John Deere 425 Kawasaki engine

14 years ago

This mower has run flawlessly for years, but started not wanting to start about a month ago. Found a loose wire, fixed that and it starts now, but will often try to stall , especially for the first half hour or so. I can usually keep it running by throttling back, but it chugs and rumbles and tries to die.Seems like sit's flooding or starving for fuel. it will then suddenly clear up and run fine. It's been in to the shop twice for this, and they can't figure it out. It's making me crazy! It had a full JD service last year, new oil and plugs this year. it has about 1280 hours on it, but hasn't skipped a beat until now. Any advice appreciated!
