Hi All; last night on kijiji i saw a scag zero turn for sale 10 minutes from my house, called the guy who said he needed it gone, it had rolled over , well i go see this machine in the dark and it looks really good no sign of damage it starts quickly runs a couple of seconds then dies, i get the whole story, his brother in law rolled it and was crushed to death and his sister want it gone now he says shoot me a number and its mine, now i have it at home it will start but dies and it will do this 20 times in a row, the gas tank is below the pump but i am wondering if there is a roll over shut off that needs to be reset. thanks for your opinons

it could be fuel related or electrical problem. best way to check electrical problem is to disconnect the engine kill wire from the coils and see if it will run. Just remember for safety the wire must be touched to ground to kill spark to stop engine. you can get an electrical diagram from scag web site. Those are fine machines

the tractor is a scag turf runner mod #STR-22CH motor is a kohler command 22, could not find plate with other specs, i took off the air breather and tried to spray gas down the carb once i had it firing but it still would not run past 5 seconds usually this keeps them running
