On this model the brake must be ON and PTO OFF for engine to crank.

Turning ignition switch to start position connects battery to the ignition switch "S" pole, then goes through the brake switch then through the PTO switch to the starter solenoid.

First check the being fuel needle in the carb. It might not be seating properly. It may have a groove worn in it. Depending it's age. Or it could be a dirty float bowl housing or a leaking float bowl.

Remove the belt and check that each pulley spins freely, grease your spindles, sometimes only accessible from underneath the deck. Check that nothing is wrapped around the spindles under the blades. Your belt tensioner spring could be worn out, assuming you have the correct belt installed.

There is a round, rotary black part between the metal piece to which the cutting head attaches and the outer plastic seat of the cutting head. There are two square slots, each about a quarter inch wide, on opposites sides of the black piece. Slide an Allen wrench or something similar firmly into the slot. Holding the Allen wrench in a stable position, turn the outer plastic ring of the cutting head (it has scalloped edges that can be gripped firmly) counter clockwise to unscrew the cutting head from the bolt on which it is mounted. Be careful with the tool (e.g. Allen wrench) used to hold the black piece steady, as it is plastic and could be damaged by the edge of the tool.

4 stroke uses motor oil in the sump. 2 stroke uses oil and fuel mix. Read your user manual!

Owners manual will state proper oil to be used but a good bet is that it requires SAE 30 wt. oil. Check and make sure no cooling fins are clogged with dirt, grease, debris, insect nests etc. Oil helps cool your engine also, but the proper amount is very important. I recommend synthetic oil for engine longevity. It's superior to standard oil for different reasons.

if there isn't a set screw on the carburetor for idle there is a metal tab you can bend to set the rpm. you will also need to check the voltage to be sure that when you speed up the rpms. that it isn't to much and burn up what you use on the generator.

if it uses just one belt to drive them both you got a seized bearing in the blade holder

check to see if the blades are loose. they should only spin not move up and down if they move up and down any little bit usually the Mandrell bearings have gone bad and need replaced.

Replacement pumps for this model are available on eBay or Amazon for $75 (delivered).

If engine runs well and unit otherwise in good condition. Replace the pump... repairing pump itself will likely cost x2.
