Thanks for using and for being a valued member.

I am sorry to hear of the issues you’re having with the carburetor and engine. I know how inconvenient it is to have the mower down and out.

Based upon the mower model of 917.387131, I show it uses a Tecumseh engine with a model of 143.974500. It could be that the linkage isn’t opening the throttle properly, but it could also be a blocked fuel jet within the carburetor. You didn’t mention if you’ve done anything with the carb such as a cleaning, rebuild, or replacement.

For convenience, I have provided a copy of a service manual applicable for this Tecumseh engine. The governor and linkage section starts on page 26.
