Customer Question

Hello, my craftsman mower was running fine and then half power. It still runs just no power. I tested the compression and that was good, has spark. Could you give me some suggestions?

Engine on riding mower? Do you have a full tube of fuel getting to the carburetor from the fuel tank? Is this gravity flow from the tank, or does it have a fuel pump? Engine model will be SV490S-????
