Ok, I've dismantled and cleaned the low pressure side of the fuel system. I haven't replaced the fuel filters yet as I'm not near anywhere at the moment that I can get them. But was told they were new when I purchased the tractor and its only done 80hrs since then, so I cant see they'd be the problem.
The fuel tap/bowl did not have a screen on it - I was hoping this being clogged would have been the problem but no joy. There was a bit of crap in the fitting which screws into the tank but not enough to cause a problem. I dismantled the lift pump as well. I put it all back together and made sure everything was tight. If i remove the pipe that feeds the injector pump, I can pump the lift pump and get a small stream of fuel coming out so there didnt appear to be any major restriction.

I took it back out to the field with the mower and got about 30m before it started losing power and stalled again - bled the pump and got about another 20-30m and same thing. If anything its worse than before!

My lift pump has always been a bit weak I thought - whenever I've had to hand prime it just didnt seem to move a lot of fuel with each pump and I can never get a good spurt from the bleed screws - just a dribble, could this be a problem? It certainly sounds like a fuel starvation problem, I can drive it all day long at lower revs/load, it just seems to be at load ~1300-1500rpm that it dies.

Ok, it does sound like you have a fuel lift pump problem. possibly either dirt in some of the valves or just a weak or busted diaphram. On pumping the lift pump you should be sending fuel from the bleed screws out at least 2-3 foot from the tractor. Try a new lift pump they are not very expensive....I sell them for about 17sterling.....does not take much downtime to cover that expense! Sam
