Question about Tecumseh Lawn Boy Push Mowers Insight Silver Powered Series - Sens - A - Speed Walk Behind Mower - 10685

2 Answers

Engine surging I have a John Deer 175 Hydro Lawn Tractor. Had it tuned up for the year locally (not dealer). Ran fine for about 2+ hrs. It still starts fine and runs for 10-20 min. then starts to surge. I have drained the gas, cleaned out the carb bowl, and tried to clean the float needle without removing it. The is some grit in the fuel filter that appears to be on the outgoing side of the fuel filter. Any ideas?

SOURCE: mower surging

let it surge, it will usually get better as it warms up. These 6.5 Hp engines are fine except they have an cheap badly designed carburator. Nothing can be done about this problem. They all surge eventually.
