Question about Garden
You should check the vacu jet carb on this mower for either a vacuum leak where it mounts to the gas tank, a blocked or split intake tube in the the gas tank or a weak/worn out diaphragm.
You can spray a little carb cleaner at the base of the carb while its hunting and see if it smooths out. If it does you have a warp between the carb and tank. Either the tank is bowed or the carb *(nowadays made of plastic) is not flat anymore.
You can either buy a new carb or gently sand the warped one a little and see if that works.
Be sure to take pictures of your carb setup before removing it so you can reassemble later.
