Fuel problem with John Deere 23hp engine
time to pull the hose off the fuel pump coming from the tank and drain the tank and check flow of gas coming from tank hose, and possibly inline fuel filter is plugged or there is junk in your tank/line from tank not letting enough fuel to run to pump so pump can pump it to carb !

Power more 173 cc will not start unless I poor a little gas in carb, runs for a few seconds. cleaned carb full of fuel, bowl fills up. manuel choke works, no gas shut off valve, two butterfly valves.
My first thought would be the screw that holds the carb bowl. It has a little orifice and 4 holes evenly spaced around the base of the screw and it is vital that all holes and orifices are completely free of gunk and trash or varnished gummed up stuff. That must be cleaned. I use B-12 Chemtool carb jet spray. I suggest using compressed air as well. An old guitar string (G,B,or E strings) works well but do not make sharp bends with the wire! It will snap off at the right time and poke your finger. This case calls for a little common knowledge Lol. And supposing the main jet has been sprayed and blown out. Main jet is the tube with many evenly spaced holes around it. Some are removable. I clean my carbs using a welders torch tip cleaner files. Never ever ever force a wire too large in these orifices and holes. Always use the nxt smaller size wire.
