SOURCE: Stalls when engage blades in forward, but cuts fine in reverse

Did you try to disengage the safety feature that should shut the tractor off when the blades are engaged and the tractor is placed in reverse? I believe that it is located under the shift leaver

SOURCE: john deere mower won't engage

on the engine there is a shaft with 2 pullys ,drive belt goes to the top closet to the engine lower pully is for the deck
there also is a saftey switch located on the deck which should shut down blade operation when raised. check the mandrels for broken bearings by grabbing the pully and wiggle them back and forth looking for movement could be possible that one madrel is shot giving you that bad sound which is crushed bearings

Kohler engine troubleshooting


Engine hunting is usually down to fuel starvation, this can be dirt in the carb, or the fuel pump is not working correctly, or the anti fire solinoid on the base of the float bowl is not working correctly, you can check the fuel flow from the pump by removing the fuel hose from the carb, place the hose in a suitable container now crank the engine, there should be a good flow of fuel, if so replace the hose, now remve the fuel solinoid from the bottom of the fuel bowl ( place a suitable bowl under the carb as there will be a flow of fuel) switch the igntion on, there should be a click and the small pin in the centre of the solinoid should retract into the housing, if this is ok then there is dirt in the carb so you will have to clean the jets in the carb itself.

When trying to start fuel spits out of the carburator


Remove carb float bowl. Clean bowl. Get model no. of engine and get new float bowl gasket set at mower repair store. Ensure float drops down freely with float bowl removed. Push up on float to stop fuel flow. If not working properly replace float and meter needle.

Kohler magnum 18 engine starts cold fine. the longer it runs the more choke is necessary to keep running. eventually when hot it wants to stall. also when going downhill it wants to stall. changed fuel...


01 Sounds like it is running out of fuel because it wants you to choke it to get more fuel.
02 Might have a restriction in a fuel line. Disconnect at carb and see if there is a good flow of fuel.
03 Loosen the fuel tank cap and see if the same thing happens. Cap might not be venting.
04 Any black smoke from muffler?

Mower starts runs begins to back fire and run


Sounds like it is leaning out, running out of fuel. That can be the strainer at the gas tank, any fuel filters it has. Disconnect the fuel line from the carb and see how good the flow is to it, and check for water. A new spark plug never hurts.
