    Thanks but it's not a throttle cable or choke cable. Could it be a mixture problem? Dirty carb? Bad seal or gasket? Needle valve? DOes this engine have a fuel pump?

THIS SOUNDS LIKE A THROTTLE CABLE LINKAGE PROBLEM.WITH THE HOOD OPEN AND MOTOR RUNNING RUN YOUR THOTTLE UP AND DOWN WHILE LOOKING @ THE LEFT SIDE OF THE MOTOR TO SEE IF THE CABLE IS FROZEN IN PLACE OR BROKE OR DISCONNECTED .HOPE THIS HELPS

    Thats not my problem though as my engine revs up perfectly and idles perfectly as long as the choke is on a little. And when i move the tractor it tries to stall out. is this a fuel pump problem?

Briggs & Straton 20 HP, two cilinder engine idle speed


Surging is usually caused by a lean condition You can try to turn the mixture screw ccw about 1/4 to 1/2 turn. If this does not solve the problem your carb will have to be removed, cleaned thoroughly, and reinstalled.

I charged the battery and there's gas in my lawn


Usually there is a combination choke on the throttle, when you put the throttle all the way up it sets the choke and once the engine fires you idle it downa little to full throttle.

Hard to start lawn tractor


I have 2009 lawn tractor that will not start (from day 1) unless I use a small squirt
of start fluid into the air cleaner area. Nothing else seems to work. The battery will run down before it starts. Once engine is warm it starts great. Love the tractor,
hate the starting problem. Elevation is not a problem in michigan.
