(quoted from post at 12:59:51 07/05/1Cool Try the easy fixes first: spark plugs; filters; valve adjustment. When choking helps, I would expect the problem to be in the fuel system: fuel filter; dirty/plugged carburetor; cracked fuel lines; debris in fuel tank. Was it surging?


SMOKE it was blue but didn't last long
engine is on it's second full year so valves should be seated by now.. I'm gonna go thru fuel system tomorrow and get a new plug, tank looked clean thru the filler hole and no sign (bubbles) of water... but might dump it and refill anyway

thanks guys

If all the above suggestions fail, pop the shroud and remove the nut holding the flywheel onto the crankshaft. Look at the groove in the CS and FW and
ensure that the Woodruff Key is perfectly square. There's a chance the backfire could have partially sheared it and that's enough timing error to keep
an engine from running....now how do you suppose I know that? Wink.

I have the same motor on my garden tractor;
a really good motor by the way. It did the
exact same thing yours did. It was the air
filter plugged up. I just washed it out with
gas a few times and then blew air backwards
thru it. Let us know what was the problem.

I was visiting my daughter awhile back, single mom 2 boys in college, city lot.......she had mower woes, asked me for some help. I found out what happens when nobody in the family is mechanically (if that's the right word) inclined. You wouldn't believe all that was neglected that required fixing before that machine ran again. For most folks (I'd assume) that would never have happened. She really needed an electric with a tomato worm green (chartreuse) , or fluorescent orange power cord so they don't run over it.
