kohler 14 hp

I have a wheelhorse with a 14 hp kohler.Its ran great all summer to day when I went to cut grass,the tractor started right away and ran good until I engage the mower then the engine stalls and dumps raw fuel out the carb. I could sure use some help with this. Thank you

Sounds like you have a flooding carburetor. Replacement of the float and/or needle and seat is probably all you'll need to do. If you pull the carb bowl off and find a bunch of trash in it, clean it out and try again. It could just be trash hanging the needle open.
