I bought a 10 HP Craftsman lawn tractor in a non working condition for
It turned out that it had a stuck AND gas logged float. I went to a
Sears repair center today and got a new float. Also bought a gas valve
to be able to stop the flow of gas. Installed it and the engine is now
running fine. The tractor drives forward and backward and also cuts
grass. My son was very excited.
The only problem (besides a shot battery) is that the engine is
running unevenly. It revs higher and slower at the period of perhaps 2
seconds (WAG, not measured).
I suppose that something is out of adjustment (duh). I did mess with
set screws a little yesterday, without much understanding, and _think_
that I returned them to previous positions. Not sure where to start.
