Hey everyone. I have a lt1000 with the 17.5 hp ohv.
I was mowing and it backfired 2 times while I was in 3rd gear and died. would not restart. so I pushed it to the barn, adjusted the valves. no luck. It is getting spark and fuel. I cleaned the flywheel and coil. Still no luck. The switch on the carb. seems to be fine. It springs back when I pushed it. reinstalled it. That didnt help. could I have a ring problem? Oh yea oil level is fine. motor is the 31C707 type 0230-E1
