I have a 1997 345 18hp Kawasaki. It has run great until today. Would not start today with the throttle up and the choke on. It did start and run with the throttle at idle. Its dies when I try to advance the throttle.
I removed the air cleaner, removed the gas cap neither helped. I can see the choke and governor linkage are both free. I can accelerate the engine with the governor. Not sure what to check next.
