I see I forgot to post the vid of the gator with the dead cylinder.

No oil pressure?

The cylinder works with choke on it, sounds like it's not getting fuel without choke.

That's what I'm thinking. Just have to pull that one down and take a look. Now to see if I can figure out the cyl. not firing in the other one.

That what has me stumped since both cylinders share the carb and manifold. Like Cvans said might be a problem with the runner on that cylinder. I may try the carb from the other gator and see if that helps.

I don't know what engine, carb or intake you have, on my older 26 h.p. B&S, there is a two barrel carb and separate intake runners.

Kawasaki FD620D water cooled. Basically the same engine that is in the JD 425, 445. I'll get a pic so you can see what it looks like.

Checked for leaks and found nothing. Decided to pull the carb and run through the sonic cleaner. Wasn't expecting anything to change, but fired it up and I have both cylinders firing.  :dancingbanana:  Why didn't I try that first.  :wallbanging:   On the upside the engine got a pretty thorough check up so I feel good about that. Now on to swapping the steering and tires and then maybe a test drive.

 Whats the saying? Even a blind squirrel finds a nut now and then. :smilewink:

 

Thanks for the input. I need all of the adult supervision I can get.

I pretty much knew it had to be fuel, you'd verified everything else. Glad you got it going. BTW, I have Kaw 20 h.p. liquid cooled in my 3208 Cub Cadet, I was going to look at it today.

Thanks for the input. You were right, it was just to lean to run both cyl.  It just wasn't making sense to me that only the one side would fire when they share the carb and manifold.

There seems to always be a dominant cylinder, not sure why sometimes.

Took the gator for a test drive this evening after swapping tires and steering from the other machine. So far it seems pretty good. I did notice that the drive belt pulley's don't completely stop and I get a little grinding when putting it in gear. Is there an adjustment for that?

Next up will be transferring the Linear actuator lift, hitch, headlights, and the best of the plastic body panels.
