Thanks for all the input fellas i changed the fuel pump (those things arent getting any cheaper) and still no go :( oh and yeah its the kohler version. I have to get back on the road in a few hours so im gonna just leaved it alone like Toolz suggested before i go nuts on it .. i guess when i get home im gonna do a compression check its got plenty of spark i know that for sure it got me pretty good lol. it just baffles me it was running like a champ just shut it off to take a phone call and now nothin.

one more thing if i spray either or carb cleaner in it she tries to run but wont stay running and i installed a new inline filter to see if that helped but no..


Your not getting fuel in the engine.
Do you have fuel flow to the pump?
Do you have fuel flow to the carb?

Runs on stuff sprayed trhough the carb. No gas through carb. Stuck needle, clogged jet. Recheck the carb probably gummed up.

Could even be simpler, water in gas.

Then I think you need to clean the carb out, the jets must be plugged up.

Understood. Maybe the break away from it will help you to sort it out when you get back to it.

Trav1s you sure know how to make an offer at the right time lol gonna have to pass but ask me again in a few weeks when im really mad and have to mow the yard by hand again :thumbs:..

thanks for all the tips fellas


I try! I have been pondering a trip to Des Moines to look at a car. I bet I could find your place if needed. :p Keep us in the loop. I am a bit frustrated with the 120 right now so I can relate. I love the old Deeres when they work but working out the bugs can be a challenge. My money is still on crap in the carb or a stuck valve/head gasket.

I cant believe it i actually managed to get it running... :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana: but i tell you what at one point i was about to send her to the scrap.. this is the sad part after all the parts i changed it ended up being the stupid ignition switch :wallbanging: i had pretty much given up on it and went home (its at my father in laws house he has a nice garage) about 2 min down the road he called me and it was running in the background he said he wanted to try just one more time and it started come to find out if you hold the key a certain way it will run if you just turn it to start it wont so new switch is in the mail and i FINALLY got my deere back..

well i suppose on the bright side she is more than ready for a summer of work.. :rocker2:

Great news :thumbs: ! It had to be something unusual. I've learned to take nothing for granted when troubleshooting electrical systems in these old tractors. Glad to hear you are putting it to work.

For future reference, these old kohlers have a feature called A.C.R. (automatic compression release). Which means a standard compression test won't work. Their is a spring loaded set of tab's on the cam that kick the exhaust valve open in the low rpm range for easier starting. I know this isn't relevant to the problems which you have already fixed to get yours running, but good to know either way so I thought I'd pass it on.
