If you can test the alternator after it has run for 2 hours that would be helpful,if it is quiting after it gets hot then it likely need the stator replaced in the alternator.If this is not the case,then you need to either replace the park lock solenod valve or the instrument cluster is overheating a transistor and failing,this will cause the safety interlock circut to engage.Also the operator pressence switch may need to be relocated if the operator is less then 150lbs.Let me know how you make out,thanks.

    If the alternator remains working then the forward solenoid could be the problem,it may be heating up and not engaging.You need to get the codes from the machine and then go from there,but likely you need the forward solenoid valve replaced or the enable valve,the codes should take you to the problem.

John Deere 310d 4+4 1996 turbo , runs great for a hour then starts surging and loosing power,then dies ,will start back but does same thing until cools completely off

check for vent in the tank
possible that it is blocked and the hot fuel is pressurizing the system causing an over fuel situation
if the return had a glass ball in it it is there for a reason so removing it may not have been a good idea
have a jd service center check it out

Keep getting a manifold overheating beep. even after light use. after 1/2 hour of starting machine. We clean the radiator before each use and air cleaner is good to go

Check the exhaust silencer for blockage, hold your hand at the end of the pipe and feel if there is a fair amount of pressure while it is running, if not, replace

Have a john deere sabre turn key won't start thought battery was dead charged battery still won't start jump start with car battery it will start then . try to engage reverse with blades running it...

Some mowers have a mowing reverse safety switch. That safety will kill the mower if you try to reverse with the deck engaged. Some mowers even have an override button that has to be held while backing up. As for the battery thing, no matter how much you charge a bad battery you will not get it to start a mower if it has a bad cell or two. I would use a multimeter to check battery voltage, but the end result would still be the same, replace the battery.

I hope this gets you going again.

Do I need to replace all tires on peg perego john deere

On these, only the 2 rear wheels are the gear wheels. You will just need to replace the tires on those with the rubber ones if you choose to go that way.  Good luck!
