JD 455 won't start

My 455 won't start I'm hoping someone can help me. While using it last week it died acting like it was out of gas. I checked it was very low. I added gas tractor started. I used it for about anothe half hour and parked it. 5 days later it will not start. Turns over well but wont start. I sprayed starting fluid in the intake. It acts like it has no spark. It has the Kawasaki engine. I was told it was rebuilt and the cam was replaced. It has about 400 hrs on the rebuild.

Re: JD 455 won't start

If it has a kawasaki it must have donor side panels on it to be called a 455. Or did you mean 445? A 455 would have a Yanmar diesel engine.
