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.

Sorry I didn't get photos, Sad I found out the 5 speed is a 844 peerless, and for now I'm just doing maintenance to the hydro, 20w-50 motor oil is what is required for the oil

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.
