Customer Question

My club cadet sit on mower runs ok for around half an hour then the engine starts missing and spluttering. I have cleaned the spark plug but it hasn't made any difference. Does the carburettor need adjusting and if so how?

Carburetor has no adjustment. Try loosing the fuel cap when it acts up, the tank may not be venting. How old is the unit? Have the valves ever been adjusted? If valves are too tight, it can cause misfiring and loss of power when hot.
