Well on the continuing saga of getting to know every piece of this gator before using it. I solved the water in the oil issue and now it is back together and it starts up and runs good. I have 2 issues 1 is the idle is too high and its immpossible to get it into forward or reverse without using the choke to lower the rpms. Also when I finally get it in gear it feels like it is always at say 1/2 throttle no matter what. I can use the choke to kill the motor or slow it down but I know that is not a good solution. I have read the service manual about adjusting all of this but man is it confusing. Does anyone have any insight on how to fix this?

The plate that has the springs, etc on it has two nuts holding it on. Try slackening off the nuts and moving the plate. This *should* make a big difference to the idle speed. ....

I am not sure what plate you are reffering too. The issue is on the actual carb there are 2 butterflys the front one is the choke the back one is the throttle if I am correct. It looks like JD doesn't believe that the throttle should be a simple thing. The back butterfly kinda free floats with a rod that pushes it forward but not back. I solved the issue by putting a spring on the throttle that holds it closed until it is pushed open by the rod. Then when you release the gas it shuts. It make it a bit jerky but at least I can get it in gear and drive the dam thing. ....
