Customer Question

Craftsman Kohler 26 HP YTS 4500 Rider. Removed 3 bladed deck for cleaning. Now the engine smooth until under load and will only cut shorter grass. Engine runs for quite a while then sputters and quits. Will start after blowing through the gas line.

Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! Did you raise unit when changing belt on deck? Have you checked the fuel supply to the fuel filter> a new fuel filter,and the flow to the carburetor from the fuel pump? I'm thinking trash has gotten into the line from the tank to the carburetor.
