Started the tractor this morning, let it warm up, then proceeded to plow the snow off the drive and lot. After a couple of passes it shut off as though I had turned the key off. Started right back up and after a couple more passes, same thing. After a couple mores passes, it died and would not start. Waited a few minutes, still would not start. Turned the key off then back on and it started but ran sluggish then died. Started up again and ran fine. Finished moving snow and put it back in the shop. The shop is heated. Ran some errands, got back and started it up, let it idle then moved the throttle up to about 1500rpm and it started missing a beat every now and again and then died as though I had turned the key off again.
I'm thinking possibly a fuel flow problem. The sediment bowl never ran out of gas so maybe the screen in the bowl has some gunk in it? Or could this be and electrical issue? And the way it just died instantly doesn't seem point to a fuel problem does it?
I know I need to do more searching to pin point the problem but I'm hoping that you guys with much more experience with these tractors might have seen this before or can help me head in the right direction.
