    Here's the deal. The mower runs when going straight for the most part or standing still but if you pop the deck up or turn the engine begins to stall. Any ideas? Thanks!

    Thanks. I did that but it didn't work. I found out that it was the adjustment of the speed control lever that was barely touching the safety switch. I adjusted it and no problem now. Thanks though!
