Hi, my name is ***** ***** welcome to JustAnswer.com. I will be happy to assist you today. Give me a few moments to look over your problem, and I will get right back to you so we can fix the issue and get your machine back to working order
What is the Model/Type of the engine. Should be numbers located on the valve cover
Does your seat switch have Continuity?
What is the model of the machine from under the seat or on the frame?
Does it turn over? Do you have fire if it turns over?
If you are not getting gas to the plug (cylinder) the carb has a clogged jet and is not pulling fuel to cylinder. Try spraying carb and seeing if it fires off for a few seconds.
Remove the fuel solenoid if equipt and cut the valve off flush. I would install an inline fuel shut off valve also.
That is the fuel solenoid on the bottom of the carb bowl. If you have no voltage to it, that will be the issue. It lets the fuel into the cylinder from the carb
you can cut the valve off of the fuel solenoid and re-install it. Should be getting fuel to run with it not there, or you can purchase a new one ifthat one is avail without a carb.
Wires should run to ignition. when you turn the key that first turn, it pulls the valve downwards to allow fuel into jets to supply the cylinder with fuel
The engine turns over when key turned correct? If so, No. Switch and main solenoid are working properly. If no gas is on the plug, that fuel solenoid can cause this.
you can either trace down the wires to ignition switch, or you can remove needle valve from solenoid and engine will be fine.
That fuel solenoid can be purchased separate from carb for approx. $100-$145. Due to the high price, I cut many a week, and install a manual fuel shut off valve instead.
