I have a 22 Briggs Intek V twin in a 1998 Craftsman mower tractor that acts like its loading up when you run it. It don't want to run wide open. If you throttle it way down it will try to straighten up but still doesn't want to take fuel. If you engage the mower deck it will kill the engine. Any of you guys that mess with these newer engines have any ideas ? I drug it home this way.

Pull & read the plugs..  White = lean, black = fouled..  Sometimes swapping them helps with a firing problem..  Describing the symptoms is one thing but checking the thing out is better way to help folks help you more.  A sticking fuel solenoid or other fuel supply problem or even a bad head gasket..  Just a few things to consider..

If you have an IR temp gun, check the temp of the heads. I suspect a dead hole due to a valve problem, but a bad plug may not be too far off either.

I did already check the plugs and they comfirmed rich Being black and carboned up some.

Pouring a tad of gas into the carb loads it up worse.

I know this may off base but I had a 72 Dodge that would load up and it was the choke sticking. Just a thought but worth a check.
