now it will not start

Recommended Posts


OK Guys, Had a thread going under "B&S 326431-0190-01 16hp smoking " took it apart, so now I know rings are good, gap ok, gap spacing ok, rod in the right way, piston notch facing flywheel (rear), valve timing good, I have a battery Ign.so I could tell I have spark near TDC. put it together and now it will not start! I have compression, spark, and when I crank it fuel starts dripping from carb. I also tried a little starter fluid. I also feel vacuum at the carb during cranking. AT witts end Thanks

I have a battery ign. with a coil, condenser, and using org. points, so the fly wheel position now is not important, but the key is in and it is tight. now the float, it is not leaking, but not sure of the float level, when setting it should it be level with the casting? I believe the needle and seat are good.

Any opinion maybe helpful Thanks!!!

If you have a fuel shutoff,turn off the fuel. Loosen the bolt on the bottom of the fuel bowl and drain the fuel.Try starting the tractor with no fuel in the bowl and with starter fluid.See if engine will fire.If it fires...stuck fuel float.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
