    I have an 03 kohler, with 1000 hours. Was dumping too much fuel to the carb. Figured out it was accelerator pump/diaphram. Had small hole in it causing it to suck too much fuel. Seems to have ironed it out but now when I go through heavy grass it wants to bog. When I pull the govorner rod it seems to work ok but I cant figure out why it wants to bog down. It did not do this prior to the diaphram ripping. Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated.

    Fuel restriction maybe, I would check filter to see if it is dirty. Replace as necessary.
