I decided to use my new 14 to do a little mowing just to see how it did. Checked the oil level, it was just a tad low so I topped it off. Climbed on and it fired right up. It mowed great for about a 1,000 feet or so then the engine started to die and just as it quit it backfired. I can turn the key and nothing happens. I put a volt meter on the battery and got 12.97 volts so I thought maybe the solenoid went out so I jumped from post to post and got nothing. Took the ground loose at both ends and cleaned. Replaced battery with another one I know is good and cleaned the positive lead. Same results.:fing20: Anyone have suggestions? Thanks.
