Sorry, can't tell you anything regarding the carb but have you checked the air filter and muffler? If either of these are clogged they could be the source of the problem. As for the carb specs, you might try leaving a post at in the Craftsman area.

Here is a new 800 number for those who are unfortunate enough to have purchased a Sear's product. I think they are trying to change their image since this number will (they say) be able to get you in touch with any parts for their or other manufacturers product, owners manuals and repair manuals. I havn't tried it, so let us know if it is helpful....

Can the float actually be set? I would bet on some water in the carb. Have you drained the gas from the plug at the base of the float? I have to do that to mine every time I leave it out in the rain.

Sometimes what happens is the float can get stuck if the mower hasn't been run in a remedy for this is rather barbaric, but works. You just pick the mower up about a foot off the ground and drop it. This usually frees the float, and a carburetor cleaner should be added to the fuel afterwards to remove any build up. A spray-type cleaner should be used on the outside too to remove any build-up that can inhibit the movement of parts.
