john deere lx-188 17hp kawasaki liquid cooled
Engine runs smooth without air cleaner housing and element.
Fitted new element, plugs, coils and cleaned carb.
Once I fit the air cleaner element and housing, the engine would not rev properly, runs smokey and uneven as if the choke is activated, which is not the case.
Can anyone please give me some advice as where to start looking for the possible problem?
