Customer Question
I have a john Deere...
I have a john Deere garden tractor that has a Kawasaki engine in it. I bought the tractor around 1985 and the engine has been dependable until now. It has quit running, the engine continues to crank but not start. I have replaced the fuel pump but it still would not start. I have removed the carburetor and have not been able to find a new one. Any suggestions?
