View Full Version : Kawasaki engine (fh601v) troubleshooting

08-10-2011, 04:46 PM
I have a jd 717a with a 19 hp kawi engine. The issue I've been having is when I go to crank the mower up, whether its warm or hot, it sputters and backfires. I will lower the throttle and it will straighten out and if I ease the throttle up it will not sputter. It also does this when I engage the blades. If I can ease the throttle up and get it to full throttle it will do fine. The only time it does this is at startup and when I engage the pto. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. I have mixed some seafoam in the gas to help but it had no affect. The mower has 190 hrs on it. Thanks
