Hi All, brand new to the forum and hopefully will not make a fool of myself or waste anyone time.
Have a MTD R608P - Tractor Supply Brand 25hp / 54.00" riding tractor.
Recently while mowing motor died.
Did all of the normal checks
-have spark (at the plugs)
-fuel pump wworking (pumps strong when ignition is on)
-Cranks strong and "sounds like" it trying to fire, but will not.
Disassembled the carb, cleaned - did not see anything abnormal
Same problem exists
I see where folks are mentioning the soleniod that plugs into the float bowl. Is there a way to by-pass this to determine if this might be my problem?
Any suggestions, questions or theories are welcome.
