You didn't say what model of lawn tractor, but unless it has a fuel pump it will be gravity feed so no "vacuum". Most times when I have a no start it's because of crap in the carb that I fix by removing the carb for disassembly and cleaning.

If the fuel tank on your tractor is mounted above the engine you probably do not have a fuel pump and the carb is gravity fed. If your fuel tank is in back under the seat then you probably have a fuel pump somewhere.

Your model number is one number too short, but if I put a 0 there, I get a mower with an opposed twin flathead briggs. This should have the fuel pump built into the carb. Give us some more info so we can figure out what the situation is. Has the mower been sitting unused for years, or did it just shut off on you while mowing and won't re-start? Is fuel in the carb bowl? Did you open the fuel pump?
