Try starter fluid to determine whether its a fuel problem or spark. Remove air filter cover and filter and spray a short burst (about 1 second) of fluid into carb throat (or as close as possible behind baffle C) and promptly pull starter cord.

Hopefully it is off by now. If the kill switch does not work then take off the air filter and put your hand over the opening or pull the plug wire or put the choke on full.

I would say that the cable has been overtightened and causing the engine to race when it should be idling. Recheck the fitting and the tension of the cable. At idle, it should be barely moving the carby throttle.

Given your description the brake actuator module is suspect. This unit has an automatic electric brake system. If the brake actuator does not fully rotate into brake set position the engine will not crank. Check for obstructions in brake linkage.


You could try disconnecting brake linkage and see if it allows for engine start. Can also be a bad pole in the PTO switch or loose connection somewhere in start engine safety interlock.

I have found that although they may look similar, with out changing brackets and adding new pulleys they will not interchange. Also decks from the same manufacturer will be different in different years.

You should be ok to clean the carburetor out clean the gas tank out and put new spark plugs or clean the plugs real good and it should crank be sure to run clean gas through line to fuel pump to be sure of gas circulation

Remove the carburettor and strip it down. It is a good opportunity for a good clean. See the videos https://www.google.com/search?q=toro+5000+inch+cut+24.5+clean+carburetor

it could be a few things but i would start by checking the wire connections at the switch to be sure they are secure and not corroded or broken. also the switch itself may be bad. check to see and replace .
