Question (about John Deere Lawn Mowers)

John Deere 175 Carburetor Settings

Does anyone have the settings for the idle and mixture adjustment for a John Deere 175 with a 14 HP Kawasaki engine. I made the mistake of changing mine in an attempt to get it running better and I don't know what they are supposed to be set at. Thanks in advance for the help.

    Turn idle mixture screw clockwise until lightly seated, then counterclockwise 1-1/8
    turns. (If this (and the attached diagram)doesn't help you out, let me know)

      Thanks for the adjustment information. I will try that tonight and let you know how it works. I was unable to find the attached diagram though...I am new to the forum...Is there something special that I need to do?

      It's a little confusing to me also (I'm also not that experienced here) but I posted attachments previously and had to switch to a "gallery" setting......I'll check it out, maybe it got shifted over to that section. If I can find where it ended up, I think it'll help you with the carb control adjustments. -john
