Re: john deere lawn mower
Surging under load is normally means something goofy with the internal governor gear. Could also be caused by the two governor springs getting out of sync.
Does it surge without a load on the engine. Hold the throttle steady and see how it runs. If it runs poorly, then that usually means a dirty carb issue, or possible intake air leak. if runs steady then usually means mechanical governor problem.ILLINOIS ENGINE, BEECHER CITY, IL
