i got a toro z master 44" with a 17 hp kawasaki...the engine only has about 200 hours on it but the mower sat for a long time before i bought it. it only runs on 1/2 choke and bogs down and dies when i take the choke off. i have already taken the carb off and completely cleaned it. what else could be the problem? compression is fine also

I had the same problem with my 15 Kawi. I replaced the fuel pump and it fixed the problem. The pump came in a plastic Honda bag....the dealer said it was the same....but half the money. $17 instead of $40. If it sat for awhile it could of gummed up. Best of luck.
