Riding mower won't start
Hi, My Craftsman model 917.250, Kohler 26 horse won't start.
I hop on, depress brake, turn key, engine turns over.
It has good spark at spark plug - removed plug, reattached plug wire, turned engine over with end of plug held near metal frame, sparks.
Checked fuel, also squirted starter fluid in carburetor, turned engine over, still won't fire.
Squirted starter fluid directly in cylinder - removed plug, squirted fluid in cylinder, replaced plug, turned engine over, no fire.
Checked for damaged flywheel key, okay too.
Scratching my head, puzzled, any ideas?"
