It started as a minor issue it slowly became hard to start when cold, choke didnt help which Ive always needed to use for about 10 seconds upon start up (normal and always started instantly that way) In order to start it I have to pull start it and drop it into 1st to start it once it starts it runs rough and if I dont give it fuel past half it dies or runs choppy like lack of fuel then dies shortly after. Once I let it warm up fully, it starts up like normal and runs great seems as fast as any other day. Also the jet that had the cover on it I removed to adjust it after my 155 jet install I cant remember the average adjustment after cleaning my carb. thanks guys help me please ha

this is the most common thing on these machines. hard start when cold and then starts fine and runs fine once warmed up is a sure sign the valves are past due for adjustment. the clearances have gotten too tight and if you continue to bump start it and run it that way the valves will hit the piston and trash your engine. the valves need to be adjusted by checking the clearances and installing the required thinner shims. here is a thread to help you out.
