Thanks a lot for all the help. I was told it was a WD 45 when I bought it, but not positive. Anyway, it has a mag. After posting the reqeust for help, I went back to the tractor to see if it would start with a little rest. Not luck. I then studied the mag a little, and observed the kill spring thing that you press into the mag to kill the engine was loose, and touching the body of the mag. I turned this a little, and the tractor started. I have since removed this part, as it has no use for me. Thanks again for your help.

All the best,

Fred, Just brousing through the forum and see you found the problem! That's great! See, like I said, it's the simple things (and dumb) that cause troubles. Happy Motoring! LOL!

Actually, I found it very funny. I was ready to start taking it apart. Today I changed to SAE 50 oil and hotter plugs to see if I can stop the oil fouling of the # 2 plug. I am hoping I can get some of the bugs worked out of this thing and get some use out of it. It is great to have this forum to bounce ideas and problems around.

All the best,
