    I am losing power when cutting , so it will not cut even. I have a lesco 60" zero turn with a 24hp kaw. I thought it could be a pulley locking up??

    Sooo, Did you check blade spindles and idlers for locking up ?

    Kawi's are known for eating coils, Make sure it's running of both cylinders.

    Start the engine then remove each plug wire one at a time with rubber handle pliers etc, If the engine dies when one is removed the coil on the other side is bad.
