Hi there wendic

pauly46 here

your machine sounds like it needs the starter clutch on top of the flywheel replaced

it is quite possbile that you will need another stater pulley and spring too as the faulty starter clutch would be causing damage to those components too , if your really lucky they wont be damaged but more often they are

so your worst case scenario is replace starter clutch, pulley and spring , the least is replace only the starter clutch and check for damaged csping and pulley where it engages the clutch

as well the shaft where the clutch attaches to

here is web site for parts

www.partstree.com
or www.ereplacementparts.com
go to mtd , then lawn tractor , then select model from list

115-072a019 hopefuuly it in the list

if not let me know your engine model and type code and brand and i will try get part numbers for you

cheers pauly46

Fix ariens snowblower 520 dies when engaging the auger lever


Your front end is jammed. Its either frozen or there is a rock or something jamming it up. Before you start engine reach down chute and turn back impeller that throws the snow out of blower. Should turn freely. when its free its fixed. You will probably need a new belt.

STARTING ROPE BROKE AND UNABLE TO START MOWER


Hi,,,,replaceing the rope is easy, just takes sometime. first, take the cover off the engine. turn the cover over and rope pully should be right there. Measure out 8 foot of new rope. burn both ends of rope so it don't fray. get all of the old rope off the pully. here is where an extra pair of hands come in handy. by hand rotate the rope pulley 6 revolutions, now have someone hold the pulley, then feed rope thru the cover and thru the pulley rope opening, then tie a knot in that end, now slowly release the rope and it will wind itself onto pulley, now put rope thru the handle and tie knot, now put back togeather and go mow your lawn,,,lol

Engine starts and runs fine, then dies.


My 5hp B-S is doing the same thing and found a post that seems to be the best answer. Replace the float. It runs out of gas if the float is not working properly.
Another cause may be the diaphram, maybe.
Mine is 12 yrs old so I plan on getting the whole carb rebuild kit
while I have it apart
Good Luck

Mtd 22" yard machine staryts and dies using prospray.


Remove the float bowl again and remove the BRASS Jet in the bottom of the venturi throat. Clean the pin hole of the Jet so that you can see through it. DO NOT force anything through it. Just clean it. Underneath the jet is the venturi tube itself. It is also unscrewed with a screw driver. Remove it and clean all ofthe holes in it. Then reassemble tube and jet in to the venturi. Check the BOWL NUT for 2 holes. If the holes are clogged your engine will suffer from a lack of fuel. Lastly check that you have FUEL flow from the tank to the carb. If the tank outlet hole is clogged you will also have a lack of fuel problem.
