6volt or 12 volt?

If you can find anyone to work on it, my bet is they will charge you $100 an hour to screw it up.

These tractors are very simple to fix; you can operate a pc, you can fix the tractor.

As soon as the tractor stops, (not 5 minutes later) you need to be prepared to find the answer to these questions:

Does the tractor have a spark that will jump 1/4" in open air?*

Will the gas drain out of the carb bowl in a steady stream and fill a pint jar in less than 2 minutes?

See tip # 13 at the link.

Post back with what you find out.

*If you don’t own a spark checker w/ an adjustable gap, buy one. In the meantime, an old spark plug w/ the gap opened to at least ¼” will work. Ground it to a rust & paint free spot on the engine turn the key on & look for a spark.
