As far as time and cost, this is usually pretty quick, there are a few common items that are fouled by the old fuel and they are covered in this video. I would also add that the fule line should be replaced, it is cheap insurance.

A:

This is almost certainly going to be a situation where the carburetor has some old gas or debris in it. Pick up a can of spray carb/choke cleaner from an auto parts store and thoroughly clean the carburetor out. After that, you should be back to mowing again.

If you have any further questions please let me know.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!

Thanks for your response. I ran some carb cleaner through the carb a few times and it started, after I also cleaned the spark plug. Thanks again.

A:

With the information you put in about removing or loosening the belt I suspect something is going on with the gearbox.

The gearbox turns when you push the mower without the engine running. The belt should be loose enough to let the gearbox turn the pulley without having to turn the engine over.

Look at your drive control and be sure it is loosening the belt when you shift it out of drive.

Thanks for the reply Jimmy. Yes, when I pull the engagement lever the pully is pulled up and forward slightly which puts tension on the pully/belt allowing it to drive. That part seems to be working. You think its in the gear box assembly, part #16 in image below:

A:

I am concerned that the belt is not getting slack in it when the drive control is disengaged. The belt should be loose enough to slip and let the pulley on the gearbox turn freely. I don't think there is anything wrong with the gearbox. There might be a spring that moves the gearbox to loosen the belt when the drive control is disengaged that is broken or missing.

Thanks Jim. Spring is still intact, but could be pulling it too tight (or not tight enough). All parts seem to be in place, will double check. Thanks again.
