    I have a exmark lazer z with a 23 horse kohler it is about 4 years old and it started running way too rich. it floods with gas at an idle then smothes out at full throttle. I have sprayed carburater cleaner through the filter changed the fuel filter and air filters. If you can help i sure could use it before i break down and carry it in to a mechanic.
    Thanks for your help

    Probably a speck of crud on the carb needle & seat,

    not common on the exmark kohler combo but it could very well be. my guess is the choke is not opening all the way check that first. allways look to the simple stuff first.saves a lot of time sometimes
