    The mower always starts up fine, but while running under normal cutting conditions the mower will sometimes rev down, spit, and cough, but when I throw it in neutral and shut off the blades it runs normal. It only does this some of the time. When It does do this it'll act as if its choking, and the engine acts like its going to shut off, but I can shut off the blades and shift to neutral and it runs fine.... I think it might not be getting enough fuel? or could it be electrical?

    Please Help, JIm

    ckeck the main circuit of the carburetor. when the engine is not loaded it is actually getting alot of the fuel from the idle circuit.
