Customer Question
I replaced the fuel...

I replaced the fuel line on my mower and when I turn the key nothing happens. I made sure all the safety items were in place but still nothing happens when I turn the key

Mechanic's Assistant: What's the make and model of the mower? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

It is a lawn chief 14.5hp and probably late 90's early 00's

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Briggs and straton motor
