I'm working on a Toro push mower with a 6.5 HP Tecumseh engine.

Customer Question

I'm working on a Toro push mower with a 6.5 HP Tecumseh engine. Just installed a new carb. It starts and runs great but when I mow through heavy grass it bogs down and eventually dies. Will not restart without priming and have to keep priming to keep it running. Leave it for an hour and it starts right up again (after priming). Suggestions?
