    Just replaced both ignition coils on my 23 hp kawaski on a 52" Wright Stander. Everything ran fine and all the sudden it was hard to start. Coil and plugs are firing. Looking into the carb you can see fuel building up. After cranking about 30 - 45 seconds it starts poping and then it will fire. Black smoke comes out the exhaust momentarily and then it smooths out and runs fine. Turn it off and the same thing happens again. Removed and cleaned the carb several times with no luck. If I replace the plugs it will fire fine for about two starts and then the same thing again. ANYONE?
