Kawasaki Engine service manual

I have a John Deere LX277 with a Kawasaki FH500V engine. Can someone tell me where I can find a basic service amnual on this engine? All I want is basic tune-up instructions.
Thank you.

The John Deere web site has every single manual for all their equipment. Probably the best web site out there that supports machinery. Go here:

Thank you for that info, but John Deere only offers owner's manuals, which do not contain any information on basic engine tune-up procedures. They want you to take the machine to one of their dealers who charge $$$ per hour to do tune-ups.

Thank you, Restorob. My machine acts like the carb needs adjusting. It sounds like it is running fine with no load, but with the mower blades engaged and going uphill (or in heavy grass), the engine bogs down and acts like it needs more fuel or air. It has new air and fuel filters installed.
Thanks for any tips you can give me, such as where I look to find these adjustments.

Thank you for the kind offer.
My engine seems to run fine except it seems to bog down when going uphill with the mower blades engaged or in thick grass mowing areas. It sounds like it is begging for more fuel or air. I have installed new air and fuel filters. Basically I need to know where the air/fuel adjustments are located and the basic settings for each, so I can see if that is the problem. The engine is not very old and has few hours on it.

There is only two adjustments on your carb., One is idle and the othe is for low speed air mixture. Since your problem is at high spee adjusting the low will not help you. I would suggest checking hig speed RPM which should be 3600 with no load but you need a tachomete to do so which your local repair shop should have. If the high speed i ok I would check the governor adjustment. I tried to attach the tw pages from the Service Manual that showed pictures and explained how t perform these adjustments but each page was too large it said. If yo like I can explain or if you post a Email address and I can send the to you that way, It's your choice
