i got a cub 1730 with a kohler mv188, previous owner broke cuplings in hydro rear, fixed that, now engine wont fire. it ran 2 weeks ago and was allowed to run out of fuel. i put in fresh, nothing. cranks and i get a gas smell. good spark, compression, and air filter looks good. what am i overlooking. evrything else "looks" to be in good condition. one question, does the fuel pump have to be primed on these? i know it has to be something simple, but i just come up blank. thanks for everything

If you still got trouble try to put a lil gas into the carb throat and give it a whirl.. If it fires/starts then fuel is your trouble.. Tank/ filter/ carb has blockage.. Good luck!
