Alright you guys,
I got something new. Since I have had plenty of time this weekend, I decided to give the carb another cleaning. I double checked all the passages and re-cleaned them with carb cleaner and compressed air. Put it back together, and gave it another go. I can actually get the deck on and drive around as long as I don't put it to cut grass. As soon as I do, it begins to die down until it stalls.
Here is the new thing I noticed. I opened the gas tank to make sure I had enough fuel and reached down to check if the valve was fully opened when I bumped into the fuel line and a lot of bubbles started to come out. Shook it a few more times and I was surprised at how much bubbles I had in there. I think that is my problem. Air is replacing my fuel and starving my engine. I know the hole on the cap is working fine, and I also know, every time when I open the fuel valve, my fingers are wet from fuel. I just never thought it was a problem but I bet that is where the air is coming from. I'll be looking for a gasket or new valve this week.
Thanks again for looking
