Testimonial: "Sorry, I guess I did not explain the problem very well. It is not the engine. The engine is making good power. The problem is with the Hydrostat transmission. The fluid level is full, the cooling fan is working but it gets hot and will not pull up the same hill that it has pulled just fine for the last 8 years."
It may very well be ready to blow up
you need a two cycle machine for hills, 4 cycle mowers are dumed
it slows on hills and stops because the crankshaft, camshaft, wrist pin and piston are not getting lubricated properly and just about to seize up

i know the camp verde hill of which you speak , last vehicle in the shop with that same scenario , after doing everything possible including a catalyst check , as we could not duplicate the problem , we replaced fuel pump at owners request and next trip he confirmed it was a fix .

Ouch! you've got engine coolant in the exhaust from a leak somewhere...DO NOT run this engine until you get someone (dealer is best in this instance) to diagnose ($50-125)

i would have the fuel pump pressure checked, connect a fuel pressure gauge drive around and monitor the fuel pressure
operating pressure 276-370 kPa (40-55 psi) Pressure decay in 5 Minutes 55 kPa (8 psi max)

Check our air filter. Nine times out of ten it is something very minor .If you have not changed your air filter in a while, this could cause the loss of power going uphill. On flat ground the vehicle does not have to work as hard as uphill. If your air filter is dirty, this will hamper the carb from breathing properly, thus no power.
