Customer Question

I have a craftsman YTS4000 tractor with a 24hp Briggs and Stratton motor. After running fine for a while it starts pulsing and eventually stalls and won't restart, sometimes it will restart if you put the choke on and it will actually stay idling at full choke. I have changed fuel filter, oil filter and air every season.
JA: Do you have fuel in the tank? If so, is the shut-off valve open and the fuel clean?
Customer: Fresh gas
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: That depends
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: That is all that comes to mind

Twin engine, in the base of the carburetor s a fuel solenoid, best test is to remove it and pug hole for test! It has to have 12 volts as long as key is on, and it plug the main jet when it is closed.

Unplugging it assures engine will not start, it has to be removed, for test.
