Did you drain the fuel tank at the end of the season and what fuel plus additives (if any) you used for your recent very successful start.
@systemMine doesn't do that.
Me either and no, no points on this motor. I'm just ordering the parts from LCT/Ariens using their provided parts diagram for their specific engine................yesI don't have one but is it possible your Kraken has points, a coil, and a battery thus requiring no magnet? Do you have a wiring diagram for your machine that we could look at?
Awesome and thanks, I'll take it for penny's on the dollar if(when?) it doesn't start..........LOL.Howdy boys. Just got the call. The blower is done. Fuel pump assembly was the issue. This is my dealer: Welcome - South Side Sales - Power Equipment, Snowmobiles, Mowers, Tractors and More
They have another Kraken in stock if anyone needs one. It might even start...
Agreed and got one already, very very easy to replace. I powered it with 12V, let it suck up a bit of oil for storage. I fired up okay too the other day, first pull.......Small batch pump issue I hope.As I showed and mentioned in one of my previous posts, my Kraken fired up no problem after sitting since April. Also it has 22 hrs. of runtime on it. That said, I think stocking a fuel pump for it is a good insurance plan.
For crap sakes.........I think most everyone here takes pride in our machines old or new, that's totally wrong, I'm even bummed now!! What a shitty deal to do to a guy's new machine. Someone else a year back mentioned this same EXACT thing that was done to their brand new machine......Maybe they'll chime in and share as perhaps their was some resolution for them, not sure, but they were just as pissed off, I do recall that.
Hmmm, this is resonating lately seems.....Ownership and accountability or lack there of is a convenience these days esp when either, you choose, works to your advantage......Ahhhh, its a bright new consumer world out there with dealers selling manu's products who outsource their parts and labor! Nothing new I reckon just such a PITA.they insisted this is an LCT issue.
If a dealer is displaying his new machines out doors and notices fading after a couple of weeks, why would he continue to put new machines out doors? Doesn't make sense.So, heard back from the dealer. They were very sorry about the scratches on the tank but offered no restitution. On the fading, they insisted this is an LCT issue. The service guy said the owner has been complaining to Ariens about this for some time now as all the new machines on his lot look the same after just a couple weeks in the sun. I guess that could be possible as gas spills on tank tops all the time and it never takes the finish off. If that's the case then shame on LCT/Ariens for a low quality paint job and shame on the dealer for adding insult to injury with the scratches.
