Question about Riding Mowers & Garden Tractors
Mower sat for 5+ years - cleaned carb, replaced all fuel lines, fuel pump (diaphram toast), plug, fuel filter, air filter. Motor starts fine and runs beautiful at low RPM but sputters and dies at RPM needed to mow. Breather tube is cleaned and open. Throttle linkage appears OK and choke is working OK. When I hold the choke in the perfect ''position'', I am able to throttle it up all the way with no problem. The minute I let go of the choke it returns to its preset fully open position and dies. Could this be a governor problem? Thanks for the help...
The jets may need to be turned a half turn in either direction while running, and then adjusted if they are gummy inside.

If the choke has an adjustment point, then adjust the choke to a good overall working powerband. If it still doesn't act correctly, look for vacuum leaks. If it is an option, you may want to install a manually operated choke lever.
