  1. This is great info. Thanks a lot! I’ll test it this weekend.
  2. Thanks for the help. So there is no spark on the secondary side when cranking. I’ve been trying to figure which wire or wires in the harness would effect all 3, (fuel pump, ignition coil, and fuel injector) I am told that the crank position sensor should not effect the fuel pump or injector cycle? but no one seems to know for sure.
  3. 100% right on the pink junk being Stabil. It’s no help for Ethanol. This is a discussion I have with customers all the time when I test their “100%” gasoline and show them 4-8% ethanol in it. I always recommend the best non-ethanol you can find PLUS an ethanol treatment. Ethanol-shield* and Startron* have both worked ok.
  4. Ben1098 put some good info here. I have had situations where a customers’ fuel is so bad that even if I put good fuel directly into the cylinder, the bad fuel spraying in from the injector IMMEDIATELY diluted my good fuel and it wouldn’t burn. I had to completely remove the bad fuel source before it would even pop.
  5. I have had good luck crossing Massimo parts over to the Cub Cadet Challenger 550.
  6. Thanks! I have power to the fuel pump, ignition coil and everything else. I Installed a new Relay unit & a new ECM and that didn’t change anything. I’m starting to think the problem may be a bad ground. I haven’t been going that direction though because the starter cranks and all other options and accessories have power. I’ll post more later.
  7. Ben...Thanks a lot for the info! I’ll check it out. Joe... This post is asking “does the fuel pump cycle when the key is in the run position” NOT “what’s your opinion of Massimo” I know it’s not the same quality as my Teryx, It’s a project machine that I payed $200 for.
  8. If the engine is only cranking but not popping, backfiring etc. Then like T-Boss 410 said, the injector could be bad. Massimo does not have a inline fuel filter, just a screen. This apparently leads to a lot of bad injectors. A common bad injector symptom is the motor will start and idle but fall off under acceleration. In your case, there is nothing, so let’s look further. Check the spark with a GOOD TESTER. I’ve been an equipment mechanic for 30+ years and I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen a spark plug fire when laid on the engine block THEN NOT FIRE when it’s installed and un
  9. Thank you for the reply. That was my thinking but I just bought this one as-is so I wasn’t sure. The service manual doesn’t say much but I’m thinking the only part that would effect the fuel pump, injector and spark would be the ECU. I thought possibly bad ground but it looks ok and the engine cranks over great.
  10. My thinking is that if they are supposed to cycle with just the key to the RUN position, then it would not be the CPS.
