easily and run properly. If after attempting to start, does the new plug get wet or even smell like gas? You should always use gas LESS than 30 day old. Gas goes stale like bread and milk. You can remove the fuel line from the fuel tank at the carb to drain old gas. You can also remove the carburetor bowl to check for water and sediment (which need to be cleaned out). Check these things and post back.

Will not start after putting on new fuel filter and spark plug


This may seem silly, but if you put a new fuel filter in, did you drain the fuel and not put fresh fuel in the tank, and is the plug wire connected properly?

Good luck.

How to drain the old gas from my 20.0 HP, 42 in. lawn tractor. Thank you, Nancy


Remove the fuel line from the engine and drain the old fuel into a container. Follow the fuel line from the fuel tank to the engine. Anywhere along that line where you can disconnect it do so. The fuel filter is a good place to disconnect it and then you can replace the fuel filter when you connect it back up.

Sounds like dirt or water in your fuel system. Have you drained the bowl on the bottom of the carburator? There is a small bolt on the bottom of the bowl; be careful not to over tighten it. If you find anything but fuel in the bowl you may need to drain your tank as well.
