My tractor cuts out and dies, then with a recharge, it runs.

The tractor is a 18hp twin II. It starts and runs, then cuts out and dies. If it sits awhile with the battery charging, it runs again for several minutes, then cuts out and dies. Is this an electrical problem? What would cause that? Model number of motor is 422707, type 1229 02, code 9302255B

    Thanks, rjberg. I'll change the oil this week, although I don't have a low oil pressure cutoff switch. It's air cooled, but Ill clean the venting on the head as well.

Not likely, if the battery is any good you should get several hours of run time before it dies. More likely low oil pressure cut off switch, check level or change oil if it's been awile. Or possibly an overheat cuttoff swith, check airlow and coolant if it has a radiator.

Engine dies when hot fuel not pumped round the system kohler 18hp

If the engine has a black pump on the side of the engine it may be faulty, there is a diaphram inside, but the pump is non servicable, it takes a pulse from the cylinder head or rocker box, this pulses the diaphram, which then pumps the fuel, as there is no gravity feed from the tank, it requires the pump to fill the carb.

Need older 18hp b@s hrizontol shaft motor

If you don't run it any longer you make be able to replace the connecting rods and clean the aluminum from the rods off crankshaft with a very fine emery cloth. A clyliner hone and a new set of rings would also be needed.providing the cylinders arent scored. A gasket set and parts would probably set you back about 100 to 150.

It won't start with key; new fuse and new selinode and the starter is fine craftsman riding lawnmower 42 in cut and 18hp

It may possibly be the seat switch. There is a little button under your seat, it is a safety mechanism. It's so the mower won't start without someone actually sitting on it, it will also shut off atuomatically if you fall off. If your good at wiring, and splicing, you can cut the wires and splice them together, and see if it starts. Hope this helps a bit.
