Sorry. Was too busy today to fool with it. We ended up running across an international 300 utility at a yard sale and rescued it. Maybe I will get a chance to shoot a video of the cub cadet running. I did notice that when moving it it starts right up and runs great but after about 1.5 to 2 minutes it acts like it goes under load like when mowing. A few seconds after tht it acts like it is gonna die then I pull the choke out and let it catch up and push the choke in and all is well. I will try and get a video tomorrow. Too scared to try to mow with it again. Haha

Sounds like dregs in the gas.
Fairly common with the gas we have now with ethanol in it.

I had soaked the carb for about 30 hours in carb dip, then cleaned it well, then reassembled with new kit paying close attention to passages and gasket surfaces. The tank was cleaned well and I added a good bit of MMO to the 1/2 gallon of fuel I put in the tank. I'm thinking its a sticking valve. SHould I put some MMO in the oil too?

IF you have to use choke from time to time to keep eng running this points to a fuel supply problem in addition to possible sticking valve(s) or a leaking head gasket.

Check out the fuel system,look for plugged/restricted filter,plugged restricted or bad hose between tank/pump,plugged outlet on tank,bad/plugged gas shutoff valve(if tractor has),plugged/bad vent cap on tank,weak/bad fuel pump,dirt/water in carb bowl & internal passages of carb body,sticking/bad float,sticking/worn float needle/seat,dirt in float needle seat hole,loose carb or bad mounting gasket for carb.
