    I have 2 mtd 8/24's, track drive. I had the carb rebuilt on one last year. For the most part, it runs fine, but sometimes, gets choked out due to too much fuel in the bowl. I checked the float, it's ok, no holes or fuel in it. Day before, it ran fine for the first 4 hours, then started acting up again, so I have to push the fuel release on the bowl to let fuel out, then goes ok, but have to do this repeatedly when it starts doing it and almost seems to be in the same spot (after coming back around) , not on big slope, so not a problem getting fuel, and sometimes seems to do it after I fill up??..... . Sometimes it happens at the begining of the day, or end, you never know. Any advice is appreciated and thanks in advance.

    check your gas tanks for sediment in them, especially the plastic ones that you carry around in the back of truck
