Tractor ran rich and extremely hard to start
I thought the float valve was not working, even after a complete carb rebuild. Pulled the head to check for burnt or stuck valves, significant carbon build up, but valves still closed correctly. Had weak spark, but it was there, so I replaced the coil, it did not run at all after that, so I pulled the kill wire from the magneto, the machine started, the carburetor adjustments were effective, better than before. Found a safety module that checks seat interlock, gear interlock, and deck engagement before you are allowed to start the machine. This module 68-2940 part number on a Toro 55600 series tractor kills the engine by grounding the ignition magneto coil.
So, I replaced the head gasket after cleaning the head and valves, put a float valve in the carb, by the way the little green ring goes in with a raised lip on the bowl side of the valve, replaced the coil and will install a new ignition switch and module coil when it comes in.

Question: What's The Green Washer For?

tacit

Looking at this because I need to replace the needle valve in a B&S carburetor. But I don't recognize the green washer. What's that for?
Hello tacit The only thing the green washer could be is the NEEDLE SEAT. Normally, they are orange in color. Some of these however in this Needle/Seat kit are that strange green color.
