Lever does hold positions, Gas engine. Model 345 John Deere 2001 330 hours on it.
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 1 year ago

Kawasaki engine, Have you replaced the spark plugs, and fuel filter, air filter clean? Are the springs on the carburetor linkage loose ? Try to take any slack out, but ry not to add tension, as more tension will raise rpm level.

If adjusting the springs does not help, I would run a cylinder test, loosen the spark plug wires and with engine idling, remove one spark plug wire at a time. Engine should continue to run. If it dies when either wire is removed, the opposite cylinder is not firing. With Kawasaki engine, misfire is usually a bad coil, which makes it lope when not under load.

Curtis B. I checked all springs on carb. Seem to be fine, cables for throttle and choke are tite. I pulled the wires off each spark plug engine keep running. Adjusted throttle cable seems to run somewhat better. Checking the spark plugs for gap they are set at 10m is that the right setting ?
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 1 year ago

10m is a little to wide, 8 to 9 would be my choice. .025 to .030 inch. But I doubt it will affect the surging/
