I have a john deere 420 rider. It would surge at a higher speed. It is a hydrostatic and there were 2 bolts on the transmission that were loose. now it runs beautifully smooth,

look by the carboreter and there is a little screw with a spring. turn the screw a half turn and try to start it, then try another half turn, and keep expirementing.

It is probably the fuel pump. If I remember the number correctly, this fuel system needs about 50 lbs to open a valve.
Until this valve opens, no fuel gets to the fuel nozzels.

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.
