This problem can't be the anti-diesel solenoid in the carb, that only does anything when the engine is shutting down.
Because you got poor results in the leakdown test and get 175 psi of compression (way too much), I suspect that either your intake valve is bad or misadjusted, or the key that holds the flywheel to the crankshaft is sheared off.
Check the valve lash settings and visually inspect the operation ov the valves while you're setting them. If the valves are OK remove the flywheel and check the key.

sounds like the spring on the carburator butterfly valve is weak ... when at idel it surges the engine but when the blade is enguaged the engine evens out

SOURCE: Engaging blades kills engine
there is a safety switch somewhere toward the bottom of the engagement handle if this switch is bad it will kill the engine there is also a switch under the seat that could be bad
