I have a YTH2448 Tractor that overheats

I have a YTH2448 Tractor. For the past few month's it has been overheating before I can complete mowing my 1 1/4 acre lot. The engine is clean, I just rebuilt the carb, but cannot find out why it is overheating. The only other thing I did was to change the Deck belt, which was very tight when I put it on over 6 months ago. Any ideas??

    Thanks for the suggestiuons and the documents. The overheating actually started before I rebuilt ther carburator. The local dealer's service team had no ideas, so to eliminate the carburator, I rebuilt it. I had the oil changed by the service company as well, to make sure I was using the right weight, that was no help either. Could valve adjustments cause overheating? That's the only other thing I could think of.

Although blockages in the shroud and cooling fins are the most common cause of overheating, a small gas engine can also overheat if the fuel-air mix is too lean. Are you sure the carb overhaul kit had the right parts, and is there any possible of adjusting the mixture? Here is a set of parts diagrams for your tractor - Engine-2 has the carburetor-related parts. Good luck!

2166 stalls after it heats up


Sounds like you've got a bunch of debris around the engine, not allowing it to cool properly. I'd pull the shroud off the engine, and clean out any accumulated debris and clippings (considering your symptoms, I'd expect a lot of it. My preferred method is to use an air gun connected to my compressor - I don't like spraying under the shroud with pressurized water.

Need a new lawn mower! what would you buy? and why... thanks, jana I'm over and under whelmed depending on the marketing or consumer reviews I'm reading.


Well I do now know if you want a riding mower and how much yard you are mowing. If you are mowing 1 acre or more and the land is fairly level I would recommend a Dixon or Bad Boy ZTR mower. The Bad Boy sells for $4,999 at Tractor Supply and is a well built heavy duty mower. The Dixon will be slightly cheaper and it also a quality mower. The Cub Cadet & Husqvarna are cheaply built mowers that sell for less but are not dependable. You get what you pay for. If you are looking for a push mower then the Cub Cadet is a decent mower for the price and the Honda is a top notch quality mower that sells for much more.

I am betting you will not believe this, but, your battery is bad. I just had the same problem last month. Same, same. I have always had good luck with jumper cables, but there was something wrong with the mower battery. When I removed it and replaced with new one, everything is as new.

Do you recomend this equipment for 5 acres area?


Possibly, if it does have a a Kohler engine. Avoid A B&S engine. They simply would not hold up well to the heat and wear of that much acreage. I would recommend a John Deere, but, they are not cheap however parts are easily accessible, you can buy a cd with all repair info and their repairs are certified. I have gone through 2 brands of mowers with B&S engines, they literally threw rods and I only mow 1.3 acres.

Cutting size question


* f your yard is up to an acre in size, the ideal cutting width is 30-42" (76-106cm). To avoid being underpowered, or putting too much strain on the engine, make sure your mower or tractor offers a minimum 14 horsepower. Riding mowers are the most commonly purchased for lawns this size. * For a yard that is between one and three acres, you’ll reduce your mowing time with a cutting width of 42-46" (106-116cm) and a strong engine up to 16 HP. Typically people purchase lawn tractors for yards of this size. * If you’re mowing more than three acres, you’ll need to look at the garden tractors, with cutting widths up to 54" (137cm) and at least an 18 HP engine, preferably bigger.
