  • MOre problems with my mower

    Jump on the mower sunday to load it up on the trailer,,, no start,, actually hard to turn over. Swap batteries, same result, test batteries=2 good batteries. hmmm, have a spare solenoid, replaced, slow start. install 3rd good battery,, no turn over. WTH? Thinking starter is fried,, pull cover and find that it's stuck extended. Procure another starter, slow to turn over and I hear sparks. Finally pull plugs, they're wet,, water wet! turn key and I blow all kinds of freakin water out and it's coming out of the muffler too! Damit! I just filled up Friday on my way home for a fresh easy start on MOnday and this crap happens. I'm now draining the tanks and it look worse than 50/50 water/fuel. Days like this make me wish I was an engineer just pounding away on my keyboard playing with logarithms

    Scott,

    dependent on your mower brand, check with you dealer as certain coils work better with restraining water and after market solutions are out there. In terms of fuses and other areas that you do not wish to get wet spray WD 40 or another water dispersent around them every so often and your mower will withstand our moisture more

          bad boy alright,, cleaned up the water mess, refilled with good petro, replaced plugs and filter, then it fired right up and then mowed my yard-1acre without a hiccup... still a PITA.

                how does that much water get in a tank unless someone dumped it in there?

                    Can't have been 50/50. Water is heavier than gas, so I'd think that's why you had a **** ton of water in the engine. How did you conclude it was half water???

                      Water does not come from the gas station. P ***y maybe, good coffee possible, but not water...

                        Underground tanks can become contaminated with water,.....if the tank was low and he filled his equipment while a tanker was off loading, or right after, he could have gotten a lot of water in his gas..

                        Anytime you see a fuel truck unloading at a station find another place to get gas, or wait at least an hour for the contaminants (sludge/dirt, etc.) in the tank to settle and for the water/gas to separate. There is always some amount of water in the storage tanks...

                        Scott, glad everything worked out.

                          cuz only 1/2 of it tasted like fuel, the other half I used to water my plants
