This sounds like there still is a problem in the carburetor. You may have to remove the carburetor and give it a complete cleaning and overhaul using a complete carburetor kit. Also make sure that you are using FRESH 89 octane gas. Old gas will cause a lot of problems.

If this is a riding mower and if it is a 2 cylinder engine, you may have one of the cylinder that is not working. Take one of the plug wires off when the engine is running and see if itdies or stays the same.If it dies, then the other cylinder is not working .If it does not change the way it runs then that cylinder is not working.
