i have a White L-12 with a B&S 12 HP on it. ill turn it on with the throttle down and the carb gets stuck open. i have to put the throttle ALL the way up and idle it down to get it unstuck. sometimes i have to just drive a little bit. why is it getting stuck open?

Does your throttle shaft turn and return freely?If it's tight or your butterfly is rubbing on the inside of the venturi,either of those would cause it to stick.It may be as simple as spraying the throttle shaft with penetrating oil.

Eaither that or the throttle shafts wore, if it's old enough.
