Figured I'd start a new thread. My daughter has a cleaning service and most of her clients are old and use a lawn service now. I thought one of them may have a rider they don't use. One did. A Craftsman 2006 DLS 3500 46in. Was sitting for 3 years but the fuel was emptied before is was stored. Had new blades. I changed the oil. Cleaned out the carb. New battery. A little play in the steering but runs and cuts fine. Has one intermittent problem though. Turn the key and nothing for 2 seconds or turn it off then back on then it cranks and starts. I cleaned batt cables and every connection I could find. New fuse. Starter solenoid maybe?
