Sorry Dunnnutt, but the throttle cable is quite far away from the brake pedal mechanism. Try this Buckijoe: The brake pedal has a switch (look under the tractor) which avoids cranking the engine unless the pedal is fully depressed. A defective switch and related cabling might ground the ignition thus killing the engine when you release the pedal.

It sounds like your throttle cable is caught up with the brake pedal.

Idles fine, shuts down when release brake.


It could be the brake switch bad, if this model came with one. When it is depressed it will start, but when it is released it may not be switching to stay running.

Tractor Will Not Move And Dies When Brake Is Released


I would check the wires and clean the connectors and make sure seat switch is working. If that is not working, it's like getting off the seat without holding the brake/clutch pedal down or getting off seat with blades engaged. Both will cause engine to die.
