    I don't quite follow what you mean above, Did you get the throttle cable adjusted correctly after re-installation of the carb ?

    Did the governor spring drop off when you removed the carb ?

    Sorry about that "fuse/pulse" should have been "FUEL/PULSE Pump". Govenor spring is in place. It just "feels" like the choke is partially engaged. It will run fine at high idle with blades engaged but when i start to cut, even SHORT grass, it will "Bogg down" it seems like only 3/4 throttle when cutting.
