There should be one screw at the top of the carb, that is the fuel intake adjust screw. turn clockwise all the way down without force. start the mower and slowly turn clockwise until rpm sound right

Don't forget to check your air cleaner. A clogged air cleaner will cause a rich condition.

How to adjust carburetor on a 20HP V-Twin Kohler Engine, it will not idle properly


The problem is more likely that the gas has varnished inside the carb. Mine did the same thing and I cleaned the carb and it ran great afterwards.

Now I have the carb off again because someone dumped a bag of sugar into my gas tank and it got sugar all through the system and into the carb and engine. I couldn't believe how much sugar is in there. Now I'm trying to find a diagram or schematic to show the exact set up for reinstalling the choke and throttle linkage and the spring with the throttle.

Gas shooting out top of carboratore on a 20 h.p turbo twin cylinder craftsman lawn tractor , idles fine but past idle starts spitting gas


This tells you that the carb is flooding out and needs to be rebuilt. Most likely the float in the carb has a leak and is sinking in the bowl.

Sure sounds like an elusive safety switch to me. There's usually one on the seat, the blade control, and the brake.
