I got it from my grandma, it is a 2006 model and I have had it since 2008. Lots of acres of land have been mowed with this mower.I can easily bet up to 1500-2000 acres.

I lost my grandma to cancer to, but she had moved from her farm to a house in town by then, so she didn't have a mower.

Fuel starvation. Check fuel flow from the fuel tank all the way to the bowl. With the bowl removed, fuel should pour out. I have a feeling it won't. So chase the problem upstream until you find the beaver dam. Also, make sure your fuel cap is vented.  Cool  Good luck!

MMMMM.... a common problem with some of the newer machines is the fuel cap has a rubber bladder/diaphram on the bottom... similar to what you would find in a master cylinder. I have a TBP in the yard right now with less than 5 hours run time (but it sat for 5 years) and the diaphragm has deteriorated to small pieces that clogged the whole fuel system. Had to remove all the hoses, clean the carb, empty and blow out the tank. I replaced the diaphram with a paper (cardboard) disk.

I'd suggest going the largest size before you start cutting brass. (Cleaning out all the gunk). Then going one sixe larger. You might want to pickup a set of number drills (60-80). If you're going to work on carbs, you're going to use them a lot!

The problem with high altitude is it makes the mixture run RICH. More fuel than air is available. I think you are going the wrong direction on your jet sizes... for high altitude, you need to lean the mixture. That has been y experience, anyway... after moving from Fla to the mountains of MT, I had to re jet my VW bug 'cause it kept flooding.
