Hi guys,
I have a 318 with a P218 engine, after running for about 20-30 minutes, if I go downhill with the mower pto on the engine with start to cut out bad and sometimes die.... it only does it warm, pto on, and pointing downhill (sometimes turning hard and fast)... fuel lines are replaced, pto is new, seat switch is bypassed, pto is direct wired to switch and battery, and I have tried a jumper wire to the coil to bypass the TDM, still does it... also the cylinder head temp (according to my laser temp gun) is at about 310F.. not sure if that is a problem

does anybody know the float height setting, I have tried to move it up and down a couple of times, didn't seem to make a difference
also, I have performed load/draw testes on most of the electrical components.. they are all within spec....
this one really has me puzzled
