    LT 180 Problem

    My LT 180 runs out of power only when going down hills. On the flats and up hills it runs fine. New fuel filter was installed and problem still exists. Any ideas to this problem??

    Probably the float bowl is not filling up all the way

    I don't have any experience with that mower but I'm sure there are some guys on here that could help walk you through it if you have never taken apart a carb.

    When you say it runs out of power do you mean engine or transmission? Does it act the same with the deck engaged or not? I'm leaning toward carb issues like Bflener suggests. It could be as simple as a piece of dirt in the bowl that gets sucked up at certain times so maybe just dropping the bowl for an inspection will help. It looks like the LT180 is a Kawi twin cylinder so that may require removing a couple things to get to the carb but my only first hand experience is with a LX188. Good luck

    First I'll try Sea-Foam and go from there.
