    long story short.

    while dx a bad coil i ended up pulling the carb. and cleaning it.

    got the new coil in it but now its not running good when not under load.

    can i adjust these carbs or did i mess something up when i took it apart?

    How about a model and spec number so I can see exactly what your dealing with ?

    i'm going to try the old carb spray round the gasket test and see if i'm sucking in air.

    maybe i just need new gaskets.

    grass...... A CV740 is a 25 hp not 27, There were a couple different carbs used over the years......

    Without a proper engine model AND spec number my hands are tied.....

    You know as much as I do. My engine sticker is gone.

    Everride warrior states 27hp kohlers on all info.

    I don't really know much else. That's the manual that came with it. Cv740 is all it says.

    Sure,

    Just like this one. I sprayed carb spray around it, didn't hear any difference. I did that and tightned up the studs. It seems to be gone now. I have a feeling the problem is still there. http://m.ebay.com/itm/131173271346?nav=SEARCH

    That's a non adjustable carb, Did you remove the top plate and clean the low speed ports out ? In most cases the gasket sticks and rips upon removal, That can cause a air leak and bad idle......

    Did you do anything with the accelerator pump ?
