When it quits remove the fuel line from the fuel pump to the carburetor and check if the pump is pumping gas while you turn the key to the start position with the brake locked. You could have a bad ignition coil.

SOURCE: Briggs and Stratton 17HP Intek Governer Overspeeds

Can you Regulate the Engine Speed Using the Governor Arm? If Yes, then Reset the Governor. **To Reset the Governor; Loosen the Governor Arm Bolt and Turn the Governor Shaft Clockwise Until it Stops. Using the Governor Arm Hold the Carburetor to Full Throttle. Now with the Shaft Full Clockwise and the Governor Arm and Carburetor Held at Full Throttle, Tighten the Governor Arm Bolt. If the Engine Still Runs Full Throttle, then Reverse the Rotation of the Governor Shaft, but Still Hold the Carburetor at Full Throttle with the Governor Arm. If it Still Runs at Full Throttle, then Check the Internal Governor.** If you Can Not Regulate the Engine Speed Using the Governor Control Arm, then Check the Carburetor Throttle Valve. If the Throttle Control Valve (sometimes called a Flap or Plate) Mounting Screws Came Out of the Control Valve, then you will have No Control Over the Engine Speed. Send me the Model and Type or Spec Numbers Off the Engine, Please. With these I can Locate the Proper Manual and Better Assist you. **The Throttle Cable Attaches to the Throttle Control Bracket. The Cable Moves a Slide that Moves a Pivot. The Pivot has the Spring Attached to it and to the Governor Arm. The Solid Link Connects to the Governor Arm and goes to the Throttle Shaft on the Carburetor. When the Throttle Cable is Moved it Moves the Pivot and the Pivot Pulls the Spring. The Spring Pulls the Governor Arm and the Governor Arm Moves the Throttle Shaft. Usually the Spring is in the Lower Hole in the Governor Arm and the Solid Link is in the Top Hole of the Governor Arm.** If you Hit a Snag or this Does Not Correct the Problem, I am Here if You Require More Assistance. Hope this Helps. Let me Know What Happens

Might be fludding..
If there is a bowl on the carb, pop it off and check the float.. Check for fluid inside the float. If the float is holding any fluid - its bad..
Srpay carb cleaner in there..
Clean the bowl..

SOURCE: Craftsman 16.5hp 42 in. Mower runs for about

I am having a problem with my lawn tractor similar to what you describe. Mine runs fine for 15 to 20 minutes and then stalls. It will start back up and run for a few minutes and then stall again. When it stalls it is like when you get off of the seat with the blades engaged. I have replaced the gas and fuel filter and have cleaned the carb and air cleaner with no effect on this problem. I am now thinking that the problem is the fuel stoper located at the bottom of the carb. There is a plunger screwed into the bottom of the carb bowl that is held down when the key is turned on. If you get off of the seat when the engine is running and the brake is not on or the blades are engaged the stoper is pushed up into the main jet fuel path causing the engine to stall. I am going to fabricate a heat shield around this plunger to see if this corrects the problem.

Poulan 17.5 ran good for about 15 minutes then slowly lost power then stop


Let's hope that it did not run low on oil. Check oil level and condition of oil. If oil looks good, then I would check and see if fuel filter is not clogged. A restricted fuel filter will slowly starve an engine from fuel causing it to slowly lose power and eventually stall out. Make sure your gas tank is free of contaminants as well. Hope This Helps.
