Hi! I bought an old JD #345 3 years ago. I don't use it that much but I let used by other people that they may not very careful with the machine. Anyway, this is my JD issue that have and wonder if anyone can give me an advice would be much appreciated.
So it didn't run for like 2 months. I've been told that it was a sudden "dead"! I basically, found a key broke half inside the key hole but managed to remove it and got a new key. I also bought a brand new battery for it since the old one tested dead at a local garage. Base on most of the online posts I saw of a similar problem I changed a new TDM (Timing Delay Module) for it. I started the JD every step of the way to see what I have done working. But so far It remains the same: it cranks when I turn the key but won't stay on afterward. I noticed gas comes out from a little rubber pipe at the bottom of the front everytime I started. Please see a short video and picture that I took of the pipe. I've tried most of the things that I came across from posts and youtube videos, except for doing anything with the Carburetor. Please help! https://youtu.be/vbbKuDIe4oI. https://photos.app.goo.gl/A52xmZCrEkQ13k1n7
