Neighbors Grasshopper with a CH742


Recommended Posts

Next door neighbor has a Grasshopper that will not start.  Replacement engine two years ago.  CH742-3121 spec.

Story was about out of gas, sputtered down the hill refilled it, drove it up the hill, now it will not start.


Are they prone to anything "unusual"?

First suspect is bad gas, then fuel shut off solenoid.

Told him to crank it, then pull a plug and look for gas first. 

May have to pull the solenoid to drain the bowl to look for water also.


Anything else come to mind?

I'm having the same issue with my small-frame replacement engine. I'll be draining the fuel next. I will watch this thread with interest.
