LT155 Carburetor replacement question

245 Views 3 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Cannon51
I replaced the existing carburetor with an inexpensive version. When I put the throttle to choke, it seems it floods and won't start. If I get the throttle adjustment in just the right spot the mower will start, but the engine does surge a bit when running. Has anyone experienced this issue with the cheap carb replacements?

I would start with making sure there are no air leaks, such as a torn or missing gasket, and that the throttle linkage is functioning properly (choke fully opens/closes, springs are all in the original spots) then try adjusting the carb's hi & low speed mixture screws.
