I'm getting closer. The above link gives me the Cover and Safety Rules sheet, then jumps to page 31 thru page 52 (wiring schematic thru repair parts). Now I just need pages 3 thru 30.

I know how hard it can be to find the information needed for older machinery.  I see another community member located a manual for this model, although without several pages.  I was able to locate the Briggs and Stratton engine manual .  That should help fill in some needed information.  The manual for model 917.255930 is for a very similar model, so you should be able to use to help get your through the missing pages.  I hope this helps.  Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Thanks for the link to the Briggs & Stratton manual. I did check out the 917255930 manual, but it's a 3 speed with a center shift. The 917255942 manual has the six speed with the shifter on the right fender so it seems like a close fit. Any idea of the difference between 917255920 and the 917255942?

Something to check first off just to make sure we aren't spinning our wheels. On the left side of the engine, the fuel line goes up into the engine shroud. You can take that side piece of shroud off and see the fuel line. I want you to check that part of the line that is covered by the shroud. I have run into a few of these where the line was dry rotted (from heat) up under the shroud. That causes air to get into the fuel line and no fuel to be drawn.

If the line looks good we need to make sure we are able to get fuel up to the fuel pump (on front of carb). Take the line loose that supplies fuel to the pump and see if you can push air through it. If you have an air compressor for this, make sure you take the fuel cap loose and just gently blow some air through the line to see if you can hear bubbles in the tank. If you are not able to hear bubbles, check the fuel lines for cracks, kinks, or breaks.

If you know the fuel line is clear and not cracked or anything then we have no reason to not have fuel at the pump. Make sure the vacuum line from the pump down to the connection on the front of the engine is connected. If it's not, there is nothing to "power" the fuel pump. If that looks good, chances are that the fuel pump is the problem. The rebuild kit for the fuel pump is part number 393397. You can order that HERE if needed.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!
