My LT 1500 with a 17.5 Briggs governor hunts setting with the trotle at mow speed.
I test fuel flow and it has fuel.
So is there a next step ,cause I think if I adjust my kohler needle valve it will do the same thing , if it's out adjustment.
This has a soleniod on the bottom of the carb bowl and I don't know what it does ? I pull the wire connec tion off and no chage , still huns. So what should I do next? thanks

You pulled the wire on the Fuel solenoid and it still ran? Ummmm I'm gona say the Solenoid is either gummed up or it's shot.That solenoid when working correctly Cuts the fuel to the Main jet when you turn the key off.


They are a bit Expensive if you can find one.Usually around $40.
