25 Kohler on Exmark Lazer HP, loading up under load

Mower will run fine under light load or less than full throttle. Tall grass type load causes it to to load up.
Seems in the past I had a similar problem, replaced the acc. pump about 3-5 years ago,and has been fine.
My concern is that I was in process of ordering new part the dealer has not ordered the part in past 3 years, ie. not a commonly replaced item.
Now I am concerned that it may be something else.
Any thoughts.
This is my primary mower so I need get it back in service ASAP

There is a black hose that goes from the side of the fuelbowl to the top of the carb..
Pinch it off or put a bb inside it...
That's what most repair shops do to fix the problem...and the reason they don't carry that diaphram in stock..

I've come across many that have a bb with a microscopic orifice in them...
They don't stop the running rich condition either..when the ethanol eats that diaphram..
When I used to diagnose engines on the customers trailers...they would look at me like a miracle worker....
When I pinched that hose with my needle nose vicegrips...

Pistonslapper, Thanks, I think the BB solved the issue, initially though not, but some how the choke got pulled out part way 9I think when I removed the filter bracket)and I think it was causing kinda the same issue. But tried again and seems to be A-OK Thank you my friend!!!
