An air filter can look clean and not be. Remover the air filter and pre filter and try again. If engine smooths out, you need a new air filter.

Are you sure you engine RPM's are high enough? If so adjust you carbs.high speed screw with the throttle in the wide open position.

there is a safety switch under the seat. to stay running after the brake is released or deck engaged you have to be sitting on the seat or it will die. if this switch is bad it will die as soon as you release the brake.

Runs until clutch is disengaged


I would have to say it is some security setting. Most likly it is your seat, if it should turn off when you stand up this is most likly it. So you want to make sure the wires are plugged in better that come out from the bottom of the seat. make sure the connecters are clean when you reatatch them.

Can't get stick to move down to disengage, push with all my power


With the engine off, reach under your deck and pull on the belt. This will force the idler arm back into disengaged position so you can start it. You can probably free the mechanism up with penatrating oil by spraying the pivot point on the idler arm ( the bracket the idler is mounted to that moves back and forth) while alternatly engaging the lever and pulling the belt till it frees up and returns by itself.

Runs Great until the blad is engaged


Frozen idler pulley under the tractor frame or frozen or damaged bearings on the deck spindles. With no belt tension on these items they should spin freely. If you have the know-how you can fix the problem yourself (parts are available at sears.com or elsewhere), otherwise you will have to bring it in for repair.
