Customer Question

I bought a LT50 XTL 50" lawn mower tractor from Farm and Fleet.
It will not start.It crancks ackts like it is out of gas,but has nearly a full tank.I see gas around the gas filter(not leaking..gas in the gas line) is like the gas pump is faulty.Or am I overlooking something?
Thank you...Steve Halverson ***@******.***

Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! In the carburetor is an electric solenoid, do you hear it click open when you turn on the key? It plugs the main jet and if it does not open, engine gets no fuel.
