Troy bilt bronco lawn tractor has no gas going to carburetor
Asked Jul 14, 2012, 05:13 PM
I have inherited a Troy Bilt Bronco riding mower that belonged to my father. He used this twice before he passed away and it has been sitting for just over 2 years now. I replaced the battery and it will crank but not turn over. Here is what I have done...
This is a 2009 or 2010 Troy Bilt Bronco with a Kohler Courage 20HP engine
I replaced the fuel filter and checked to make sure the hose was open to the carb and it is. Fuel will flow through the filter and out the end of the hose that is attached to the carb.
I have removed the solenoid from the bottom of the carb bowl and the plunger moves up and down easily and I didn't not notice any gunk around it, but sprayed it with carb cleaner anyway.
I have removed the carb and the bowl and cleaned both of them out. The cleaner flows through the jets and into the bowl easily. The needle is clean from what I can see and the float moves easily.
Air filter is clean
Spark plus is working
Gaskets associated with the carb are clean, and not cracked or damaged.
I put all of this back together, can hear the solenoid clicking when I put the key in, and it just spins. I cannot see fuel moving through the filter and it won't start.
When you spray gas or carb cleaner into the carb it will run until that burns off. Then it dies.
