Re: murray/scotts 16hp 42"
When you say its not running.....what does it do? Crank but not fire up? That might be no spark issue. But Commands have had a rectifier that can go bad, also. Check the fuse , replace if blown, try to start it, then shut it off and try to restart. No action, check fuse again, if blown, then the rectifier is bad, and needs to be replaced. I'm just shooting in the dark as to why it isn't running. But have had that happen on several Commands. It is a bit pricey, usually above $30 to as high as $70.
This of course may not be why it isn't running but if it is, here is where it is on the shroud.
Keep an eye on that gas tank.....that looks to be the same one they did a recall on because of where the two halves are heat welded. These tanks were cracking and leaking. Then the recall, and not to much later they were out of business.
