I have the torque power 6.75 eagle 1 engine on my craftsman

Customer Question

I have the hi torque power 6.75 eagle 1 engine on my craftsman mower. Can not get it started as if gas is not getting to the spark plug. Gas is up to the carb as I drained gas out of the line up to it. also put a new spark plug in.
JA: Do you have fuel in the tank? If so, is the shut-off valve open and the fuel clean?
Customer: Put new fuel in the tank. Can not find any shut off but that is what it sounds like not release gas
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: If I can
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: The mower sat for about a year

Hi I'm Wayne

I will help you with this

did this just happen all of a sudden

or was it sitting a while

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
It has been sitting for about a year. Changed spark plug, drained gas and put in new.
Expert:  Wayne replied 6 months ago.

Thank you for that

what you are describing is the needle and float is stuck

not letting the gas thru, drop the bowl on the bottom of the carb

and make sure the float and needle valve move up and down

freely with you finger

I hope this helped you

giving up I think. replaced the bulb. sealed it. still won't start and gas doesn't get to carb. bulb does not get hard and bowl does have gas in it

HI

Don't give up

the fuel line that goes from tank to primer has a hole in it

that is why no suction, replace the line
