Hi folks, I just signed up here to see if you could offer any pointers as to what is wrong with this thing. I bought it dirt cheap so it's not imparitive that I fix it but it does run mostly so I want to give it a good try to get it working right. It starts mostly OK but then when you pull it off choke it will run a few seconds or longer then die or after it's warm it will sputter and cough then die or maybe try to run till I choke it and then it might pick up again. I have taken off the carb, freed up the choke linkage, cleaned it fairly well inside and out. I had to replace the main Idle screw on the carb because the old one was snapped off. I dumped the gas tank and cleaned it out too. It seems as if the automatic throttle system can't keep up and the idle adjustment screw doesn't seem to do a whole lot. I also don't understand what the bleed screw that is close to it does or if it is just screwed down tight or needs to be tweaked also. The thing has been sitting, is dirty, and appears to have been abused and not maintained for a long time. It also kind of surges with no load and usually trys to die if I engage the blade unless I choke it and ease it on slowly. 14SB mower serial gx14sbc229350 jd202 engine Kawasaki Code FC150v-es00 E/NO FC150B28643 I could use a place to download a manual to help figure this out also if available. I have seen the exploded diagrams on the Kawasaki site but no trouble shooting adjustment info as far as I could tell. I haven't tuned it up and like that because I'm trying to see if it's a easy fix and worth salvaging, before I waste a lot of money and time on it. Thanks!
