Check your radiator for clogging. The air flow can become restricted with dirt and trash over time causing them to over heat. Also make sure the air path path is clear of debris., your cooling fan, water pump and its drive belt are all good.

I have had clean my JD 650 radiator several times over the years because this very reason.

I do not believe there is a manual available to the public for troubleshooting, however, you have at least 3 switches to tell the mower to stop when blades are engaged or clutch pedal released.

Seat switch
pedal switch
mower engage switch

The pedal and mower lever switches are identical, and have two sides, one for starting, one for blades turning. One side can fail. The pedal switch is on the frame very close to the pivot point of the pedal/shaft. The mower switch will be under the dash close to the bottom of the lever.

1) Locate and inspect the switches for broken or pinch wires, switch housing, or loose mounting, and how each lever or pedal engages the swtich.

2) This is a picture of the wiring so that you can get a better idea of location.

SOURCE: motor chokes and misses under moderate load and loses power

Sounds to me as tho it might need a carburetor adjustment, providing there is an adjustment screw on the carb. Sounds like the engine is running a bit lean. Did this problem occur right after the carb cleaning, or was it there in advance? Is there a fuel filter that might be clogged?

SOURCE: hi have a Toro wheelhorse 212-6. new to us. wont cut.

Yes, there is a switch on the dash. It operates an electric PTO or clutch for the mower blades. That is how most lawn tractors work. Of course , yours could be different, but if it is, It still has a clutch somewhere and a lever to engage the blades. Most of the electric ones are controlled by safety switches, One being in the seat, if you are not in the seat, it will not connect, if you get out of the seat with it running, the engine will cut off. Sometimes one is on the mowing deck, it will not connect if the deck is up. If you cannot get the PTO to work, it could be shot. (Rare) You can hear it go when it starts, check it out, hope this helps.

    How to adjust governer to increase speed on 2002 Jacobsen 1110 hauler?

    If this is a diesel engine then adjusting governor to get more speed will destruct the engine. If the vehicle is slow then when the engine is off have someone apply full throttle and see if you can still move the accelerator lever on the pump. If you can either adjust the lever to full throttle stop position or get a new accelerator cable.

    Tractor starts fine on full choke, but as soon as you put it on throttle it cuts out. it also cant sustain it if you engage gear or turn on the blades to start cutting

    You may have something stuck in the mower deck. If you nuse a mirror you can look under the deck and see if anything is jammed there. If the blades are jammed it will stall the motor.

    I have a 1994 Yamaha 40 HP 3 cylinder 2 stroke engine starts and runs fine in neutral try to accelerate under load and it only will pull about 2800-3000 RPMs and wont go any faster it will rev fine in...

    Reving in neutral does not mean the same thing as under load. If you need to pull 4500rpm under load and for an instant the load was gone, you would probably overrev to 6500. With the cover off and motor not running move the throttle to full forward. Look at your carbs and see if the throttle plates are wide open. If they are not all wide open take it back to the dealer. The throttle adjustment is off. You need the full range of travel from idle to topend.
