Changed all belts. Now when you try to engage blades, chokes down and starts backfiring and engine dies.


try to engage the blades with the engine off and check the tension of the belts...they can be too tight causing too much torque on the pulleys and extra strain on the engine.

Why does my rover rancher stall when i go to engage the cutting deck


1>the pressure switch under the seat may be malfunctioning? (it will cause the engine to die immediately when trying to engage the cutting blades because it thinks your not sitting in the seat.
2>dirty or clogged air cleaner element will cause engine to die when engaging cutting blades. This can be tested very easily by removing the air cleaner element and then trying to engage the blades again. If this works then replace air cleaner element immediately before running the engine anymore.
I have personally experienced both of these problems myself more that once.

17.5 briggs motor back fired 1 time and now when i engage blades the motor boggs down


The engine is timed internally and externally. Sometimes when it backfires the external timing key where the flywheel and crankshaft join will be damaged enought to put the engine out of time. The engine may run but when put under a load such as cutting grass it will fail. This is about a 30 minute repair and about $2.00 in parts.

14sb engine running when blade clutch is engaged the lawnmower stalls.


Normally I believe this mower to have a Kawasaki engine, and the main jet and 'pilot air hole' need to be cleaned. You are running a lean condition, and when the blade is engaged, the engine does not have enough fuel to continue the extra load. A small test for this is to engage the blade and the choke at the same time. If the engine has enough fuel to continue running and engage the blade, this confirms the lean fuel condition. Cleaning those jets will solve the issue.

Stops running after 2 minuets


Honda engines have an oil sensor that sometimes fails. It will cause this. If the sensor fails it is like not having enough oil and will kill the engine for protection. Just something to look into. Hope this helps
