Since it runs for more than an instant under load I'd say you have a fuel starvation issue and if a simple carburetor adjustment doesn't do the trick then you may need to remove the carburetor and soak and recondition it. Post back with all ID numbers (engine and chassis) so we can see specifically what you have for equipment, we'd like to know if you have an adjustable carburetor or not.

The numbers you posted are chassis numbers and for engine issues we need engine ID numbers, please.

ss396350hp, first let me appologize. Sorry I didn't get back to you earlier. You will have only one fuel related carburetor adjustment and this will be on the right side of the carb (as you're looking at the carb from the choke end) and this should be set, initially, at one and three-quarters turn out from seated. Gently turn this needle in until bottomed and then back out 1 3/4 turns. Start here and report back with the outcome.
