Customer Question

I have a 17 1/2 hp briggs & stratten troy bilt lawn tractor, I put a new sparkpug, new air filter, and change oil. In forward gear the tractor runs a little rough, but in reverse it runs better. In forward gear the tractor seems like it is laboring to run. I also put fresh gas in tank.
