Has anyone ever had this problem with starting there WD. If i shut off the tractor with the kill switch, and the next time I want to use the tractor it drains the battery before it starts. I have to choke the crap out of it, I even pulled a plug after choking so much, the plug basicly was dry. Heres the kicker, if I shut the tractor off by closing the gas valve it will always start with no problem. Has anyone ever had the same problem as I do. Thanks for listening.

I had the same problem with a WC carburator. If I would kill the tractor, it would take everything to get the thing to start again. Most of the time I would take brake parts cleaner to the inlet. If I would let it run out of fuel, It would start on the first or second crank. I was useing fuel additive in the gas. I just quit useing the additive because it was affecting other things also. If you have small lawn mowers, it will affect them too! I would just quit using the additive in all. Unless you use the tractor frequently, I would shut the gas off when you are done. You will be amaised how it saves time by doing it that way.

Sounds like your carburetor float or needle/seat valve is hanging up or the needle/seat valve or carb inlet may have trash in it. My theory is when you shut off the gas, and the engine runs until the carb is dry - the next time you turn on the gas the flow into the carb bowl is enough to overcome whatever is sticking or clogged and the vibration of the engine running keeps it working. Take the carb apart. If you cannot see anything wrong, install a rebuild kit anyway. Hopefully that will solve your problem. FWIW.
