Got the deck fixed but I can't get the carb adjusted right. It stalls out under a heavy load.

Going to try soaking the carb again in carb cleaner this time. My dad had some diesel so we tried that the first round.

Got it running and mowed the field. Only problem so far is it smoke a little at low throttle.

One thing that was found that it is running rich Andy tried adjusting the setting. The float it right but I saw something about brass floats needing assist spring,

I got new bearings coming for the deck but I don't think I will need to mow for awhile. It looks like the pasture is done growing for the summer.

I replaced the fiber float in my SS-16 with a brass float - no assist spring. I adjusted it for 1/8 inch clearance per the manual - no problems. I did see articles on the assist spring - if you want to try it, this is the link for the spring referenced - http://www.casegarde...m/14sponfl.html

Good luck,

Jim
