Engine seems to run fine but when mower is engaged it loses power. It is a john deere 325.


Check to see if the mowing deck spins free or somewhat free with the engine off, It might be wrapped up with twine or something stopping from spinning, this will bog down the engine. Hope this helps.

Engine runs fine til hot.


I think one of the intake valves, or a valve pushrod, is bent or warped. When the engine heats up, the metal expands and the valve starts sticking open. That would cause compression to be lost in one cylinder, reducing available power so things drag when you engage the blades. This would also causes air/fuel to be blown back through the intake. I think you'll need to take it to a small engine mechanic. Good luck! Please rate my solution if helpful, thanks.

http://www.deere.com/en_US/govsales/purchaseguide/PDFs/124_125.pdf
Will give you all the info you could need about the LT 166.
The LT166 uses a 303777 Briggs & Stratton Engine
The LT180 uses a FH500V-AS32 Kawasaki Engine, 4 Cycle
The LT190 uses a FH580V Kawasaki Engine.
The LX289 uses a FD501V-DS04 Kawasaki V-Twin Engine.
The X354 uses a FH721V Kawasaki with 4 wheel steer.

Hope this helps.

Idle hunting


I feel that with the description you have given, that the problem lies with your carby.
It's either
- the choke is coming on
- the carby needs a service. Either a shaft is sticking or the fuel jets are blocked.
- low engine oil
these could all cause the above problem
