Please let us know what riding mower we are talking about with model number of the tractor and brand and model of the engine.

Also, a little more color on the no start. Did it not crank at all. Did it crank and stop. Did it crank and crank and crank without starting?

Will it crank with the spark plug out? Careful, gas may come shooting out the spark plug hole, so make sure the wire doesn't spark and do it outside in a safe area.
