    hello guys,

    i got a john deere lx176 riding mower that doesnt seem like it is choking right. when i push the lever all the way up it really doesnt choke. i have to crank on it for a bit to get enough gas to get it started. once i get it started it runs fine and starts easy the rest of the day.

    any ideas?

    Clean and lube the control panel (where the cable mounts to the engine) and the cable and try again.

    If still no go, Loosen the cable mount screw and slide about 1/8" more through the clamp and try it again. If it still won't start try sliding a little more.
