My 184 also stalls when engaging the mower deck on the Woods 59. I've found that pulling the choke half way out when starting the mower keeps the engine from stalling.

I’d look for an obstruction, somewhere in your fuel system, between the fuel cap and the manifold. Assuming that you have a Zenith carb on your 184, I’d try the screen in the fuel inlet elbow at the carb first.

I do the same with my 184. This is especially important if it isn't fully up to operating temp.
Also, engage the mower deck around 1/2 throttle. It takes a good bit of torque to spin up those blades.
