SOURCE: I have 16 hp Craftsman riding mower with a Kohler engine.

It may think you are in reverse and is killing the motor to keep you from backing up with the blade running. Look for switch that is telling it when you are in reverse, maybe it is stuck with grass or other debris. another possibility is that the blades are jammed and they are stalliing the motor. Mines stalls easily when cold.

SOURCE: Weird under load symptom briggs 17.5

a couple other checks would be to dump the carb resevoir where the float is, water under the float could be accumulated and closing the fuel off, due to density. out here on the farm we never use the gas to the last drop from the can. also the linkage between the motor fan blade, (govenor) might have been connected to the carb incorrectly. or a bad switch interlock on the mower blade.
some briggs motors are hooked wrong straight from the factory, where the throttle linkage is concerned. ( and the little spring is pretty hokey too)

SOURCE: 2 mowers 19.5 hp and 27hp kohler, both die when you let off brake

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

SOURCE: Engine revs wide open when starting

Check to see if the throttle shaft on the carburetor is actually moving (with engine off) Does it slow down when you move the throttle control on the dash?
Start it up and try moving the linkage on the governor shaft, if there is little or no resistance but the engine slows when you move it, most likely you have a broken governor gear inside the engine. Another possibility is that the screws that hold the throttle plate to the shaft have come loose and the plate is jammed in the throat of the carburetor

Honda Gv 100 works well if grass is short to medium loosing power with high grass any idea


Patrick, Ensure mower has good gas, good spark plug,Is the blade good and sharp. Clean any dirt, grass etc, form around the carburetor and governor linkages. It is possible the governor on engine may need adjusted, or spring off or a dirty carburetor needing cleaned internally. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Try a static governor adjustment first as it simply be out adjustment.

Static Adjustment Procedure
Make this adjustment whenever governor arm is
loosened or removed from cross shaft. Adjust as follows:
1. Make sure throttle linkage is connected to governor
arm and throttle lever on carburetor.
2. Loosen nut holding governor lever to cross shaft.
3. Move governor lever toward carburetor as far as it
will go (wide open throttle) and hold in this position.
4. Insert a long thin rod or tool into hole on cross shaft
and rotate shaft clockwise (viewed from end) as far
as it will turn, then torque nut to 6.8 N·m (60 in. lb.).
