problems with my riding mower


Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the tractor. If the tractor will continue to run with the choke pulled out the problem is a partly plugged main jet. You should be able to cure the problem by cleaning the carburetor. To clean the main jet park the tractor in a well ventilated area. Then use a pair of vise grips to pinch the fuel line so it does not leak. Once it is pinched off, remove the float bowl from the carburetor. Then use a thin wire and carburetor cleaner to flush out the main jet and the emulsion tube. Once they are clear, reassemble the carburetor, and test the operation.

Please click here to go to a site that shows how to rebuild the carburetor. I like to give this site because it shows the parts of the carburetor.
