Hello from Louisiana...waiting on the next natural disaster....
Anyway I have a 2004 Craftsman 4000 DYT that wont start...It will turn over, has a new starter, new plug, but wont fire...Happened out of the blue, started, cut fine, then next day it just started spinning... I only let it spin for about 5 sec max for fear of burning out starter... Briggs 18.5 with around 300 hrs...

Ok, I cleaned, to best of my ability, took it off, but not a complete breakdown, washed with gas, blew with air hose, replace and even put in a 3rd plug, just to be sure..... spins good, but no fire...getting gas at least to the carb, I pulled the line to make sure...carb is easy to get too, so I will try to reclean unless I need to try something else...was gonna try to cut the jungle before Bonnie hit, but that wont happen......
