You're right if the fuel solenoid is bad it can cause fuel starvation.Looked the tractor all over can't find anything. Same with engine. I need a manual so i can get this adjusted and running. I think the carb needs a good
cleaning but would like to have a kit on hand first. It could lso be the fuel shutoff on the carb i assume it works with key??? like juice going to it when i
want to start it right? Thanks Ken
Sounds like the carb just needs a darned good cleaning but its a good idea to check that fuel cut off solenoid.Sorry you did'nt miss it i did'nt say. It is a twin ohv b&s. I'm not sure how to do pic's but i will try to get some tomorrow (tractors not here) and try to post
I just picked it up sat. eve i tried starting it no go spray carb cleaner in it fires right up i unhooked the fuel line from the fuel pump it's pumping as should be. i can make the tractor move if i spay carb cleaner in it (i hate doing that) tomorrow i'll unhook the wire to see if it's got juice to the valve.
Damned MTF ! grrrrrrrrr ok I'll post the pics.Sounds like the carb just needs a darned good cleaning but its a good idea to check that fuel cut off solenoid.
Ok now that I know what it is the Briggs site will help ill see if I can post where the engine ID is.
Heres the Briggs site you should be able to get an owners, parts, manuals free here if not go to K&T Parts House they have most of them there.
First you need to find the engine numbers so you can get parts and diagrams.
