Question and Answers

Q:

i

A:

I know how important it is to have a good working tractor in the home so that you can keep your lawn nice and trimmed. While you are waiting for your expert answer, I did manage to find a link that describes a similar problem to the one you are experiencing with your tractor. I am also adding a second link in where you can enter your appliance model number and the owners manual will pop up. Please keep in mind that if your appliance is over ten years old than the owners manual may no longer be available. I hope my links are useful.

If you have no compression at all, that's usually indicative of something pretty severe having gone wrong. Check to make sure the piston is moving. Remove the spark plug and insert a long screwdriver (or similar item) into the hole until you can feel the piston. Then slowly turn the flywheel by hand to see if the piston pushes the screwdriver out. If it does not, then the connecting rod is broken. If the piston does move then there is likely a valve stuck open, you will need to remove the head to see if the valves are moving up/down when you spin the engine by hand.

Let me know what you find and we can proceed as necessary.

Q:

what do i do to fix a compression problem i mean no compression model # of engine 143356052 no compression

A:

An engine can be very expensive once it stars giving you problems, I suggest you add to the thread of this question and include the full model of the appliance not just the engine model number so that the expert can provide you with a more detailed answer. I did manage to find a link in where you can enter your appliance model number and the owners manual will pop up in where you can find some great troubleshooting tips. I hope my link is useful.
